Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
Truck won't go into reverse or drive this morning. The engine revs, and I can hear the tires squeal like it's trying to move, but nothing. Had this happen a few months ago, but it just "popped" out and went on its way. First big rainstorm and the coldest it's been last night(for Southern California) don't know if that plays a factor. Any ideas?
The b4000 and ranger are known to have valve body seal problems. they tend to lap over the valve body and cause the problems your describing, id bring it to a mechanic and have it checked. it shouldnt be too expensive maybe 150-200 bucks.

Sounds like the first question, and most of the comments are all caused by the parking brake freezing while engaged. happens to me all the time. That would explain the "popped" out and went on its way, as well as not rolling downhill in neutral. I don't even use my parking brake in the winter because of that.
