It's not the clutch, it is the clutch slave cylinder. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder and you will see that it will be empty. The problem is the trans has to be removed to replace it.

the transfer case is sticking from non use, change the lube in the case ( Ford ATF) and drive it for awhile it should be ok then.

SOURCE: My clutch won't engage

There is a rubber plug on the bottom of the transmission bellhousing. Remove the plug and look in to see if the slave cylinder is leaking. If yes the transmission will need removed to replace it. While you are there, check the clutch disc and pressure plate and replace as needed.

Chances are the linkage for the transfer case is out of adjustment try loosening the adjuster bolt and put the 4WD shifter into the position 4WD high or low (depending upon which position it's lockup in) then lock down the adjuster bolt, try to shift out of 4wd sometimes you need to go forward and backward with the vehicle to get it out of 4wd, when you get it out of 4wd you may have to fine tune the adjustment to get it to engage and disengage smoothly it's a trial and error thing keep resetting adjuster until you get the desired effect.

Start out with buying yourself a $25 book from the Parts House. The I would go to the front HUBS, secure & safety vehicle before you do anything, Clean, Inspect, Lune & Repair front Hubs as required, get the brakes while you're there. Check your drive line, axles, u-joints etc. Clean , repair , replace as needed. Check for Tranfer case Operation. Is there power going to the front Axle when 4WD is engaged? do you feel a change when you engage the Transfer Case? Have you checked the Power on the circuits? Have you Manual or Auto-locking Front Hubs? Answer all those Questions & read before you do anything.

My ford ranger 4x4 5 spd. has started howling when I'm going down the road and it only stops when I either push in on the clutch or put it in neutral.


What speeds, does it make more noise in 4 wheel drive or the same. There are several possibilities, need more information. Does it howl in all the gears or in 5th gear only.

Neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal may be going out. Its a $15 fix. It tells the computer if the clutch is engaged. If it goes out its like trying to start with out pushing in the clutch, wont turn over at all. Hope this helps.

The stiff clutch may just be the nature of the car. Ask your friend if they know of any problems with the clutch. If it doesn't make any odd noises, I think it would be safe. If the clutch is cable controlled, rather than a hydraulic clutch. it may need adjusting. It won't affect the stiffness, but it may make shifting a little smoother.

I know on mine (88 ranger 4x4 manual transfer case and ******, 2.9 v6, short wheel base) it has what seems to me to be something similar to a nuetral safety switch. The starter will not even try to engage unless the clutch is in. You're kind of vague in your description. But if your issue is not getting it to turn over when in nuetral, and not pressing in the clutch I don't think anything is broken, that it is a safety feature from Ford

That would be the actulator on the transfer case. More than likely it needs replaced. Check for good connection at the plug on the tranfer case.
