Re: 93 ranger4x4 standard shifts out of gear when i letup...
Barring anything actually pushing on the shifter, this going to be an issue with wear in the transmission. The synchronizers are worn and when unloaded slip back out of gear. Its going to be a case of a $20 part that costs a lot more to replace! You have a few choices,
1.: Get by as long as possible as is...
2. Get it repaired (that means remove the tyranny, break it down and replace the worn syncros)
3. Replace the tyranny with a good used one. These are common and probably cheaper that the repair.

with auto tranny, when you relieve the acc pressure on the tranny it will drop into a higher gear, this is normal but if your road speed is low and you put your foot down hard it may change back 3 gears, it decides what gear it requires in relation accelerator pressure and road speed, the tranny does have a switch near the selector, this lets every thing know what you want it to do, this is adjustable but can fail also
Your shift linkage is binding up. You need to get a can of white lithium grease, go under your truck, and find where the linkage hooks to the side of the transmission. Every point that you see a connection, i.e., another rod hooking to it, or any pivot point, spray that spot. Follow it to the steering column, and grease those points as well. Work your gear shift through its range, and it should help greatly.
E for economy, and S for sport. The button allows you to switch from normal mode E economy, to S sport mode for better acceleration and quicker down-shifts when driving in a more agressive or performance manner. The S mode will make the transmission shift at higher revs before engaging the next gear, in order to give better response. Likewise when you enter a corner and let off the throttle (gas) , most transmissions will often change to a higher gear. This is not ideal for spirited driving, because you want the revs up a bit and to stay in the lower gear to accelerate out of the corner after you have cleared the apex. For everyday driving the sport mode keeps the car from up-shifting and down-shifting too much in traffic or on windy roads etc. The emphasis is on performance rather than ultimate fuel economy in Sport. Try it out next time you feel sporty and fell the difference. But for best gas mileage leave the car in E mode for economy.
Try this. Go somplace where there are no cars, and no possibility of running into anything. Stop the car. Set the park brake. With the engine running, put the vehicle in 1st gear. Hold the foot brake pedal, and give it gas, and let out the clutch slowly.
If the engine does not stall real quick, the clutch disc is bad.
