If third, forth, and fifth work OK then there could be a selector problem. Does the gear stick go into the correct position? If so then selector and or other internal problem which will require removal

SOURCE: 06 ford focus 5spd. no 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.

SOURCE: 1994 Ford Ranger won't shift into drive

In 9 out of 10 cases when I see this problem in the ranger, it is the planetary gear in the transmission. It is made of the cheapest metal available. It breaks usually from going to park before the truck stops or switching from reverse to drive while still rolling. Just a Idea , But I hope it isn't that . Reverse will work fine for a while, and have no forward gears.

Hi:
Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 1st and 2nd don't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

On my 1986 Ford Ranger 5-spd manual, as I slow down why does the gear shift sound like it is rattling and I can feel it in the stick?


Good day. My neighbor had the same issue. Now what we did was drained as much of the gear oil we could and replaced it with fresh. We also added some Lucas gear oil conditioner. No more shimmy or shake. Even shifted smoother. Hope this helps. Have plenty of rags and please recycle used oil or grease.

When stopped gears sometime grind when shifting into 1st gear(2001 Ford Focus)


Then the clutch is not releasing properly & the continual
grinding will wear the gear teeth & you may also have worn
syncros, that will require you to pull the trans & go thru it, as well
as do a clutch replacement

Have a manual transmission in our 04 Ranger. 500


You could have a problem with the clutch actuation system. It could be the master or the slave cylinder. Does the clutch pedal feel funny? Look under the steering column and locate the pushrod at the top of the clutch pedal. If it is wet where it goes through the firewall, then the master cylinder needs to be repaired/replaced. Raise the hood and check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir and refill if necessary. Look under the truck and locate the slave cylinder on the side of the transmission. If it looks wet (oily), replace it. Bleed the system of air bubbles.

It is possible to drive the truck without a clutch. You have to start it in 1st gear. Accelerate gently, then take your foot off the gas and gently pull the gear shift into 2nd. When the engine rpm drops to match the transmission input speed, 2nd gear will engage. Repeat the process with 3rd through 5th. It will take a little practice to do this well, but you can do it.

My 1996 ford ranger has to be forced into 1st and 2nd gears. its a manual transmission. what would cause this?


Sounds like the clutch is going or the slave or master cylinder is failing. You could have some bad gear synchronizers.

Ford transmission wines in 1st 2nd 3rd revers, no


It is a 5 speed manual transmission? If it is noisey in all gears except for 4th, then the problem is countershaft bearings.

Transmission shifting on 2001 Ford Ranger


That sound means the transmission fluid is dirty. Go to a shop and get a BG Power Flush.
