2002 Ford Ranger Clutch Problems

My 2002 Ford Ranger is having clutch problems. When I push in the clutch in order to switch to first gear I can't push the stick in. There seems to be no pressure in the clutch. I have to turn the truck off in order to get into first or reverse gears. Also, when I try to accelerate, the engine (or transmission) starts to slip. What may the problem be?

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.

I am having problems getting my 1998 ford ranger 2.5L into gear. The shifter is loose, and I have to put it in neutral to start it.

If your having to put it in neutral to start because its wanting to move while clutch is pushed in and the transmission is in gear, and shifter gears is rough, then the clutch probably needs replaced, or clutch slave cylinder needs replaced.

Ok i have a 2000 ford ranger has high milage but runs fine until the other day. got off the freeway and would not let me shift out of 5th. so u pushed clitch in and coasted to gas station and stopped it....

Hello Blue, In order to ease your mind some the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing and it will not be in a clutch kit but needs to be replaced and when you have replaced the clutch assembly and slave cylinder,I recommend using DOT5 brake fluid which has a higher boiling point than DOT3 to bleed the system.
