On many manual transmissions, very easy.
you didn't say what transmission you have
you didn't say what transmission (do you mean transmission
or transfer mission)
who told you fork is bad? ask that person
how can they tell you fork is bad without taking it out and looking at it?
sounds like you need a mechanic.

good luck

    I used to own this truck and never had any trouble with it. The new owner forced it into gear and think a fork may be bent. Im thinking about buying it back and just wondered if this could possibly be the problem? I think the truck has the FM146 tranny.

    ok, based on your response if you are mechanically inclined, you could get it done in a couple hours.
    there are 3 forks in this transmission. 1 - 2 fork, 3 - 4 fork, and 5th - reverse fork. they run 20 - 25 $ each. if you need pins/ guides/ anything else damaged would be more. you may not need to remove the transmission from vehicle to do this. check out this URL: http://www.manualtransmissionpart.com/mm...

Honestly, while there is a chance that there is a bigger problem, it sounds more like its time for a transmission service. Hard thunking shifts when starting or stopping with no other apparent symptoms on older vehicles can usually be corrected by a transmission flush. if you pull out your tranny dipstick and the fluid is any darker than bright red and/or smells burnt (smell should make you cringe a bit) then take it to a shop and get it flushed out. I recommend a service center that uses a BG power flush unit. These services seem expensive on the surface but only have to be done about once every 3 years and can prevent more costly and involved repairs down the road.

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.

SOURCE: CRUISE CONTROL QUIT WORKING ON 94 RANGER 4.0L 4X4

there is a control box for the cruise control behind the glove box . You can remove the cover by pushing in from both sides of the glove box door . the control box will be just inside the glove box to the top. it simply unplugs. any junk yard with an aerostar or ranger or explorer will have one of these control boxes fairly cheap. these control boxes are commonly known to just quit workingand are a very easy fix.

SOURCE: 92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear

Hi:

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

If your 3rd gear doesn'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.

Shift fork wont move/all hydrolics replaced


Just a suggestion here but my son was experiencing the same problem with his Toyota Celica. We replaced the clutch and throwout bearing and MC, had me stumped for days the I pulled back the rubber boot on the MC where the it comes through the firewall under the dash and saw that there was fluid leaking into the boot so basically the MC was bad an it was bypassing the metering valve causing the fluid not to push the slave cylinder all the way down for engagement. On another car ...a 97 Saturn SL it wouldn't shift into gear, also all new clutch components. Wound up being a bad top right side motor mount was bad. engine was sagging just enough to cause the clutch not to shift properly. I hope this helps.

Transmission going bad?


popping out of gear means your shifting forks need adjustment, same as the grinding. the tranny is probably good, just the top part, the shifting mechanism needs to be repaired, so it would be cheaper to repair than rebuilding the whole transmision.still, im guessing about 300-500$ depending where you live.

5 speed trans. hung in 4th gear


Can;t be sure on this one except to tell you that you may have a bent or broken shift fork in the tranny. The only way to find out is to remove the shifter from the top of the tranny and see if you can see the fork and move it in and out of gear. If not the next step is to remove the tranny and take it apart. With the information you gave that is about all I can help you with unless there is more info you can give to me.
