Question about 1995 Ford Ranger Supercab
I have a 1983 Ford Ranger 4X4 2.3L 4cyl 4speed manual. I have basic mechanic skills and cant quite figure this out. Our local shops are scam artists in this area and everyone wants to replace the transmission (which is a gost), fly wheel, slave cylinder,clutch.throw out ,and even syncronize the gears...come on!!! Heres the deal...when crusing... shifting into 2nd and 3rd it grinds as if the clutch isnt even engaged...if I pump the clutch twice...it doesnt grind @ all. I am going out to bleed the lines right now to see if this works...I hope this is the solution but I think not...any ideas guys?
Your clue is probably that when you pump the clutch twice that it works. I don't know about the 83's but the 96 or so on up have automatic clutch adjustment & when the clutch is worn out that part will not adjust anymore and will create the problem, just like th 97 that i have & haven't changed the clutch yet... (too lazy - waiting for it to totally quit before i fix it) So my guess is that if you haven't changed the clutch, pressure plate t/a bearing stuff, you may need to do that. Ford guys should have told you that.... hope this helps, rick
