Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

I have a manual transmission 4.0 V6. No matter how I move the gear shift it seems to stay in 4th gear. Pushing in the clutch does take it out of gear, but no matter where I have the stick place when I release the clutch, it goes back into 4th.

SOURCE: transmission problems (gear linkage)

The gear linkages are not correctly aligned.
Is the gearbox mounting in exactly the same place as when you removed it?
Even a 1/4 inch will offset the gears.
hope this helps

SOURCE: manual transmission takes effort to put in gear.

Have the clutch looked at. If the clutch is not releasing fully it makes shifting difficult. Have the trans fluid changed too, it isn't expensive and probably is listed under your maintanance in the owners manual

SOURCE: My 98 Escort ZX2 manual transmisson seems to shift gear hard!

Clutch may be smooth but this is a sign of the clutch needing replaced. Some of these models have a linkage adjustment under the hood. Others are hydrallic and need fluid. Look under the hood where the steering is and see which you have and address accordingly. Good luck. Check on costs of clutch replacement.

SOURCE: Manual transmission will not shift into any gear,

The problem sounds like the clutch. If you put it in 1st., then start it up, does it try to move with you foot on the clutch? Does the clutch pedal feel different than normal.

My 93 sentra 5 speed wont come out of 4th gear


If the shift linkage is not binding on the outside of the transaxle, then something inside like a shift fork has broken. The transaxle will have to be removed for repair. Such is the way with 20 year old cars where old things break, bad luck for you. It will be an expensive repair. An alternative is a used 5 speed from a salvager. That and a new clutch could have you going again in short order.

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

'89 dodge dakota manual transmission A535 will not shift out of 4th gear. the stick will move around and even go into other slots but gear stays locked in 4th. what's wrong


Most likely solution is the gear selector fork in the transmission has broken and is no longer engaging the gears.

Repair requires transmission removal and partial overhaul.

1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift into overdrive.


4th gear failure is a common problem with this transmission, assuming it is an automatic. You should have the vehicle checked for codes by a qualified repair center with the proper scan tool. Also, check fluid level and condition. More often than not, the trans loses 3rd and 4th gear, as these are working off the same set of clutches. 3-4 clutches apply in 3rd, and when the 4th shift is made the 2-4 band applies giving you overdrive. If you have no engine braking in manual 3rd, you definitely have a mechanical failure, no 4th could be an electrical, or mechanical fault.
