Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
I had an '89, clutch was hydraulic. Until you can figure this out, you may be able to bypass the clutch safety switch to get the truck started. A Haynes book will tell you how to put it back together, but if something fell out all by it's own, something's broke.

SOURCE: Clutch will not Engage
You need to bleed it out. It takes some time to do this. There is a bleeder valve above the hose fitting on the tranny. Have some one pump the clutch and hold it down and crack the bleeder nut. Just like you would when you do your brakes.

You seem mechanically inclined, so I want you to try this before you do anything else; let's decern whether or not the clutch is any good .
I want you to unplug the the plug that plugs into the compressor . Just in case there is a possible short somewhere, clip the wire's to the plug, but leave enough wire to reconnect them back . Attach two pieces of wire to the wire's on the plug that you just clipped, making them long enough to reach the battery . Plug the plug back into the compressor . After skinning the wire's on the other end, touch one to the positive (+) side of the battery, and the other to the negative (-) side of the battery . When you do this, you should hear a click from the clutch of the compressor, if you don't then the clutch is bad, if you do; then you are low on freon, your low pressor swith is bad, or you have wiring problem's .
