Who did that work?

If you did yourself, you should have a very good
idea of how things went & learned a lot

If you paid for that, I would be upset & of coarse
you have to take it back,then the shouting & non-
sense starts

Transmission Knock on a standard with the flywheel
& clutch R&R

Don't understand the noise part-- if it was or wasn't there before

More info & where your at on the resolution

    David if the bearings are bad what sort of shop does that kind of half repair I know-- just have to vent

  • Anonymous Nov 26, 2014

    The flywheel should be balanced,then the pressure plate bolted on & all that gets balanced again then you balance the driveshaft as well That is what i have done for 50 years Then no problems except the front or all main shaft ball bearings in trans

SOURCE: replaced slave cylinder 2004 ford ranger 4x4 still no pedal

I had the same problem with my 1995 1500 p.u.. Assuming your clutch slave cylinder is the concentric style. If not disregard. I hate that set up. what the hell was wrong with the old outside of the bell housing slave/ mechanical style fork and throw out bearing bla bla? Its because ford as well of the rest of the lovely auto makers decided long ago to make them as hard as hell to repair on you own. Ive been told theres a spsecial tool just for this bleeding task. Pobably. They make those tools to sell to us so they can further profit from us poor suckers.Also I wonder on your model if its concentric, does it have the difficult sized bleeder valve as mine did? or have they gotten a little more user friendly? doubt it. In my case as this style is a closed system I followed the bleeding intructions to a tee. That did get alot more clutch action for me, after 15 attempts.However I do believe the problem after looking and further inspection under the dash? look up under the dash and inspect your pedal rack and frame. I found mine was cracked and the cause of poor aliegnment. check for that rite away. I located another rack but before I got around to replacing it, the tranny blew, and the trucks sitting on my dads property. Its still a danmed good truck and one of these days I will get on it again. Anyway up untill the tranny blew I was never able to get more than half the distance from the pedal and besides the rack problem I would love to know the bleeding anser, that is if Im off target. Going to be up against it again when I replace that transmission. Hope this helps a little. Food for thought maybe? If you find out something more helpful post it so I will know too.

1989 ford ranger transmission


I'll tell you like I tell everyone else, go to the local auto parts store, spend $25 on the repair manual for your truck and in the manual is a step by step procedure for replacing the clutch, P plate and bearing. This all entails removing the transmission. And a 1989 has a hydraulic clutch,and the slave cylinder is internal if I'm not mistaken, so why you have the trans removed you should also replace the slave cylinder because it'll be just your luck after you get it all back together the slave starts to leak.

Manual Transmission rattling and rough driving.


If the truck was ran low on fluid to the point it clangs and bangs, the internal damage is done.
The best you can hope for is burnt bearings and hopefully the shafts are not scored. Disassembly is the only solution. Or a used transmission.

2001 Ford ranger edge. The gears won't change.


The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.

1993 Ford Ranger 4x4 clutch slave cylinder


In my experience, the main cause of a problem like this is either due to incorrect installation or not using an OEM slave cylinder! As far as the clutch wear, when replacing a clutch it is absolutely necessary to have the flywheel machined at a machine shop!

89 ranger manual trans slipping already replace clutch and slave cylinder? still slipping any help?


Manual transmissions do not slip ie. when the gears mesh, there is no slip unless they strip out and make an awful noise and will not pull henceforth.

You probably still have a slipping clutch plate against the flywheel. You need to adjust the clutch petal linkage shaft to allow the pressure plate to be release from the thrust bearing, ie shorten the shaft length.. If you and most likely you do just have the clutch release slave cylinder that releases the clutch when you apply the petal. You need to bleed the slave cylinder of any excess fluid or air that may have entered the line if you opened it at any point. You need to bleed it as you would a break cylinder and this should fix ya.
good luck.
good luck

Manual transmission slipping


did you have the flywheel resurfaced when you were having the clutch replaced. Not resurfacing the fly wheel can cause slippage and premature clutch failure. also did the release bearing run smoothly on the input shaft sleeve. sometimes the sleeve can get a burr on it preventing full release of the pressure plate. mike

Clutch fluid


I would first check for leaks, and if no leaks i would check your master and slave cylinders if they are working properly
