Have it scanned for codes. On inclines it should drop out of overdrive. This could be an engine or transmission problem. Also check vacuum lines.

SOURCE: 5th. Gear

Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.

SOURCE: Jumps out of 5th gear on the highway

Either you have a worn shift fork and fifth is not fully engaging or the synchro for that gear is worn Both are internal and if fork is worn I suggest you have synchro replaced as well..

Manual Transmission 5 speed


check the drain plug magnet for metal bits. Mostly you can remove the rear extension housing with out removing the gear box and you will find a small gear on the cluster shaft ( bottom shaft) and a larger gear on the out put shaft ( tail shaft) . Check that the shifter fork is actually moving the larger gear or gear dog into 5th gear (Fork loose on selector rail) or check that there are still teeth on the smaller gear as excessive high speed under load will rear out the teeth

Ranger looses power up hill


I am assuming you have the 2.3 liter 4cylinder engine.. This is common in all rangers straight out of the factory with that motor. Your asking alot out of a 4 cylinder truck that also get good gas mileage. they just do not have the capacity to gain speed up a hill. There are a few solutions for you that you could try. If it is a 5 speed manual transmission try to speed up before the hill and when you start losing speed go to 4th gear. this is also good for using as a passing gear as im sure you have noticed you lack power when trying to rapidly accelerate at highway speed to pass. an aftermarket cold air intake combined with a less restrictive exuast will give you anywhere from 5-20 hp gain AND give you more MPG's

Or you can buy a light truck with a v6 or v8 in it. rangers can be equipped with v6 as can chevy s10's. dodge dakotas have the availability of small block v8. this is of course will cost you alot in gas (based on experience) I am a 10 yr mechanic and have owned 2- 4 cylinder rangers a 93 and a 94 my dakota which i still own is a 01

2002 Grand Am - 2.2L Manual Trans - really sluggish in 5th gear - going 100KM/hr and there is vertually no GO GO when you give it gas and need to down shift if you are going up hill. Seems to be fine


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

GMC Sonoma Automatic Transmission Problem


The transmission is this truck is a 4L60E. It is electronicly controled through several sensors. It will sense the load on the motor mainly through the TPS (throttle position sensor).It is not uncommon for you to have to really press the gas to make it down shift. Alot of the feeling depends on gear ratio in the rear end. The 4.3 is a very good engine, but it combined with a high gear rear end and overdrive may really seem under powered. You can put a programmer on it to change all the shift and power feel.If you are not having a hesitation issue then it will most likley not be the tps. You may just need a fuel and air filter, not knowing when it was last changed. The programmer is the best way to get the feeling you may be used to. Good Luck
