You will have to take the top cover off the transmission to expose the the gears. This way you can knock the bearing out if it won't come out the front. If there is a snap ring on the bearing on the inside of the case, you will have to break it down. It has been a while since I have torn one down, but the snap ring should be on the outside in front of the bearing, on the shaft. Good Luck, I hope this has been helpful.

In order to start my 2001 ford ranger I need to depress the clutch or put it in neutral now when I depress the clutch the truck jumps as though the clutch is still engaged

Hello Zachary, There is only one explanation that I can come up with for your situation. If your input shaft bushing or bearing is dirty or dry , that could cause the symptom of the clutch not releasing. Usually a dry or dirty input shaft bushing or bearing will make some kind of noise when the clutch pedal is depressed when the engine is running while shifting gears.

Change throwout bearing 2002 ford mustang gt 4.6 litte

The throw out bearing slides on a collar behind the input shaft on the front of the transmission inside the bell housing.
It will require removal of the drive shaft, shifter handle, transmission, & clutch cable to gain access to it.
Recomend having this done by a professional.

There was a roaring noise that sounded like it was coming from the transmission. This went on for a long period of time because I didnt know what was causing it. The roaring would stop when I would press...

the problem is in the transmission
if the noise stopped when in 4th gear then that indicates main shaft and counter shaft bearing problems
there is no actual 4th gear but a sliding dog that locks the input shaft to the main output shaft making te drive a complete shaft
that means that there is no side load on the bearings and so the noise stops
when all of the balls get to one side of the race because the cage has failed , then the gears can get out of mesh and lock up on the teeth
At this point a box removal and pull down by an accredited transmission shop would be in order to get a proper diagnosis and quote
I suspect that another box from a wreckers or junk yard will be the cheaper repair option

I'm trying to replace my ball joints on my 1997 ford ranger and was wondering how I remove the axle shafts? Do I have to remove the whole front end?

No, but you might have to separate the tie rod ends as well as the lower ball joints. With the axle nut off, have someone use a long pry bar between the a-frame and the car frame or fender skirt to pull the a-frame down and separate the lower ball joint. Then swing the hub away from the truck until it clears the a-frame. Next, pull the axle from the hub and finally pull it straight out of the tranny. You might need a drip pan in case the tranny leaks with the axle out.

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new

Of coarse it does. The battery was probably okey. The Alternator has nothing to do, with starting a vehicle,but the solenoid on the starter does.
Pull the starter and put on a new solenoid.

2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain

The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
