If you look down in the top of the transmission where the shifter goes. You will see three parts. These parts are forks. There is a center slot in all three. The slots have to be lined up and in the center. This is neutral. Then the shifter can be installed.

SOURCE: shifter knob removal

the shift knob is glued and pressed on, the best way to remove it intact is to heat the knob with a heat gun and pull straight up with a lot of force, please be very careful because when the knob finally releases there is very good chance that you can hit yourself in the face, if the knob is not to be used again you cut a **** up the side with a dremal tool,

Try to see past the slave hose and bleeder to see if you can see the slave work. Could it be stuck in the depressed position? Have a helper push the pedal while you watch. I think your tranny is broke.

SOURCE: Exhaust removal required to drop transmission on 92 Ford Ranger?

Yes you do. trust me you don't want to get that thing half way out and down and not be able to continue. Soak those rusted exhaust studs in a good penetrating oil over night. I bet they come right out. I would not recomend cutting the pipe.

I have a 1987 ford ranger 4x4 and im trying to figure out how to remove the shifter linkage from the tranny to drop the tranny


Hi danielh_04,
There are two different manual transmissions for that year but both processes are about the same. You need to remove the screws from the shifter boot and pull it back to gain access to the top of the transmission through the floor board. You should see a cover with bolts. Remove the bolts and pull the cover off. Then you want to carefully pull up on the shifter. The lever,shim and the bushing should come out. After you get it removed,you can cover the hole with a rag and drop the transmission. Good luck,if you need anything else,let me know,Chuck.

How do you remove the gear shift lever on a 93 ford ranger?


many of these trucks have a mazda trans in them, to remove these shifters you will need to remove the 4 phillips head screws from the corners of the trim around the shifter boot and pull it up out of your way. it's not necessary to remove the boot from the shifter, just lift it up for access to the top of the trans. at the base of the shifter on the top of the trans you will see a plate attached with torx head screws. remove all but 2 of them, now make sure the trans is in neutral and remove the last 2 screws and pull the shifter straight up. the shifter is now out leaving a big hole open on the top of the trans for dirt to fal into so put a wrag in it or screw a piece of cardboard to it. installation is the reverse. good luck

5 speed trans. hung in 4th gear


Can;t be sure on this one except to tell you that you may have a bent or broken shift fork in the tranny. The only way to find out is to remove the shifter from the top of the tranny and see if you can see the fork and move it in and out of gear. If not the next step is to remove the tranny and take it apart. With the information you gave that is about all I can help you with unless there is more info you can give to me.

The trans gearing is all the same, the rear end gear set is where final drive ratio is determined
