Question about 2003 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
I've had this truck (1993 4x4 extra cab) for a few years, it's got about 150k miles on it. The slave cylinder blew, which, thanks to Ford design, requires me to drop the whole transmission and put in a new clutch besides. I talked to the previous owner, who reports that he put three clutches in the vehicle before I bought it, and "at least one of them was because of the slave, maybe more." It's now dead in the street. I am starting to not like the odds of what seems to be a new clutch and a big headache/$1000 every 35k miles, especially if it's because of poor design. Is this par for owning such a vehicle?
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!
