Sounds like the clutch is going or the slave or master cylinder is failing. You could have some bad gear synchronizers.

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

If third, forth, and fifth work OK then there could be a selector problem. Does the gear stick go into the correct position? If so then selector and or other internal problem which will require removal

Have a manual transmission in our 04 Ranger. 500


You could have a problem with the clutch actuation system. It could be the master or the slave cylinder. Does the clutch pedal feel funny? Look under the steering column and locate the pushrod at the top of the clutch pedal. If it is wet where it goes through the firewall, then the master cylinder needs to be repaired/replaced. Raise the hood and check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir and refill if necessary. Look under the truck and locate the slave cylinder on the side of the transmission. If it looks wet (oily), replace it. Bleed the system of air bubbles.

It is possible to drive the truck without a clutch. You have to start it in 1st gear. Accelerate gently, then take your foot off the gas and gently pull the gear shift into 2nd. When the engine rpm drops to match the transmission input speed, 2nd gear will engage. Repeat the process with 3rd through 5th. It will take a little practice to do this well, but you can do it.
