Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Believe it or not, It might be the fan clutch. I fought my trans for 3 months with the same issue before I realized the fan clutch was bad. It would rapidly lock and unlock at the rpm range that the overdrive shifts at. Sometimes it felt like I was on a dirt road that was washboarded.
Check to see if the fan rotates freely 360 degrees(With engine STOPPED, of course). There should just be smooth resistance. Also check if there is any play by trying to rock the fan fore and aft. There should be no slop.
After I replaced the clutch, the trans shifted fine and even a check engine light went out.
A shuddering fan clutch will send hard vibrations through the truck and mimic a trans issue.
