Question about Ford Ranger

1 Answer

1998 Ranger 2.5 , 5 spd. Clutch has never given me trouble til about an hour ago while i was in town my clutch felt funny and was slipping bad. I didnt smell any burning clutch so i tried to baby it home. Well,i didnt make it. The top clutch fluid reservoir is full. But at the the same time my brake pedal got weak. I pressed the brake and it was sucking air from the cap. Is the slave cylinder and master cylinder all tied together on this piece of ****. Im lost. Please help!!

No, the manual shows independent systems. Seems like a coincidence, but your brakes are leaking and your clutch plate has failed. Is there still stiffness in the clutch pedal? Better look for where the fluid's leaking out...

I was releasing my clutch and heard and FELT a "snap." It's a 1993 Geo Metro with a 3 cylinder engine and manual transmission. After the snap it felt like it wasn't quite "grabbing" when I released the...


Try a new cable, and make sure the funky suzuki weak pedal
is not cracked or the spline at top end is not stripped.
there are 2 parts here. not counting the shift lever that can fail.
1: the pedal actuator and cable.
2: the clutch actual.

if the clutch lever moves (at bell) 1 inch the (no play) then the clutch is bad.
see that simple test? the 1 inch?
you step on the pedal and the lever on the throw out moves 1inch.
that is all the curator does.


the cables is only good for like 100kmiles, (more if lubed)
and like to break in the center where you cant see, they fry there
and prevents you from setting up free play right.
see the problem here? if the cable is bad , you had tension on the
bell lever and the clutch slipped and burned up.
the cable is the cheapest part and the lowest labor.
why folks replace it last , is a wonder. but see that all the time.

do you understand the free play rules here. on all clutches.
(cable or lever type)
it must have free play, 1/2 inch at the pedal or 1/8" at bell lever.
if not the throwout burns up.
if not, (worse) the clutch slips.
if not the PP fingers overheat and the spring fails, (anneals)
free play.
and changes to tighter as you drive and clutch wears.
if you cant get the free play right ,its a big issue.
the #1 reason is bad CABLE. $25 and its out.

Clutch slips on 96 geo prizm.


usually a slipping clutch is a bad clutch
the acid test is to remove the slave
point car in safe direction ,
start car in gear, does it slip now?
yes, then the clutch is bad.
you do this test off road safely..
it can only be 2 things, think about it.
1: bad clutch 99%
2; a seized ,while extended slave.

My 2000 ford focus does good, til i change into 2nd gear, then from 2nd through 5th gears, it jerks and barely runs. and when it gets real bad, it causes the clutch to slip, what could be the cause of...


So you can race the engine in neutral, and no problem with it trying to die? If that's so, I think you need a clutch job. A clutch disc contaminated with oil or grease will cause jerking and slipping.

your clutch is slipping. this may be caused by worn pressure plate, clutch disc or oil seal failure. there are other components that may require attention, such as the clutch master and slave cylinders and fluid level.

The clutch is not engaging correctly- if you let clutch petal up, it slips (if you give gas it's worse). If no or little gas given, clutch slowly engages after the clutch petal is all the way up.


sounds like you may be able to adjust the clutch and correct the problem, look at the clutch cable and and adjust it some and see if it helps, if it does then adjust it til you feel it is right.

The clutch pedal sticks down when trying to engage


YOU DO NEED A NEW DISC AND MOST LIKELY A MASTER AND SLAVE HYDRAULIC CLUTCH CYLINDERS, THE STICKING MAY BE DUE TO OVER TRAVEL DUE TO THE WORN OUT DISK.

It's likely the clutch was not fitted perfectly straight, if it is set off center then the clutch will ALWAYS be slipping a little, Get hot and wear out prematurely.

Clutch replacement on 2004 tiburon with a v6 6 speed


I have a solution for your clutch failure.
ALL... Hyundai Tiburons from 2003 and on use a clutch slave cylinder delay valve.
It is designed to smooth your clutch engagement.
Problem?.. It RUINS clutches by slowing down clutch engagement.
It actually MAKES your clutch slip!
All you need to do is REMOVE this silly little 8 dollar part and not only will your clutch feel fantastic, you will have normal clutch wear!
I myself own a 2004 Tibby, and took the valve out since early 2006 and have put 25,000 miles trouble free miles from it.
I thought the clutch felt "Odd".. being a long time driver of manual transmissions, it just wasnt right.
I felt like there might be something slowing down the clutch engagement.
I was right.
This can be considered a Mod, because it improves performance (lack of slipping).
Why Hyundai used this part at the cost of warranty claims is beyond me, but I have given you the solution to your problem.
This part effects both 2.0L,I4 and 2.7 V6 engines.
This will not affect your warranty because they will never know its missing. ;)
I feel hyundai needs to take care of its customers, but I assure you, no matter how you get this problem resolved from the dealer.. PLEASE REMOVE THE DAMN VALVE.. you wont regret it!
:)
