What type of fluid goes in a 1994 ford xl ranger 5 speed manual transmission?


Typically 90weight, but just ask the autostore. Sometimes in older trannies one might add a qt of automatic tranny fluid to soften the shifting as syncros wear.

Is the cross member under the load


cross members are the chassis members that tie the side frame rails together. There will be one at the front and another at the centre of the chassis and one at the rear . There is a bolt in cross member at the rear of the gear box (rear engine mount). Most modern cars are uni-construction (that is the body is complete and the front section will have a front cross member and the sub-frame rails will be bolted under the body around the front door pillars and onto the fire wall.. IN heavy vehicles there is a front cross member the carries the front engine mount another after the gear box to carry the cabin mounts and then a member every 3-4 feet to the end of the chassis rails . Their only purpose is to tie the chassis rails together.

Change transmission instructions


this is for rear wheel drive only front wheel drives require removing axle shat and dropping tie rod end and lower ball joint to get tranny out. If you start this I will give tork setting when I know what you have as it is a lot of work to type this out.

First disconnect the battery, inside the cab pull shifter boot off and remove snap ring to remove shifter, next get a block to go under engine remove drive line bolts and be sure E-brake is set and block the wheels, next put bolts from driveline into the read differential in order so you will be able to find them next disconnect the two starter bolts from the starter and tie starter up as not to allow the starter weight to hang on the wires. Remove two bolts holding slave cylinder on let hang off the side do not lose the shaft out of slave. Next remove the transmission mount bolt out next pull four bolts out of transmission cross member, next remove 5 bolts out of bell housing now get a baggie and a couple of rubber bands and pull drive shaft slide baggie over the transmission tail shaft and put on rubber band on bag to keep from losing fluid move drive shaft out of the way. Next disconnect the Speedo cable and wiring harness the reverse switch is at the top so will have to drop the tranny down to keep from breaking wire. Once you have a gap between the transmission and engine put block under back of engine slide the transmission out let the front drop down then lift up on rear of transmission and slide the cross member out of the way. Next slide tranny out of the way next remove the 6 bolts on the clutch assembly turning each bolt 1 and a ½ turns each till clutch is loose remove the clutch pressure plate and the throw out bearing, remove flywheel take to machine shop and have surfaced, replace the clutch plate pressure plate and the throw out bearing reinstall in reverse if you see any oil leaks replace seals, also replace rear transmission seal now if you don’t it will leak next after it is back together be sure you put new fluid in the transmission and bleed the slave cylinder.

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.

Transmission mount


Its bout the same for all rear wheel. Place a jack to support the transmission, remove the bolts from the mount and frame. If the tranny on a cross member then you should be able to remove the cross member by 4 bolts, then remove the mount from tranny and cross member.

2002 ford f150 4x4 manual trany want to remove transfer case do iunbolt it from the front or back side of mount


i just did this on my 04 f150 heritage 4x4 manual... first you have to remove the rear cross member where the torsion bars are adjusted at... not sure what you mean by the side mount, but there are i believe six bolts that hold the transfer case to the tranny... 3 on the right, and 3 on the left, the upper right and left are difficult to get to... it makes it easy if you remove the forward drive shaft first and there should be some cable and fuel brackets on top of the tranny back by the transfer case that you could remove to... once you take those bolts out, transfer case should slide right off... let me know if there is anything else i can help with...

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