HI Joseph

I also have a 4.0L Fairmont but a 1997 model. I had the gearbox overhauled by Armstrong Ford Pietermaritzburg who referred it to Gearmax- no problems since with the box- cost around R14000 in 2006.

May be the clutch master or slave cylinder. Has the fluid level gone down at all? Have a look around the clutch pedal area for signs of fluid leakage. Good luck, Bob.
