How does your clutch feel? You might just have to just adjust the clutch peddle.

    ok no adjustment for your clutch. Not even on the tranny? Have you try double clutching for the frist gear? Let me know and I'm sure that I can fine the problem. I might not get back to you until early next week, I have to go away for work.

    Wow sorry about that I turned around and it's mid week. Here is the way to bleed the clutch system. Now you have to fine out if you have an externally or internally slave cylinder.



    EXTERNALLY MOUNTED SLAVE CYLINDER

    1) remove slave cyl from the transmission, using a 3/32" diameter punch, remove the pin that holds hyd line in slave cyl. Remove hyd line from slave cyl.

    2) Place hyd line into container for waste fluid. Hold slave cyl so hyd port is at highest point. Fill slave cyl, though hyd line port with DOT 3 brake fluid. Gently push on slave cyl push rod to expel all air.

    3) When all air has been expelled, install slave cyl. Remove clutch master cyl reservoir cap. While maintaining fluid level in reservoir, observe hyd line until all air has been expelled and a steady stream of fluid is flowing.

    4) Install reservoir cap, Install hyd line and pin. Top off brake fluid. With transmission in Neutral and park brake set, start vehicle, shift into reverse. If gears grind, check foe air in system. Repeat bleeding procedure if necessary. If no air is found and gears grind, clutch components may be deflective or worn out.



    INTERNALLY MOUNTED SLAVE CYLINDER.

    1) Clean area around reservoir cap. Fill reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Place hose on bleeder screw to prevent brake fluid entering bell housing. Loosen bleeder screw and maintain fluid level in reservoir.

    2) Fluid and bubbles will flow from hose attached to slave cyl. bleeder screw. Close bleeder screw when fluid stream is free of all air bubbles. Ensure proper fluid level and install reservoir cap.

    3) Place light pressure on clutch pedal and open bleeder screw. Maintain pressure until pedal contacts the floor. Close bleeder screw while clutch pedal is fully depressed. DO NOT allow pedal to return before bleeder screw is fully close. check fluid level.

    4) Test system operation by starting vehicle, depressing clutch and placing gear shifter in reverse. No grinding should be heard or felt with clutch pedal within 1/2" (13mm) of floor. If noise is heard check air in system. Repeat bleeding procedure if necessary.



    Hope this helps please let me know how you make out.



    Cheers.

On 1991 stealth r/t 5 speed manual , yesterday shifted fine, have had issue with 2nd gear, ( a little hard to hit sometimes ) , But other than that shifted smoothly. Today all gears very hard to shift to,...


ok starting where you did... on the side of the transmission itself there will be a 1/2 inch socketed plug that can be undone to add gear oil there will be another on the bottom that can be used to drain the oil. for clutch master, standard brake fluid can be used and is recommended. the causes is most likely low fluid or worn out syncros in the tranny.. check the level of fluid in the clutch system and fill and bleed system at the slave cylinder. after that check fluid in the tranny. if all there is fine then i would recommend bringing it to a trans shop for diagnosis. if the syncros are going out then you will be looking to spend between 750 and 1500 to have it rebuilt or 2000+ for a new trans

I have a 1989 ford ranger five speed manual 2.3 liter 4 cyl i am haveing problems gettin it to go into gear and the clutch is also in the floor but if i turn the truck off it will go into gear and if i...


do this...

make sure the reservoir is full
engine off and pump the clutch pedal slowly about 5-10 times
while holding the pedal down have assistant open the bleeder on the master located in the trans

if you get a good squirt then your concern is the master
if no squirt then replace the slave

neither job is quick but the slave is 1/2 time

Transmission is shifting hard and slow to pull on a 95 silouette also makes clucking sounds while accelerating


Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Hard time shifting. replaced clutch slave cylinder. still shifts hard. plenty of clutch fluid.


Sometimes the slave cylinder takes a little extra bleeding to remove the air in it & until it's all gone, the clutch won't open completely, causing the problem you are describing.

If the shifting can be done between all of the gears while the engine isn't running on level ground then the forks should be ok & not bent inside the transmission and you should be able to get the car to shift properly.

I've done several of these and found that if you start by making sure the Clutch Master cylinder is full, and remember when you add fluid, try to add without aerating the fluid. Pouring down the side of a funnel is better than pouring straight into the container as fluid picks up air during the splash. Hopefully doing it this way will prevent small new air bubbles from getting back into the lines when bleeding.

Next, after having one person pump the clutch pedal quickly 3 or 4 times & continuing to hold the pedal to the floor until you've completed this phase, instead of just releasing the pressure through the bleeder valve, also push on the clutch fork/rod to go ahead & force the fluid completely out of the slave cylinder, tighten the bleeder and have the assistant slowly pump the pedal to bring the slave cylinder back into contact to where it was before you pushed it to drain it. Refill & bleed as usual a couple of times. If you don't have a good clutch pedal now with good release, you need to check the Clutch Master Cyliinder since once the bleeding is done, this is a completely automatically adjusting system. good luck

94 tauras AT once warmed up trans will drop out gear at a stop


This is a common problem. You have a cracked forward clutch piston. Ford made this part out of aluminum. The replacements are steel. But you have to disassemble the transmission to install it. ( I know you said Rev too, In the AXODE trans, the forward clutch is on in 1st and reverse)

91 Ford Ranger 4 cyl 5 speed. Can`t find clutch slave cyl. bleeder. Internal slave. Hard at times to get into 1st and rev. Also can`t find connector to hook up tester for check engine light on.


first the bleeder will be located on the cylinder that is mounted on the transmission to engine connection by the bell housing. Second the port for this is located along the drivers side under the hood either by the fire wall or along the top of wheel well it will be marked with a grey cap labled EEC.
