Asked by Jun 05, 2011 at 06:57 PM about the 1991 Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving and shifted into nuetral coming to a light. After I shifted the shifter into first gear and tried to go. it seemed the tranny was till in 4th or 5th and stalled. I pushed in on the clutch and restarted normally. but as I let off the clutch the same thing. I even shifted into the reverse slot, but still seemed like it was in that 4th or 5th gear. any ideas?  My hydralic fluid is fine.

Can you shift into neutral or is the tranny stuck in gear all the time? If you shift to neutral and let the clutch all the way out does it stall? Bent or damaged shift rod... bad release bearing... broken gear teeth... or the fear shifter itself could be warped or bent.
