How do I fix my clutch on a 88 ford ranger
It's either linkage or pressure plate springs collapsed. Hopefully you have an inspection plate you can take off bell-housing to see in. But..man, you are asking how to fix. If pressure plate is bad or disc burned up, pull transmission out, un- hook fork on throwout bearing and linkage to it. Unbolt pressure plate...maybe 6 bolts holding it on flywheel, if flywheel has blue colors on it, remove it too and have it re-surfaced or buy a new one. Assemble reverse. If you have never done one, plan on a day or weekend. Have a decent tool set at hand or you will get nowhere fast
Look my friend, don't just start all that without making SURE it NEEDS a pressure plate and disc. If it's something else and you pulled your transmission out for nothing you would hunt me down and shoot me And if you do buy a clutch kit, make sure it has a plastic dummy shaft in the kit
Thanks bud. But I checked my fluid level and it was low so I put some in and the petal still don't have any resistance. Could it be the master cylinder??
Oh crap. I wasn't even thinking hydraulic. Now you have my permission to shoot me. Yes, it very well could be. I had my mind on my 1976..sorry 'bout that
Or slave cylinder ..I will look for a bleeding procedure

If it was low of fluid,it will have to be bled,but even if it get,s you going,there is a leak somewhere.
Thanks guys it worked like a charm
