My 1995 ford ranger clutch is hard to press, will go in gear without cluth, and wount pull. Whats the problem?
Let's clarify. It goes in gear but you release clutch but no movement? It goes in gear without clutch pedal pressed engine running?
Both, trk. Remain running out of gear.
Remain running in gear and out
Clutch shot. If you never smelled the disc burning up, then it could be the splines stripped out in disc, pressure plate not engaging, several possibilities like that. But pedal hard to push indicates a pressure plate problem. Bottom line, needs clutch and probably new or re-surfaced flywheel
So,sounds like pressure plate and clutch needs replaced. Give me a ballpoint price, parts and labor.
$600 -$800 Parts $225 to $330 depending on what quality you choose, ....Labor $400 shop $500 dealer. Parts include disc. pressure plate. pilot bearing, throwout bearing. But if flywheel has blue streaks on it it needs to be re-surfaced or replaced on top of that
You can probably find a clutch kit with all parts for less. That sounds high to me, just took off NAPA site
Just priced parts, clutch $45, pressure plate $149, labor $300. Do this sound about right?
Yep, that's reasonable. I did think what I found was a bit high but you must get throwout bearing also and pilot bearing, which keeps transmission shaft aligned
Ok. Thanks alot.
You're welcome. Happy to help
In my experience the flywheel always needs to be resurfaced. Not doing that could lead to problems like clutch shudder.
