Ford Ranger XLT will not shift into any gear except neutral when idling

10

Asked by May 01, 2017 at 12:57 AM about the 1994 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck is a Ford Ranger XLT short bed 3.0L six cylinder 5-speed
transmission from 1994.  When the truck is on and idling, I cannot shift the
stick into any gear.  It is as if I would have to force it into the gear to make it
shift.  When I do force it into a gear, the transmission grinds.  I found out the
Clutch Fluid Resivoir was bone dry, so I filled it to the line, but that did not
help.  I am able to shift into 2nd gear without pressing the clutch down when
the truck is stationary and not running.  Is there anyone that can possibly tell
me what could be wrong?

If the clutch fluid was dry you probably need to replace the clutch slave cylinder. The clutch isn't releasing causing the gears to grind. If it were mine I would also replace the clutch master cylinder.

Thank you very much, Bob, for your answer. We'll have to see how it goes at the mechanic.

Got air bubble in clutch master cylinder , only way to get bubble out is remove and bench bleed master cylinder.
