Asked by Sep 16, 2019 at 12:45 AM about the 1998 Ford Ranger XLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 ford ranger 2.5 5 speed. I was driving the
truck and the clutch was fine, I got to where I was going
and when I went to take off my truck didn't move. I was
able to freely move my shifter through every gear with out
touching my clutch. And when i went to press the clutch it
was really hard to press and then became soft as thought
the pedal was just there for show My fluid is full.

1 Answer

Two things. 1. You may have air in the fluid and it needs a flush (that would explain the soft pedal) but if it’s not shifting right then it may be time for a new clutch I’ve had plenty of friends with that ranger have to replace the clutch I drive a 98 Ranger but it’s automatic so obviously I don’t have to worry about that.
