i have a 1998 ford ranger xlt 4x4 3.0 it will go into gear but will not move in any gear dont know what i need too do to fine out why
went to put in gear but it dont move in any gear try to figure out what it could be cant
afford to take to get worked on
Check the transmission fliud. It should be a red color. You could also put in an additive. Like Trans-X.
Is the check engine light on?
my truck is a 5 speed check engine light always been on sence i replaced oil pump last month
See if you can get a code reader and see if there are any tranny codes listed in the system, it is possible that you could have a bad solenoid pack inside the trans.
i though it would have something to do with transfer case because it goes into gear but it like its is in no gear
drive shaft not even turning
If you put it in Drive then into Park do you hear a chatter noise?
no noise and its a 5speed stick no noise at all
No noise at all, then it sounds like your clutch is toast, most likely the lining has crystallized and fallen off the plate itself, slip underneath and pull off the inspection cover, watch out for falling clutch pieces.
Do you have the electronic transfer case?
