#2740 of 2995 Clutch Problem
Jan 17, 2009 (5:28 pm)
I have a 2001 Ranger 5 speed. Several months ago I had the clutch master cylinder replaced with an O'Reilly part because I could hardly move the gear shift. It worked for a couple of months but then the same thing happened. The mechanic said I should put a Ford part in which we did. It worked for about 1 month and now it is again hard to move the shifter. A friend told me that there is another clutch cylinder on the transmission. Any suggestions? Thanks

Did you replace the pressure plate with the clutch, or just the clutch disc itself ? The pressure plate could be your problem not the clutch disc. Another possibility is the slave cylinder and throw out bearing.
This should have been changed when the clutch was changed as you have access to it all while the tranny is out. And yet another is that you have air in the hydraulic line and nothing is wrong with anything. I would start with bleeding the clutch line if thats not it go to the slave cylinder next and so on.
Good luck & let us know how you do.

The clutch disc was not replaced, only the master cylinder - twice. The last time it was replaced I was told that there was air in the system. At the moment it is working fine. I suspect the air entered the system during the first master cylinder change. We'll see how it goes.

My 95 Ranger XLT has had a few start/run problems. After getting it running i had it checked and found the Crank Position Sensor was bad. Replaced the sensor and ran fine for a few days then started it one morning...engine shut down about a minute later and now all i can get it to do is crank over. Seems like it's not getting spark. Thought of a fuel problem and tried starting fluid with no luck. Any suggestions on what might be wrong. Also this is the Distributorless model with no Ignition Control Module of the Ranger XLT.
P.S. Also changed the Coil Pack with still no starting results.

Bad plug wires and/or plugs?
At about 6 years and only about 45,000 miles on my 94 I noticed 'static' on the FM radio. Changing to AM, there was even more static. Although the plugs are supposed to last what, 100,000 miles, I went ahead and changed them with the wires. Took one wire and plug out and then replaced both. No chance of messing this up. This cured my 'static'. If there is static, you are loosing voltage to ground instead of firing the plug.

I have a 95 ford ranger 5 speed. A while back , it started making a noise which I thought was wheel bearings. or brakes rubbing. I just changedthe wheel bearings , and still have the noise. Checked the new brakes, rear end fliuds , trans fluid. I jacked the rear of the truck up and put it in gear. I heard the noise. WHen I am on the road , I can push in the clutch and the noise is still there, driving in gear , still there . Does it sound like a clutch problem , or a trans problem? Other than the noise, it shifts nice.

#2749 of 2995 Ranger Clutch
Mar 13, 2009 (3:45 pm)
I have a '01 Ranger 6 Cyl std with 77K miles. Several months ago the gear shifter became really hard to move. If I pumped the clutch it helped a bit. The clutch master has been changed 3 times. It worked OK for about 3 weeks and then the same problem recurred. Last week they changed the slave cylinder but there was no sign that there was leakage or that the slave was the problem. i think that the problem will come back. Any suggestions as to what to do? Thanks
