#1 of 292 94 automatic shifts too easy, too often
Jul 01, 2006 (6:35 pm)
I use a quart every 1000 miles or so. Leak is from front of tranny. Shifting happens too easy and too often. Anything to try rather than a tranny rebuild?

#3 of 292 93 ford ranger white smoke on start ups/ loss of trany fluid
Nov 14, 2006 (8:16 am)
I have a 93 ford ranger 4.0 2wd . White smoke appears on start up then goes away, and the trany fluid has been disappearing, I have to put in about 1 qt a month. Someone told me it may be a faulty vacum modulator valve, but Its in a tough spot to change. Could it be plugged instead or will that create more problems. What else can I do, I plan on getting rid of the truck soon so I dont want to spend a lot of money on repairs.

Vacumn modulator valve.
Why won't you replace it? You've already been told...
The transmission also shift roughly, right?

The vacumn modulator valve is an intergral part of making the transmission shift, especially shift smoothly.
On my 4Liter Ranger, it was right above the cat converter, I think. It is tough to see, but these are usually held on with one bolt, so you should be able to get a socket on it. It really shouldn't be that difficult to remove.
#7 of 292 Clunking noise coming from rear of truck
Dec 06, 2006 (5:45 pm)
I have a 2003 Ranger and there's a clunking noise coming from the rear of the truck when I'm in 4x4. We got the truck up in the air and the sound only occured when the truck was in gear and the wheels were moving and I also had my foot on the brake. It seems to be coming from the rear transfer case or some sort of harmonic balancer in the back. Anybody got any thoughts on what it could be? Drivetrain...

Anyone know how to drain trans fluid? I see no drain plug.

Remove the pan.
Have a BIG catch container. When the last bolts come loose, and the pan drops down, the fluid will start coming out all around the pan.
