If I were you, I wouldn't mess around getting stranded. I'd get it to a reliable tranmission shop. It may not necessarily mean a new transmission, but you need reliable transportation.

#148 of 292 funny noise
Dec 20, 2008 (5:42 pm)
About 2 months ago I started noticing a noise/vibration coming from under truck. IT would speed up with engine rpm and go away at about 10-15 mph. About a month ago i notice it was leaking transmission fluid. It has now got to the point that lose about 2 quarts for every 50 miles. I thought it might be a cracked flex plate. Pulled the motor today. flex plate is not cracked, but at two of the torque converter bolt holes you can see the flex plate is ground down and shiny. is it possible that the torque converter is shot? anyone know how to test a torque converter?
99 Ranger 3.0 flex fuel 4 speed overdrive trans.

No lights came on at all accept for the o/d off light that flashes. someone on here told me it might be a melted servo in the transmission because ford put the exhaust too close to the transmission. they said that thats what the shop told them was causing their truck to have the same problem.

I have a 1998 Ranger with a manual (with overdrive) transmission. I recently put in a new clutch, but apparently, when I started work I left the vehicle in reverse and removed the shifter. The clutch works. I can start the truck, but can't get it out of reverse. I've removed the shift lever and played around with the tabs down inside the hole where the shift lever inserts, but I can't seem to get any of the tabs to move in a way that I can reinstall the shifter and get it into neutral. Anyone else have this problem? Solutions?
#151 of 292 Transmission (?) Whine
Dec 28, 2008 (8:13 pm)
I have a 1996 Ranger with about 178k miles on it. I don't drive on the interstate much and just recently noticed a whine in 5th gear on a recent trip into Tampa (about 1 hr drive). I drove into Tampa with no problems, but on the way back, I started noticing this whine while driving about 65 MPH. It stops when I take my foot off the gas or drop to 4th gear.
I noticed tonight that it was starting to whine in the lower gears as well. The fluid levels seem to be fine. Any ideas?
