2nd Gear issue
So its seems that everyone has different issues with shifting, so here is my issue. I have 1998 Ranger 3.0 Manual Trans. While im driving and i try to shift into the 2nd gear its hard to get it to gear. I have to wiggle or put it into neutral then into second with some force and it will go in. Once into second I dont have any issues. While my truck is parked I can shift into each gear no issues. I dont know if my truck has had a new clutch or not but it has 170k miles on it. I also tried the old trick of starting off from a dead stop in second to see if the clutch is slipping and no issues.
Also would the transmission /clutch be the same from a 2000 3.0 Ford Ranger? I wrecked mine last week in the snow and bought the one im currently driving (both trucks are 3.0's and manuals transmissions) Thanks =)
