3Rd gear gring??? Help please
okay, well here is the story, i am pretty knowledgeable about cars and trucks as i am a ase master tech and work on trucks all day long, fords to be exact, here is my problem, i know every car has its quarks or what have you, i have just bought a 98 ranger with a 4 cyl and a manual trans, the old guy that i bought it from told me that its done this since it was fairly new and he took it in and ford just told him that there is nothing they could do and shift slower so basically here is the description,
if im driving and i shift into 3rd kinda fast it just gives me a little synchro buzz only when i upshift hardly ever when i down shift, and the hotter or longer i drive the truck the more prominent it is,
here is my question, do i dump the old atf and exchange with new fluid, or just leave it and drive it becasue i dont know if the fluid is the original or not, im assuming its not as they just did a clutch last year, but like i said i dont know what shade tree mechanic did the work,
any help, info would be great thanks guys.
