94 Ranger XLT 5 speed stuck in 4th gear....
I have a 94 Ranger with the 2.3 and 5 speed that is stuck in 4th gear. I bought the truck new in 94 and it now has 305,800 trouble free miles until a couple of days ago when I tried to down shift out of 4th gear and I could NOT budge it. I limped it home but now need to get it repaired. The fluid has been regularly changed. I had the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and the flywheel resurfaced about 4 months ago with no problems until this. Everything else on the truck is all original. The clutch works i.e. it disengages when you press the peddle.
My questions are;
Should I rebuild the trans?
Find a used one at a salvage yard? If so, what years will interchange with my truck?
What else could cause it to stick in gear?
Need truck for work as I really don't want to keep riding my motorcycle in the rain.
Thanks in advance.
