Clutch dead twice in one year?
I have a 93 ranger xlt. Very basic but gets between 18 and 33mpg depending on summer or winter. I owe it to the clutch and transmission gearing. In January, I had put on 11,000 miles and the clutch went out. It was soft, it wouldn't shift into gear, and Reverse would grind. We replaced the master and slave cylinders, throwout bearing, hydraulic lines & fluid, and the friction plate (it was in the package) and 2000 miles later the gears dont want to shift and the reverse is grinding again.
Can anyone explain why this happened so quickly? I don't beat on it, i hardly ever make it above 4000 rpm. I shift at the bottom of the next gear. There shouldnt be leaks or air bubbles entering the system. If I bleed both cylinders, will the problem come back? I apologize for my naivety, I'm 18 and have only owned one vehicle. Can pushing the clutch too hard or not pushing it enough slowly cause a leak?
