Hard shift 5 speed
I picked up a 95 2.3L 5 speed ranger over the winter and one of the things I noticed right away was the gear shift in the truck. I find sometimes it won't go into gear, any gear at all. If I try to put it in gear, it acts like theres no gear there haha, its like hitting a brick wall. On other cars I've owned this could be caused by a misaligned shift, is this common to rangers as well? I don't know how their shifting mechanism is set up. The clutch itself definitely doesn't have much bite left on it but I've never seen a worn out clutch make the trans feel as if there isn't a gear to be found, usually just grinds. The trans doesn't grind at all, just can't find a gear with it. If I let it roll forward a tiny bit it'll go into gear no problem. I'm going to change the gear oil soon and see if that helps any, the clutch fluid reservoir is topped up too. I also considered a bad transmission mount?
