Manual Transmission questions
Hey there, I'm going to imagine that this will be a long winded post but I do appreciate your patience. I just acquired this truck for my dad to beat around in and I'm having an issue with the transmission coming out of 4th, and sometimes it won't go into any gear but reverse. Here's a background on what I know.
I have a 93 ranger 2x4 with the 3.0 v6 and a 5 speed. The guy I got the truck off of said he put the wrong fluid in (syncromesh) and then put in transmission fluid after driving it for a while and beginning to notice the shifting becoming more difficult.
I'm assuming there is internal damage in the tranny, as it is difficult to get it into gear when at a stand still or moving.
With all this said, the quick disconnect line has just popped off, so Im wondering if this could be the issue (what I believe to be wishful thinking )
Secondly, I've found a 3.0 2x4 5 speed transmission out of a 96. I'm aware they have an electronic vss after 94... can I swap my tailshaft housing so it will accept the manual cable and is the gear drive still there?
Also is there any other differences I should be aware of?
