Had a new clutch installed in my 2001 Ranger last summer and it's been running great. Til this morning: back in eastern Michigan, it gets cold. Frost and snow on the truck. It started right up, revved into reverse like it was a new clutch, then sat and idled in the middle of
the street, refusing to go into any gear. No grinding, no noise, but the stick wouldn't engage in any gear. After about a minute, I guess it warmed up and slipped easily into first and we were off. No problems since.
Is this "normal"? Can't afford to replace ANYTHING else on this truck! Sick of winter.
