Today I fully lost reverse now that being fully mechanical gave me some worries. After sitting in traffic for an hour and a half I got to work and my truck was puking ATF out of the tranny over flow. My diagnosis has lead me to believe that the radiator has cracked and coolant found it's way into the transmission. Either way I have to rebuild it before anything else happens. I now know why the original trans failed and now this one. I will post a pic in a little bit

I think the problem is you, not the truck. You can't have this many issues on so many different parts that have nothing to do with each other on such a new truck.

Bypass the tranny lines going into the radiator and install a big tranny cooler to prevent this from happening again.

Well, dibs on anything good if you dont get another Ranger.

Sucks to see you having problems with your truck. Best of luck with whatever you get next.

i was looking at a used legacy GT 6 speed. 30k $19,999 now that aint bad.

Yea i was super easy on it and somehow broke something just my luck. Nothing ever ever ever went wrong with my subaru. My mother has a 2011 Outback 3.6R, my sister has a 2.5i Impreza and my father has a E350 4Matic Benz never any issues with either of them. I have driven them also and hard to never a single issue. I dont even beat on my truck and it breaks now like wtf
