Trans Trouble

1993 4.0 5-Spd 2wd.

When you some to a stop, and the clutch is in and you are in first gear, when you go to put the trans in neutral, there is resistance almost as if you have the clutch partially out, the shifter "pops" out of first when you pull hard on it.

i have replaced the clutch, slave cylinder, clutch master clynder and trans fluid and it is still the same. the clutch is disengaging fully because when it is having these symptoms i can jack up the rear of the truck and the rear wheels do not move and i can turn the driveshaft forward or backward when someone is in the truck with the clutch in.

any ideas?

mine had cheap murrays atf fluid in it before i switched to synchromesh.

i think that might have had something todo with it.


its worth a shot, my guess is the syncros are sticking.

Factory recomends that you change it a 60k. it's comming up on mine and I'm gonna use either Aamsoil or Royal Purple. With something like that, cost is not object, as it is a long term mainantence, and the life of your tranny depends on it.

there was not alot of metal on the magnet. i didnt neglect this truck johnbaum13, i changed the fluid the day i brought it home. i changed it in my 98 ranger at 148k for the first time when i got it and it wasnt as dirty as my dads 93. ill keep changing it and see if it gets better. it sure beats taking the trans out again to look inside

Try bleeding the slave again. Maurice's Bronco II was like that and the more we blead it the better it got.

I didnt try the synchromesh because when i have the truck in the air, the rear wheels slowly turn, leading me to beleive it isnt in the trans, but in the clutch

its simple, there is air in the clutch line, they all do it if u dont bleed the holy **** out of it, ive gone through 2 quarts of brake fluid beelding in the past to get ALL the air out of my clutch, because of the design of the master while it is on the truck it is near impossible to remove all air from the system

ive bled about a gallon through it with the truck nose up, so the master is level, and still no luck. im gonna replace the hydraulic like bc it may be sucking in air with the original o rings on it

when you replaced the clutch did you have the flywheel machined?
if so did you install a shim between the flywheel and the crankshaft?

if you didn't then thats your problem, the clutch is not fully disengaging
