I'm no mechanic and I'm stuck.

I've got a 1996 2.3L Ford Ranger. I replaced The clutch disk, pressure plate, pilot bearing, and release bearing. I then got the transmission put back into place. Once I attached the shifter knob I noticed that I can't put the transmission into any gear with the engine off. I then attached the slave cylinder and attempted to engage the clutch and shift. Still no avail. If I depress the clutch it is firm and if and look through the dust cover underneath I can see that the bearing is moving about an inch or so.

Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!

  • Can you go through the gears with the engine running? – race fever Apr 30 '16 at 21:45
  • You might need to bleed the slave cylinder. – Moab Apr 30 '16 at 23:39
  • @Moab - How would bleeding the hydraulics make any difference if the transmission won't go into gear without the engine running? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 May 1 '16 at 2:55

    I figured it out. I had has taken the shifter out while it was in gear. I took a flat head and put the transmission into neutral. Problem shoved. Thanks everyone! – Matthew.Paul.P May 1 '16 at 3:15

    Best thing it to just answer your own question here in the box below. Include photos's if you have them. That really helps anybody else who may have a similiar problem in the future. Nice work on figuring this out. – zipzit May 1 '16 at 4:24
