It is seem that I can't get away from the Rangers. My first was a 94 XLT 5speed extra cab, 2wd. Does the the clutch myself a couple of times and finally gave it to my little brother who ended up trashing it. My second was 2000XLT 4x4 5speed 4doors, still have it. Been threw hell and back with this truck. Seem like the clutch system plagued the Ford Ranger. Did the clutch on it several time and got a brand new factory motor installed( can't resist discontinued motor from Ford). A few. years later the transmission took a dive and had it rebuilt (MAZDA ). Found out that the guy that I hired to install the engine doesn't replace pilot bearing, so had to get creative and install bushing instead of pilot bearing. Replaced the radiator with all aluminum. Driveline, replaced with new u-joints (just because). So, when come to the Ranger. I kinda know my way around a lil.
