88 Ranger cluncking at tranny!

Where the tranny bellhousing meets up with the engine is making a clunking sound. It only happens when Ive been driving for a long time or the engien gets really hot, there is also an engien oil leak coming from the top of the tranny and coming down. Now I think that the clunking has to do with that but I dont know. Either way it has something to do with the drive train, the trucks engien is in great shape, (91,000 mi) but its had 5 different driver since 1988 so its something with the oil leak and drive train. Help is needed!!!

88 2.0L 5 speed standard.

didnt u say just a while ago a shop changed out your clutch? clanking could be loose bolts.... oil leak could be from sumthign or another they had to disconnect to get the job done, or its a good sign of shitty work, or it just started leaking, or they messed sumthign else up.....

ok the oil leak sounds like the rear main seal is out and the clunking could be your ring gear in the rear axle eventhough it sounds like it coming from the bell housing it maybe coming from elsewhere

The oil pan gasket can also leak in the rear and look like a seal leak.

Re: 88 Ranger cluncking at tranny!

Thanx for the input guys, actually I had them check the clutch and they said it was fine. I am planning on calling the shop this week and asking them how much it will be to drop the tranny so they can find whats wrong. The ring gear cant be the case cuz Ide hear it from the rear of the truck, no the sound is right where the tranny meats the engien. I checked the differentail when I changed the fluid about a year ago and nothing in it is ****ed up. More input is always help full.

again if they just changed out the clutch, and it was not leaking before,and now it is leaking from inside/outside the trans, and if its clanking but wasent before, you should not have to pay a pennie to fix the problem .
