Clutch or trans?
I have a 97 ranger with manual trans. Today the clutch started feeling really weird, like it wouldn't go in all the way and didn't seem to come out all the way either, as well as seeming to give a little more resistance when pushing in and letting it lose.
Several minutes after that I came to a stop and when I went into first and let go of the clutch and revved the engine, it was barely moving. Luckily I was just a couple hundred feet from my apartment and I got there ok but this has never happend before.
I'd rather not take it in anywhere because I don't trust mechanics (no offense to anyone) and also like to take care of things on my own, learning in the process; so I came here. So is my clutch bad? Maybe just need to bleed it? or possible transmission issue?
EDIT:Ok, after thinking about it a little and since I can get into gear ok and release the clutch, and just get no power is it possible that its the flywheel or clutch disk (I think thats what they're called, the disks that rub together to create the friction needed for movement)?
