This is my first post!
I have 95 ranger v6 3.0L with a manual transmission. ...with 100k miles
Anyway, a little while back I heard a squealing noise when the clutch petal was pressed down at a stop. It sounded pretty bad. :shok: After about 6 or so times of that it went away!
Later on it started having a new problem. ;eek5; Now, it won't go into gear (sometimes) if the truck isn't moving. It seems to have more of a problem when it's cold.
I checked the clutch fluid in the reservoir and it was very low (not dirty). So, I filled it up and it seemed to help a little, but the problem came back right away.
Solutions .... I've read for about 3 hrs now on what it could be. Here is what I thought I should do:
Throw-out Bearing and Slave Cylinder may have failed
1.Try to bleed the clutch slave cylinder
2. The slave cylinder is about
3. Replace the clutch
1. Did a seal in the slave cylinder break, which caused the throw-out bearing to go out?
(I don't know how it all works.. I need a diagram or something)
2. If I buy a new clutch, does it come with a throw-out bearing?
(my clutch seems fine but it has been 100k miles)
3. Does my solution sound right?
(I've just learned this...)
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! for your time and kindness!
