Ford F-150 Manual Transmission

All,

I own a 2003 Ford F-150 with a 4.2L V6 and 5 speed manual transmission. I just had a new slave, master, clutch, pressure plate, etc. replaced last week. Aside from getting used to the timing (clutch engagement with respect to clutch pedal angle), everything seems to be working pretty well...until this afternoon.

I came to a stoplight and put the truck into neutral. When the light turned green, I could not shift into 1st gear. I tried 2nd gear, reverse, and then back to 1st. I tried to rock the truck a bit back and forth. I finally put gentle but constant pressure on the shifter and finally slipped it into 1st. I had the same problem for the rest of the day.

Is something out of adjustment? What changed? The clutch fluid is topped off. Does the system need to be re-bled?

Thanks in advance.

I'd phone the shop where you had the work done to see what they say, or better yet, drop by for them to take a look. New transmissions can be tight for the first while (think break-in), still, you shouldn't have to fight to get it in gear.

Sounds like the system need to be bled.

Re: Ford F-150 Manual Transmission

that could be the throw out bearing.its a hyrdrolic assembly with the throw out bearing slid down on the spring,mine went out on my 99 and it wouldnt go into gear or shift in gear at all with truck running.usually when you buy the kit with the clutch and pressure plate, the throw out bearing is in the box as well.but that could be one possibility.it could have got air in it as well though.id take it back to the shop where you had it fixed and ask questions.maybe that will help.

ok, if they put a new throw out bearing in you could also have the hydrolic assembly that holds it leaking or broke.its called a perfection cylinder at advanced auto parts.runs about 50 bucks.that with the assembly and throw out bearing assembly all in one.in case you needed to know the name and price range.good luck with the truck
