My first post!
2010 Ford Ranger sport 4x4 4L standard
About 6 months ago I started having a hard time shifting into first gear while at a stop. Its like the shifter hits a wall and I have to apply hard force to get into gear. Eventually this issue got worst and shifting from first into second began giving my the same issue. Its not all the time but some days seem worst then others.
I’ve been to a couple mechanics about the issue.
The first shop replaced clutch pressure plate, slave cylinder, flywheel and pilot bearing.
This seems to have helped a bit but issue remains. I went back to this shop they pressure bleed the slave but told me it must be my Synchros.
I went to a Ford dealership for a second opinion. And they think that the clutch is not always releasing but with out dropping the transmission they could not be certain. They told me it was not the synchros. They also bleed the slave and checked for proper function.
I’ve been back to the first shop after the dealership for them to look over there work and I was gaslighted the owner told me that him and his transmission guy drove the car and they did not notice any issue. I even replicated the issue infront of him.
I’m not looking for advice on what to do about the mechanic.
I’m hoping someone reading this has had this issue and now the fix. Thanks for reading this far!
