My F-150 Ford Truck (1998 Model) lost compression, idled rough intermittently, jerked vigorously especially when on reverse and soaked plugs with oil. It took my mechanic 3 hours to painstakingly bring down the very massive gearbox to replace the clutch plate. Now, the gear makes a loud noise and won’t engage after dismantling and reassembling over and over. What should we do for the gears to engage smoothly before we attend to the other problems?

Did you replace the disc and bearing as well?

Is it hydraulic?

Bad move. You should have done all 3, disc, pressure plate and throwout bearing.
