1992 Ford Ranger V6 Two Wheel Drive Manual 178000 miles

Been having trouble getting truck in gear. Sometimes had to pump the clutch to get in gear. Making lots of grinding noise. Clutch fluids get low, but now gets empty. Cannot get it in gear at all now. Put fluid in it this morning. Ran good.7 hours later, fluids still good, but wont get in gear at all. Had to push it!
Had a guy look at it. Says mabey its the slave cylinder? It has a 4.0 L. This truck runs like a dream, until now. Please help. Could the slave cylinder be bad or the entire clutch system?

Hi there,

The clutch hydraulic system has developed a leak, either the master cylinder or more commonly the slave cylinder. With the amount of fluid loss it will not be hard to see what is leaking, replace faulty component and bleed system to restore your clutch to like new.

Yes it is either the slave cylinder, or the master cylinder for the slave cylinder. Look under the dash at the clutch linkage. If there is fluid there or on the master uner the dash or look under the truck should be a inspection cover, rubbercover. With engine off check to see if there is fluid inside of trans at the cover. Should be pretty obvius if show will need slave cylinder.
