2000 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 35000 miles
When I put the truck in any gear, from neutral or park, I hear a short creak/grind sound coming from the rear of the drivetrain. Also, on the freeway there is a subtle surging effect that I can feel. There was a day about 2 months ago that I went to put it in reverse and it would not engage in any gear for about 5 minutes when it slammed into gear and has worked fine until yesterday on the freeway when I noticed the surging. I then had help to listen to the creak sound. We have a slight incline to our driveway that is enough to roll a car down very easily, we have been parking the truck on the incline with the parking brake on, and front of the truck pointing up the slope. Is this a bad thing? Will it cause damage to gears?
have the same problem?
