Hello, I drive a 1994 ford ranger with a manual transmission. Yesterday it only did this very briefly, and only once. However this morning on my way to work, it became a whole lot more noticeable. It feels like something is slipping. And then its sound completely changes, it doesn't even sound like my truck when it starts. And its usually around 45-50 mph, but the second time it did it at 65 mph. And it did it when I shifted from 5th to 4th gear to pass a slow driver, I was driving 55. LAST week and for a few weeks before, it had this really subtle grinding sound when I slowed down in usually first or reverse, and would do it also sometimes while I was shifting down the highway. I think that they are linked and the problem I had today is the worsening of the problem I had last week. Please help me out, what in the heck is going on here? Ive heard everything to low or bad transmission fluid, clutch, and the transmission it self.
