im not sure where to post this so ill start here. i finally got my ranger on the road, while driving down my street, ive noticed a clicking type noise. when i push the clutch in, it goes away and while in reverse theres no clicking. what could it be?? the truck was in 2wd. i have yet to try it in 4wd..

I was gonna say a ujoint till u say it goes away when u put the clutch in. Hmm maybe someone else has a idea.

I'd guess it's something in the clutch. Bad throw out bearing maybe. Does it do it in all gears?

havent gone past second gear, it does it in first n second, not in reverse tho..

I had a pilot bearing (?) end of crank & front transmission shaft bearing break into pieces. One of them fell into the clutch & rattled around. When I put the clutch in, the pressure plate would bind up the piece & the rattle stopped. It's a longshot, but if all else fails....

i bought it last fall, before i bought it , it sat for 5 yrs, so i think ima replace all the clutch stuff , if i gotta do a bearing anyways..

took it for a drive today, went through all the gears, it clicks in all the gears, i put it in neutral or the clutch is in , no noise. i can feel it in the shifter. it almost sounds and feels like gears arent meshed right, if thats possible. gonna drain and refill the fluid this weekend.
