Default Ranger 5 spd

Ive got a 93 ranger 4x4 5 spd. It shutters really bad in 4th and 5th gear. It not a speed related thing either. It does it wheter i shift a 25 or 55.

Shudders? The whole truck or the shifter? My 96 has had a vibration in the shifter in 5th ever since I turned 100k. Now I have 207k and the trans still runs fine...

Define shutter......your post says something about 25 - that's way way way soon to be in 4th gear.....my trans sounds as if it's being lugged when I shift and RPM's fall below 1200....because, well, it is being lugged.....

Just for fun, check your tranny fluid...I don't know what trans you have, but if you've got a 4.0 motor you should have the m5od.....it likes to leak fluid from the top shift rail plugs (can replace them with metal ones), but only while your driving so you'll never see a puddle.....that's typically how most these transmissions burn up

a shudder would mean your shifting too early.

I know how to drive a stick, ive been driving one since i was 17. The reason i tried shifting into 4th at 25, was to see if it was speed related, or if it was gear related. It likes to stall out if i dont rev it real good on take off, and it running like ass, so im thinking if i get it running better it might go away. O, and by shudder im mean a death shake.

Well that's lovely that you know how to drive a stick, but when you make a vauge post like you did, your going to get posts like that.....

As stated previously, the manual's in the rangers "shudder" when they're below roughly 1500 rpm - most people wouldn't think that being in a gear below 1500 rpm (with the engine under load) is a problem, which is why I brought it up.

It's possible that the shudder is related to the engine running like shit, it's also possible that the clutch isn't releasing properly....

I understood what he meant. If he wouldn't have posted that, then you would have asked him if it does it in 4th at any speed or just at 55.:miff:

Yeah, I guess I was just being retarted instead of actually reading what he put down.....

If it shutters all the time, but only in 4th/5th gear, I'd say somethings wrong with the trans internally......if it only did it in 4th, i'd say the mainshaft, but since it does it in 5th its hard to determine whether it's the counter or main shaft.....does it seem to be engine load related?

Actually it did a tune up and it basically went away, i think. I only took it around the block once, but it didn't seem to do it anymore.
