HiCustomer

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

The clutch on you 1996 Ranger is not adjustable. Its considered a self adjusting clutch.

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

Is he just having a problem with First gear?

 

Does it shift thru the other gears ok?

Yes

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

If it shifts ok in all other gears, its not likely a clutch issue, I would suspect you have a synchronizer issue with first gear and this is an internal transmission concern.

Does this sound like a major cost problem or minor?
Expert:  Ron replied 7 years ago.
If its in the trans and I suspect it is it could be considered a major cost as the trans will need to be removed and at a minimum , a tear down need to determine what the fault is. Trans removal calls for 5.6 hours on your 1996 plus tear down which is usually another 1.5 to 2 hours of labor.
