Ford Ranger: My not shifting into gears, if forced into gear

Resolved Question:

My 1999 Manual Ford Ranger is not shifting into gears, if forced into gear it will go but I try not to force it into any gear. What can be the issue? It will go into gears perfectly if the car is off.

In most cases the problem you are describing is caused by the clutch slave cylinder failing as stated in the last question you posted. In order to replace the slave you will need to remove the transmission and if your going to do this amount of work you should also consider replace the clutch and pressure plate.
