Welcome to Hotrodders dot com

We need more information:

Engine size of Ranger truck? Year of manufacture of truck? This is an Automatic transmission?

Mileage on the transmission?

The truck does not move forward or backwards?

Was this failure sudden or did the truck show signs of troubles prior to failure?

Thanks for your time spent responding to my enquiry.

1. The truck moves very sluggish in both forward and reverse direction when revved high. It sometimes engages well and fail at other times
2. The engine size I guess is a 2.2L
3. Year of manufacture is 1999.
4. It showed signs before failing.
5. The mileage to date is 141444.

Best regards.

Aigbedo Moses.

You still did not tell us whether the transmission is an automatic or a standard.

However, the signs you give indicate it is probably an automatic.

Check your fluid level. If your fluid level is low, the transmission will operate weirdly.

Does the fluid smell burnt? If so, your clutches are burnt and you need to rebuild the transmission.

Unless your unburnt-smelling fluid level is low, and topping it off solves the problem, you need to fix or replace your transmission. Continuing to drive it in that condition will only make things worse, possibly much worse.

if Automatic Transmission it sounds like low fluid to me as well. If the fluid is low, find the leak and repair it. Use the correct fluid for the truck and cross your fingers. If you have run it low for a while you may have damaged the transmission.
If it is a manual transmission, it sounds like a worn out clutch.

Auto transmission malfunction

To BEC and mmerlinn I want to say thanks.
The fault or damage may have actually resulted because the mechanic we are using really did not know how to go about resolving the problem which he introduced after my wife complained of transmission fluid leakages.
The pipe used to replace the leaky one was then not as durable as the one replaced and so the car was driven for some time with the fluid leaks not properly fixed. That in a nutshell could have resulted in damaging the gear transmission system.
Thanks Joyce again to both of you for your time and advice.
