Default 94 Ranger manual transmission ticking

I have a 94 Ranger. It is 4X4, 5 speed manual transmission and has the 4 cylinder engine. I have looked at other threads with problems something like mine, but would like to get a good idea of the problem before i decide to spend money on it. First of all, the transmission fluid was changed late last year, and is full right now. I am getting a somewhat loud ticking noise from the transmission while driving. It happens in every gear except fourth. I can even hear it in reverse. This just started a couple days ago. I drove it home from work like this and parked it. The ticking noise will go away when the clutch is pressed down. From my research I am thinking it is the transmission going bad, but have also read it could be clutch related. Since I don't know anything about transmissions, maybe someone on here could give me some advice.

I also have a '94 ranger that is a 5-speed manual transmission. It has started ticking today just as you have described. I also unsure of the problem. I know that your post was from a year ago so I'm assuming you have fixed your truck. What ended up being the problem and how much did it cost you to fix it?

I have a 93 Ranger 4.0, 5 Speed that started ticking like the origional post. Already had to pull and replace the third gear synchro and pilot bearing about a year ago, hoping this isn't serious and/ or expensive.

Sound like nothing more than the U-joints giving you a heads-up to replace them. Place the truck on jack stands and check for any play. Could be the front driveshaft as well so check both...

Found my issue. Ticking/ rattling sound in all gears except 4th....

Cluster gear Shed some teeth. Lovely. Had to replace the input shaft, input shaft bearing, and the cluster shaft. About 300 in parts.
