Default Tick,Tick,Tick'n like a diesel......

My '93 Ranger has always sounded like a diesel,unless I push clutch in. Now she grinds when I downshift into 3rd,even if I'm dog'n it,no matter how fast I'm going!! Has anyone ran into THIS one yet??

If its a rattling noise that goes away like you describe when you puch the clutch in, it may be a throw out bearing in there that went bad. I had a chevy that did that and thats all it was. I'm not 100% thats what your problem is but I had the same noise with the chevy
