Default 1992 Ranger Transmission Problems..

Well I'm 17 and finally got my liscense and said to myself, hell I'll be smart and build my first vehicle! I replaced 80% of the body on a a 1992 Ford Ranger, and a lot of engine parts... then..

Well... $$$ in debt and this is where I stand..

I had the truck for a bit now running it back and forth from garage to garage, and it seemed to work fine.

But then the transmission start acting up, popping HARD when shift from P. After awhile I noticed it shifting late and the motor reving too high.. Then one day there was a massive pile of red transmission fluid everywhere underneath the truck.. Now it will not shift out of neutral.

I havn't had the time to check it out on the lift yet, but I am afraid I broke a line, or something..

I have a couple questions I am afraid about..

-What happens when you transmission runs out of fluid?
-What are the chances I damaged something?
-If a replacement is my only option.. What year trannys would fit a 92' custom? That one I'm scared to ask.. :P

Thanks a lot

first off you may of just been low on fuild. that will cause it the get hot and the melt together. fix you line(a pain to get to but easy to do) fill with fuild and see how it is. you may of melted the clutch packs together. i have a tranny I jst did I would sell for $600 but I am sure the shipping would be costly. you can get your tranny rebuilt for $1200
