Need help identifying this clutch

So this is a strange one but we have some pretty sharp mechanics here so I'm hoping someone might be of some help. I am trying to figure out what automatic transmission this friction plate is from. I...

Re: Put all your new truck dreams temporarily aside... What if I told you

Electric cars are neat and fast, but they won't ever take over. Hydrogen is the future. Unless we can figure out how to charge a battery in less than 5 minutes that will last 200-300 miles...

Re: Brakes losing pressure

Obviously check for leaks everywhere under the truck and hood. Usually the loosing pressure and having to pump up like you described is a leaky line or more likely a bad master cylinder. What has me...

Re: Wont stay aligned after Ball joints/tie rod end replacement.

My guess would be the front springs are shot or the wheel bearings are way past gone.

Re: Fuel pump not turning on

Check all the fuses. Some are under the hood and some in the side of the dash.

I've never heard of an inertia cutoff switch getting melted so you may have wiring problems in lots of places...

Re: Sounds like a rock stuck in my tire... but no rock! Other sources?

Check to make sure there is nothing that might be touching the driveshaft. Sounds can echo around underneath a vehicle.

Re: 1st gear almost impossible while not moving

If the pilot bearing is worn to the point of having more friction than normal or "hanging up", then it would keep the input shaft spinning when the clutch is disengaged. This could cause symptoms...

Re: Catastrophic Failure, but what could it have been?

If it was a brand new 2018 model, it likely has been sitting for a little while, but I wouldn't think a year would be long enough for calipers to lock up...

Re: Catastrophic Failure, but what could it have been?

Something was defective or not put together properly. Likely something came loose inside the transmission or transfer case and caused it to lock up all 4. Could have been a malfunction in the ABS...

Re: Lose all power when trying to turn the engine over, until I disconnect the batter

Loose connection to the battery or bad ground as said above. This has happened to me exactly and the cable had rattled loose and was just sitting barely touching the terminal.

Re: 1990 4.0 4wd starting

Check the obvious first, spark plugs, wires, filters. Is the check engine light on? If so what codes?

Re: Instant intense wobble- camber off??

Just one more reason to NOT lift a truck. Put it back stock. It will be much safer and more reliable.

Re: The cause of many deaths

Brakes and steering components are the most important in any car. I have had the steering shaft come apart on the racecar. Scary as I smacked the wall!

However, I do see a lot, and I mean a whole...

Re: 2019 Ranger configurator

Well I agree that a regular cab looks much better but someone like me with long legs and arms, an extended cab is much more comfortable...plus it makes room for a big sub box

Re: 2019 Ranger configurator

I can get a WRX premium for that price. No way I'd spend that much on a truck.

Re: Ranger won't start

You can rent a compression check gauge from advance or auto zone for free. Or buy one. I think they are around $20 and very useful for small engines also.

Re: Source for Rubber bed mat

Go to a farm store and buy a horse mat. Cut it to fit and now you have a very durable and custom fit mat for less money.
