1989 ford f150 manual transmission problems Sign In

i have a 1989 ford f150 Lariat with a 4.9Ltr (inline 300) 4x4 with a 4 speed manual transmission, hydraulic clutch my transmission has been getting hard to shift. I blead the clutch, even though it is supposed to be a self bleeding clutch.this did not help at all, as it still was hard to shift. now it is jammed and will not shift in to any gear at all even when the truck is not running. it feels stiff to move from side to side even in neutral. does not move as free as it should. could the slave cylinder be binding the transmission ?

How does the clutch pedal feel? Is it really spongy? If you go underneath and watch the clutch fork, does it move when someone pushes down on the clutch pedal? Look at where the master bolts to the firewall from inside and make sure the firewall isn't cracked.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

? Doesn't shift or move properly with engine off! That's a clue it's NOT the clutch first but shifter or trans issues possibly from forcing it too long?
