      The Gears in my 1998 Ford Ranger 4x4 are not shifting smoothly, If at all. They are extremely hard to get into gear and Grind often. My clutch was just recently replaced so that couldn't be it.

      ANY IDEAS?

      Yes, search for "slave cylinder", and "bleed clutch" and do a little reading. :)
      Did they put a new slave in during the clutch job?

      I don't know if they did or not, I will have to look at the receipt. Thanks for the info tho. Do you have any idea how much this might cost to fix?
