    I finished swapping out engine from a donor truck in my 99 ranger 3.0 v6. Same motor swap but I had to put in throw out bearing to fit my manual 5 speed. Now I have no clutch at all. When started, it will not shift into or out of any gear. You can put it into a gear when not started, start it up and have that gear but it will not come out. Any ideas?:confused:

    Was the donor engine an auto or manual tranny.?
    If it was auto, did you install a pilot bushing?
    Sounds like you need to bleed the hydraulic clutch system. How does the pedal feel?

    It came from auto but I did install the pilot bearing. My uncle and I blead the clutch system for over and hour. Still nothing.

    before the swap the pedal felt like a spring was attached, now there is no resistance at all on the pedal.
