I have a 93 rwd manual transmission ranger that makes
a vibration/rattling sound in the clutch or
transmission when it is cold out. The more gas I give
it the worse it is. I know it is nothing in the
engine, because i revved the motor with the clutch
pedal in and had no noise. The noise is beginning the
bother me.

Subject: FTE Small - '91 Explorer Hatch

My '91 Explorer (original owner), for the most part has been pretty flawless
still enjoy driving it although I have my eyes on the Expedition. Anyway,
last thing that I thought would give me trouble has just done that--I can't
the rear hatch open. Has this happened to anybody else? I can open the
and when I try to open the gate, I can hear the hatch releasing, but I can
assume that they are not releasing completely. I'll probably attack the
this weekend, but any insight/tips on how to tackle it, would be
The thing that puzzle's me is the only way I can remove the interior panel
with the hatch open :-O.

While I'm here, are there known problems with the early Explorer power
pump and/or gear box in terms of leaky seals? I have a leak and I believe
coming from the pump (if it were the gear box, I'm taking else where to get
fixed). Most of the fluid leaks directly onto the gear box, however, it has
squirted onto the coolant tank and the hood which makes me believe something
giving under pressure. The leak is slow, but I do have to top off the
every other month. I've also noticed that when I turn the steering wheel
side to side, I can see the power steering pulley shaft move slightly in and
out. Should it do that? Again, any information would be appreciated.

If you could, I'd appreciate if you could email me directly at either
Noah.Karl and/or Karl.Noah
