I have a 92 Ranger 4.0L 4X4 with 196K on it.
I have started to notice what feels like slipping from the trans.
Also, it does'nt drop into 1st when I come to a stop. And I heard a "Rattle"(Metal clang, Like a BB in a Dryer) from the bell housing, it happened for about 3 sec. and went away,never herd it again.
I have never had the transmission torn apart farther than replacing the filter. Never had it flushed or had it too hot.
I have all the Dealer books for rebuilding the transmission so doing it is not a problem.
Has anyone done this rebuild,had trouble with this tranny, ad troubles with this rebuild.
Also, Where is the best place to buy a rebuild kit.

Just had the one done in my 92 Explorer 140,000. The previous owner had punished it by pulling a 28' boat for 5 years. I bought it at 120,000 and it lasted til now. When they did the rebuild the only thing that was usable was the gears. I found that it is costly to rebuild about $1400.00. The trans shop said even though it's not a heavy trans it is a good one.
