Having problems with your 1992 Ford Explorer ?
Explorer Manual Transmissions
\015 My 92 Ford Explorer XLT has the five-speed manual transmission. The vehicle\015\012 has 43,000 miles on it and the transmission has melted down entirely. All\015\012 service has been done as prescribed, fluid levels checked and topped every\015\012 2500-3000 miles. The dealer tells me that the transmission has a thin\015\012 rubber "tower seal" that has a tendency to dry out (particularly in our\015\012 Colorado climate) resulting in the sudden and catastrophic loss of fluid.\015\012 If you are driving at the time (as I was on I-70 into the mountains), the\015\012 result is total destruction of the transmission.\015\012\015\012I have two questions:\015\012\015\0121) has anyone else with a Ford Explorer had a similar experience or any\015\012 other problem with the manual transmission?\015\012\015\0122) are there any other newsgroups or sites that discuss these issues?\015\012\015\012I am considering initiating a class action or taking other legal steps\015\012 against Ford for defective design of the manual transmission. If you are\015\012 interested or know of others who have had problems, please email me at\015\012\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015\012\015\012Brian Stockmar\015\012 Denver, Colorado\015\012i have a 93 just replaced the trany because it had no 1st or rev. put a junkyard tranny in it and it worked for 50ft now it has no rev could this be a t-case problem its not the clutch plate\015
You should contact Ford before thinking to start a class action, did you do that?
Brian consult the service manage and request that the area rep for ford become involved... i'll check and see if there are any TSB's on that transmission
