I have a 95 ranger 3.0 6 cylinder 5 speed single cab. I took the tranny out and back in 5 times now and I can't figure out why I can't put it in gear. Please help.

First, let me be the first to welcome you to F-R.
Next, did you try to shift the trans with it out of the truck?
Will it shift with the engine not running?.
Did you replace the clutch & now you have this problem only since you replaced the clutch, or did you have the problem before you replaced the clutch?

Welcome 95 ranger, glad you joined!
As Mike69 was saying, we need a little more info to be able to help. First would be the reason you pulled the trans in the first place, might be tied in with the end problem.

Congrats on being able to remove and replace a transmission :)

Sorry about the last post I thought I included everything. I pulled the trans out to do a clutch replacement I just got it bled but my clutch still has too much play.

So if I am understanding you correctly the problem has only been since you replaced the clutch, or is that why you pulled the trans to replace the clutch because of a shifting problem?. Did you compare the old clutch assembly to the new clutch assembly?. With both clutch assemblies laying on a flat surface did you check that the height is the same for both clutch assemblies?. Did you compare the old release bearing to the new one or did you not replace it?.

With a new clutch and new hydraulics if you cannot get the clutch to work you likely have a trapped air bubble

If this is the case let us know, we can help and it has been discussed already here on FordRangers.com
