My clutch started to slip the other day and how shes completely slipping, How hard is it to do a clutch on a 94 Ford ranger 4x4?

a pain in the ass because everything is jammed in there so tight you need little asian baby hands to work on it.

i had the most troubles putting the tranny back in because the body is molded so tightly around the transmission. i had to eventually call a friend and get him to hold the back of the tranny while i lined it up with the input shaft.

it didnt help that i did it outside in the freezing weather and snowing like crazy. lots of swearing and frustration.

Word of advice, change the slave cyl while you are in there. I did my clutch in my 97, and 2 weeks after, the slave went out. In case you didn't know, the slave is inside the trans. Dropping that mother fucker again was not fun

how much would a shop roughly charge to get this done if I bring the clutch

dunno like 3-400? When I did mine, there was a bit of beer involved. And I am a lazy ass, so I work slow lol.

Would an ACDELCO clutch do a good job?

Your best bet is an oem ford clutch and slave cylinder. The tolerances on those things is very close and most aftermarket cluches will not fully release which makes getting into reverse very difficult for the first few hundred miles. Ive done quite a few of these and they are for the most part a pain in the ass, and one of the worst set ups to get working properly again, so get the best parts to start with. If you are going to get a shop to do the job don't supply the parts, as any problem will be blamed on the parts, and there will be no warranty on the labour.

No doubt. Put a cheap as shit clutch into my ranger, someone must have pressed the pedal when the motor was out. Popped the seal out of the slave, put it together not knowing...fluid everywhere. go fuck yourself

Change the slave when you do the clutch but don't forget to get the flywheel ground.
