I went to lunch and my automatic transmission started making a horrible grinding noise when I started moving. Once it got going the noise went away but there was major slipping coming out of first. The rest of the gears seemed fine. Later on, I put in in reverse to back out of a parking spot and nothing happened. It was like I put it in neutral. Not knowing what to do, I kept it in Reverse and pushed the truck with my foot. Then the gear grabbed and I was able to go in reverse. Putting it back into Drive made horrible grinding sounds again but I was able to get it going. Now I'm back safe at my office but I'm worried what the cost of the repair is going to be. I'm wondering if it's even worth fixing. Here are the specs: '93 Ford Ranger Automatic 2 Wheel Drive (Rear) Anyone have any experience on the cost of fixing something like this? This really sucks! I can't afford this right now! I guess it's always like that though.
