DependsIt depends on what transmission it has. Ford used different manual transmissions in the Ranger. One was a Mazda which uses Automatic Transmission Fluid in the Manual Transmission. One is made by Mitsubishi which uses gear lube. One is the FM145 5-speed transmission fully synchronized in all forward gears. Available in 4wd only. Bell housing, case and extension housing are aluminum with removable bell housing. The extension housing measures 10 _" and there is a 12 bolt steel bottom pan on unit. This unit is manufactured by Mitsubishi and is used in Ford Ranger and Bronco II vehicles 1985-89. On left side of case is a red ID tag giving Ford part number and unit serial number.M5R1 1988 to present Mazda built, fully synchronized 5-speed transmission, found in Ford Ranger and Explorer trucks. Aluminum case with integral bell housing, aluminum extension housing, and aluminum shift cover. Available in 2 and 4WD models. ID decal on left side of case. The shift cover was modified in 1995 to have a taller shift cover and neutral position switch in cover was eliminated. In 1998 the stub stick in shift cover was changed to accept shift lever with groove on right side. Used with 2.3L,2.9L,3.0L, and 4.0L engines. Ratios will vary with engine size and so will starter locations on bell housing.

Contact your local Ford dealer to find out exactly what you have if you are unsure. Using the wrong fluid will ruin the transmission. Of course if you had an owners manual then you would know.
