What is causing the clutch to get stuck in my 2013 Ford Ranger?

Asked by Alexio

The clutch lever in my 2013 Ranger goes down and gets stuck. The gear lever locks and only unlocks when clutch lever is lifted up. I fitted a new clutch kit three months ago. What could be the problem?

A clutch pedal that won’t return is either sticking (due to friction) has a broken or weak return spring or is throwing out beyond the point it should (like an athlete hyper-extending their knee). How that’s related to the gear-lever locking up is anybody’s guess, but it’s true that if the clutch isn’t disengaging properly (which could be the case if the clutch pedal isn’t doing its thing properly) then the car will refuse to select gears and that can feel like the lever is jammed. Switch the engine off and see if the gears will then select. If so, I’d say the clutch is not disengaging and you may have to pull it all apart again to find out why.
