    Hello all.
    New forum member here, first post. My manual transmission '98 Ranger 2.5L maintenance schedule says check/change fluid in clutch reservoir at 96,000 miles and I've just passed that recently. So I was gonna go ahead and take a look at it, but darned if I can find it. I know I need to break down and at least get a Chilton manual for the truck, which I plan on doing. But for now can somebody help me out and direct me where this reservoir is exactly? I thought I looked all around the engine compartment pretty good, twice, but don't see it.
    Thanks for any help, or related comments.

    if it's anything like the older rangers, it'll be on the driver's side fender well in the engine compartment close to the cab. black cap and said it was for DOT 3 fluid.

    IIRC on my 98 2.5 its inbetween the power distrubution block and the drivers side fender. its kind of a tight sqeeze to get you hand down in there.

    Okay, thanks you guys. Found it. It was where you said it was. Didnt jump out at me the first few times I looked. :thumbup:

    Incidentally, Klinger 86, I didnt know what you meant by IIRC. So I had to look it up: :D

    Lol yeah I've had to ponder some acronyms too. I've got them about figured out but someone will come up with a new one in the next few days and it will have me stumped for a few days.
