transmission problems

I have a 2002 ranger series 10. The transmission is very noisey and won't shift into low.

Welcome to a great forum.
Have you looked at anything yet? Like drain the trans. oil and replace it?

Change the trans fluid with the correct oil and if that doesn't do it probably the shift fork is worn or bent.

I am in the process of checking everything out on the machine. Only 650 hrs on it, so it seems to be in pretty decent shape. Do any of you have a favorite oil you use in trans, and front, and rear diff? Thanks, this is a neat forum, I appreciate the quick replies.

trans and diffs should take the polaris oil. ive seen these componets get really messed up on aftermarket oil. a lot of people put a 75w90 gear oil in these, and by looking at what the AGL for the diff is, it looks way thinner then 90w at operating temperature. these cases hold such little fluid, it is less then $10 per change for the cases.

engine oil, coolant, grease, that kind of stuff is fine aftermarket. but please do yourself a favor and use the right stuff for the cases. nobody really knows the weight of the oil, and polaris will never tell.

Got the right oil

Had my boy pick up some polaris oil, and will service the machine with it, and let you know how it does. Thanks for the help.

I used non polaris gear oil only because I was in a situation and I had it on hand. It got me out of the woods but haven't put any milage on it since.
Been debateing weather to leave it or change it. Was wondering if you
would care to give an estimated guess as to weather the polaris mystery
oil seems to be about a 80 to 90 wt or does it seem alot thinner?

It is a lot thinner, but very slippery. Was surprised at how thin the oil is for front, & rear diff. and also transmission gearbox. It seemed to quite the transmission some too. Low gear still not working, although I didn't expect the new oil to fix that. Will have to tear it down this winter, and rebuild it I suppose.
Really enjoying this forum too.
Tom

I ordered several gears and bearings and installed. Trans works fine now, but is very very noisy in high range. Low and reverse are quite. Must have missed something, or are these gearboxes all noisy like I read about? Using Polaris fluid as required, but still noisy. Any ideas?
