If you're not overheating, then don't sweat it just yet.. Just another thing to keep an eye on. If you notice the engine start to run a little warmer than it usually does, then you know theres a good chance it's the water pump.

I have always had Honda's but have always trusted Ford's trucks....I am starting to wonder about this whole "built tough" thing! LOL. I am highly disappointed that after my tune up, I have not seen or felt any major improvement in the trucks operations. Further more, when I had the truck on full air and full heat, the damn AC kicked on for some reason. WTF!? Litterally, the AC was working like a champ. A set the temp to full cold then back to full hot and it kicked back into hot.

I am really hoping I did not just buy a "fixer upper"....I was pretty confident in the truck when I bought it, now I am getting a little nervous.

Hi i got the same problem this weekend on my 2500 ranger xlt there is no water in my oil but there is oil in coolant. Can this come from the turbo that could be cracked or from the intercooler

95% of the time, oil in the coolant means the intake or head gasket is allowing the coolant to mix with the oil. Lime someone said before, they make stuff to "fix" these gaskets. But from my experience, replacing the gaskets is the best, and the safest way to go
