Default Which engine do I have?

How do you know which 4 cylinder engine is under the hood? How do you tell the difference in a 2.5 and a 2.3 L engine in a ranger?

Since you've got a 4cyl and it's a '00, it means you've got a 2.5L "Lima" engine. The 2.5 was found in 98-01 trucks. Produces 119hp and 146 ft/lbs I believe? Visual differences, I'm stupid to. Both the later 2.3's and the 2.5's have two plugs per cylinder and two coil-packs. I know the heads are different and the intake manifolds are different. The intake is the biggest visual difference I believe.


Here's a link to take a look at.... clicky: http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...cylinders.html

Thanks- I think it must be a 2.5 as well.
