Re: 2.3 L verses 2.5L and an eight plug question
Let me know how it all turns out. I have a friend that has a 2.5 L in a 1999 and it seems to be one tough little engine. We have used it to tow another Ranger back from Kalamazoo (80 miles) and it didn't seem to have a problem doing that (he has a class III hitch on his truck). I bought my 1997 Ranger with the intension of keeping it a long time. With this in mind I wanted to buy another engine and then take my time rebuilding the engine in it now. I have been told by my mechanic it has a hole in one of the pistons (he's pretty reliable). Anyway, if I come across a good deal on a 2.5L that would be my first choice.
Thanks, for the input, keep me updated on how it goes,
The Ford Ranger Forum is Great! I don't mind tackling something as long as I am not "stumbling around in the dark". I love this little truck and want to learn so much more. Guys like you make me feel more confident because of the knowledge you share with the rest of us. Believe me, it is much appreciated.
Have a good one!
