Drove down to the harbor to look at the tsunami waves, played in 4wd to give it a quick stress.

Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

did some troubleshooting to determine why my OHC was constantly reading "-40 F" ...this happens, by the way, when you have an open circuit to your temperature sensor (or in the temperature sensor!). I found the open -- some asshat had cleanly snipped the wires (both wires, and the wire loom!) going to the sensor. a bit of time, a bit of solder, a bit of shrink-wrap, a bit of tape, and a couple zip-ties later, it's working again...

it was snipped inside the engine bay, at the front corner where it runs along the fender well, then ducks through the radiator support... so, unless it was a contortionist, they'd have had to have the hood open. so, now I'm wondering if the mechanic that was doing my oil change at the dealership did a quick snip to drum up some more business... I will certainly mention it to the service manager the next time I'm in there!!

Did the throttle cable mod on both of my trucks. The F100 took two of my biggest zip ties, and the Ranger took one of my smallest. I then took the Ranger on a test drive. Holy cow did it make a difference. The truck seems to be much more responsive, and my jumpy idle in reverse seems to have disappeared. I don't know how in the world that had anything to do with the throttle cable, but as long as it's gone, i'm happy.

I sold mine

After driving a Ranger, 2 to be exact, for 17 years it was time to upgrade. So last week I purchased a brand new 2011 F150 XLT Scab with EcoBoost.

My last fill up was on Feb 18 at 2.94 per gallon. I'm good for another week yet as I still have close to a half tank. Great gas mileage when I don't drive it. Lol! Gas hit 3.41 a gal around around here.

Washed and waxed it today.

fueled mine up today (@ 3.59/gal) took it to work and back, parked for the weekend. if it was warmer out id be putting on new front brakes, my "summer" tires, and a oil change. the wife's blazer has stuff to be done to it also, but i have no garage, maybe in another week or two i can spend a saterday catching up on everything.

My 91 Ranger transmission was stuck in third gear, I don't know why but I got it unstuck tonight with my handy orange dead blow hammer.
