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

looking at it thinking of oil change putting it back to ford 10w40 get that lousy castrol synthetic i put in just before winter,the castrol lasted good and at least i know my 23 year old engine will run the synthetic took 7 months before it turned from clear to light brown now it looks like ford 10w40 ha! but still to thin for my valves and rockers even adding a quart of castrol 50w

Well the oil change and filter is done and just finished installing new plugs, so glad I did, some were gapped at .045 some at .040 a couple at .050 and the the last one I pulled out was at .058 or so.

funny it ran pretty good that way gas mileage sucked, I gapped them all at .050
it has much better acceleration still has a slight ping under load but I think the gas is crappy, so more seafoam after this tank is gone.

a productive day. now it's beer thirty gotta go

oh, I would do the passenger side any day for the plugs even though you need to pull the wheell off the drivers side sucked took way longer. my 2 cents on that

Put the new bed mat and tailgate mat in and replaced the outer weatherstrip along the bottom of the door windows on both doors and also changed the oil.

Replaced the air filter, cleaned the MAF, IAC and Throttle body. I also replace a bad TPS. The old truck runs better than ever.

Installed a new alarm / remote start system in it yesterday.

Today I'm planning more stuff for it for later this month, before it gets too cold to work on it.

i put my 2" spacers on my wheels a few days ago but the tires were rubbing on the mudflaps so i took the flaps off today. i want to find another set of mudflaps that will work but that might have to wait till i lift it the next 3" to give it a total of a 6" over the factory edge package lol. big money for big plans. oh and i took my stablizers off too. now every bump throws you around a bit more on the road but off road its a monster
