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

I had to drive 100 miles through a snow storm on Saturday night. Sunday morning, I looked at the truck, and it was white from all the salt (it's actually black). So, all day Sunday, I wanted to wash the truck, but it never broke 20 degrees.

It was nearly 50 today. I washed and waxed it, then vacuumed the carpet, put some Tuff Stuff on the seats and vacuumed them, and bought some new floor mats (my old ones were 10 years old.)

I found that all my oil leaked out of the oil pressure sensor. Luckily I had one on the spare engine.

You blowing the inline fuses? Check how you have your switch wired up. I burned through 3 fuses before I realized I had it wired bassackwards

Cleaned all the hardened mud and ice that was caked up outta the bottom of my truck (the mud was from October) and washed the truck, waxed the chrome bumpers to get the surface rust off and vacuumed all the sand and dirt out. My truck just hit 100,000 miles so I got the oil changed and will do the 100,000 mile tune up by changing all the drive train fluids in a few weeks! Also the front driver's side axle seal is showing signs of wear, so that's also on the list of things to do....

I remember your thread complaining of water pump failure. I wonder what kind of PITA changing the water pump in a Ranger is, but at least you don't have to foot the bill.

Yeah : well thank god it's powertrain quite honestly It's not something I'd want to tackle lol but then again I'm not that technical when it comes to mechanics... Apparently it's close to 500 they said off warranty, ill find out in a day or two what actually happens!

Cleaned it then when I got home noticed that my 3.5 month old drive shaft had already snapped. Also shackles came in the mail yesterday.
