Default Re: The "what do you hate about your Ranger today" thread

CEL keeps coming on in the 98 ranger.
Stupid stuff too.
P0340 cam sync sensor error...its a brand new cam sync and new sensor.
P0171 and P0174 running lean error. Got a stupid vac leak somewhere and cant find it.
I wonder if a broken airbox lid would cause this. The snaps are broken and it wont shut and seal.

Im pretty sure its the maf tho.
I had the same issue on my 99...so i swaped the mafs between the trucks...that fixed it on the 99..now the problem is on the 98..so that indicates its the maf.

But when i had the problem on the 99 i also put in a new IAC too..

Hey, guys....I realize that most of you have been around long enough to understand each others abbreviations, but some of us don't have your exposure. I understand most of 'em. Help the newbies and post a list somewhere covering some of these abbreviations.

If you "hover" your cursor over an abbreviation - a little box will popup & it will tell you commonly used meanings.

For example - if you hover over IAC. It will tell you it means "Idle Air Control".

EDIT: Works on the website version only I believe.

If you are trying to go over 135mph (or much over even 85MPH) in a Ranger - I would hope that you have much more done to it than that.....










Including life insurance & funeral arrangements so your family doesn't need to be burdened due to your lack of judgment.
