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

I get in my ranger, start it up to hear hate item #1 = a shot tensioner pulley squealing its ass off, then i go to back out of the driveway and remember hate item #2 = my reverse belt in my transmission is broken... so i was going to make a humorous story out of this but i got lazy so here's a list:

-3.0
-crappy front squealing brake pads
-2WD
-the fact that i slip and slide in wet grass -_-
-stupid EGR vaccum line hose thing that wont stay on
-there is so much more i could think of
-the fact that i was 16 and stupid (not 16 and pregnant lol) and threw money at the first truck i saw, which happened to be the biggest turd in the world, but unfortunately she grew on me and i still love her after all the money ive dropped into that black hole 3.0 rebuild, i will probably not get rid of her

all in all its a love hate relationship hahaha

I hated this on my '96, and it's the same on my '03.
The second fan speed for the AC/Heater is too slow, and the next speed up is too fast.
I wish there was a fan speed in between the two.

That after getting a new drive shaft 6 days ago, I still have this damn bump that sometimes happens a second or two after stopping. Its really sad that I hate this thing after only having it for a month. Loki is likely going back after the powertrain warranty runs out November 2012.
