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

Over the past year I've put a new MAF sensor and TPS in it after it was throwing codes about them and it's still acting up with the O/D light flashing and shaking and banging into reverse. All the other gears work fine. It's just when i put it in reverse. Oh, and i have a leak in the top of my gas tank that i found when i was filling it up...gas really has a odor when it's running out of the tank and onto the concrete.

I love my truck, but i'm seriously pissed off at it and if i can talk my dad into it (since it's in his name) she might be going up for sale. The underside is lookin' pretty ripe and it's at that point where it's gonna become a money pit i got a feeling....

AND..a 2.3L getting the same or worse MPG than a v8 makes no sense.

I hate this annoying vibration at 60-70mph, dad says its time for universal joints...

I wish I had more time and money to sink into this, and then here in ohio the weather is going to get bad quick

I want to kick the engineer that designed the spark plug layout in the 2.5, not the rangers fault but its still annoying.

The fact that it uses oil. Not sure exactly how much but, 1 qt. between changes is more than I want to be adding.

The fact that I am trying to replace my window Regulator and my door panel is off and my door handle/switch has nothing to latch to. (I am missing the clips to screw it on). Therefore I have to deal with a hanging door handle every time I get in the truck ... T_T

I hate my door that has some unknown rattle along with all the other bangs and rattles hopefully some new suspension parts will fix most of them

Tried tightening up your handles? Mine did that for a long time until I realized they could be tightened inside the actual switch panel.

Weve had a SHITLOAD of rain (I heard close to 2 inches today alone), and on my way home from school there was many flooded intersections. I'm glad I have a truck, and not a tiny Honda.

I wish my Ranger were paid off, and I wish that it didn't have almost 60,000 miles already.
