I hate the fact that the 4.0 SOHC in my Ranger is 20 times harder to work on than my 3.0
Love the extra power put hate working on them.

Walmart stripped my buddies strain plug
As he was leaving town it blew the engine up an hour down the road...really sucks I just got done selling it to him after a rebuild and interior was redone everything inside and out no rust new paint everything he lost controlled when engine locked up and rolled it. He was ok. But the truck was scrap.

Sounds like walmarts fault. Shouldn't they have to pay for it?

Walmart is at fault...I would file a claim...they caused the same problem with my old mercury Capri turbo n they paid almost 5 grand for a new motor...tried saying it wasn't their fault but I had reciepts for 6 oil changes there. N a new set of tires...

Took my truck back to the garage to see what was leaking oil so damned bad. Made them out a MotorCraft filter on and the correct oil. Well still leaks like a cut artery. Really pisses me off.

That I just had it aligned but seems it's off a bit again so off to the shop again...

How my roll down windows squeal and the knob keeps coming off in my hand.
How I can never keep the damn thing clean for more than a day.

The fact that I just bought it and its been acting a fool since like the week after I got it. Im pretty positive I have the worst luck.
P.s- and brought my 08 RMZ 250 to get it fixed twice and both times the stupid clown said it ran good and just got it home an hour ago n it still wont run. Wtf?
