check what gears you have, regearing is one of the best ways to get the most out of a stock engine.

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

Well, it's about 15 degrees outside today and I have to troubleshoot a starter issue. Battery tested good, cables cleaned and still the starter doesn't turn over. Guess it's spark chasing time...

I hate my slipping clutch with a passion. And my rust.. But the clutch more.

Yup, it clicked. Had voltage where it was supposed to be. The starter has been dragging for a week. Changed the starter, it started right up.

Thats exactly what happened with me, as soon as the temps dropped, my started started chugging and taking longer to start the engine, eventually it would just click once, I had to park on hills and pop start for a week before I changed it. It was such a pain in the ass getting one of the bolts off. Had to use a breaker bar and an extension, which I don't own, I had to borrow a friends.

When you push it, put it in 2nd+ gear and "pop" the clutch up and immediately clutch in, only works in manuals obviously but its a way to start if your starter doesn't work. If they were to jump it (hook up jumper cables) then it wouldn't be his starter that's the problem

Yeah we call it push start. Never heard it called pop started. I know a jump start is with the battery
