You were just complaining about it! If you keep up with maintenance I'm sure you will have it for another 100k, if not more.

I hate this intermittent no start issue. However, I love the 25mpg.

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

NEED HELP! hey everyone im a novice mechanic and i just changed my spark plugs on my 2.3 cyl. the thrid plug came out with oil on it. i went to put new ones in and no matter what the 3rd spark plug wouldnt go in fully, the spark plug isnt stripped and there the right ones. im thinking the threads for the engine block are stripped. it seats enough were it still fires correctly but you can tell the plug is sitting out a lil bit. what can i do to fix this, get it tapped or do i have to buy a new head or something? i know that it could be a valve guide for the oil leakage or just the gasket but i havent tookin it apart yet to see. if anyone can help it would mean the world to me. i just want to know what i can do for the striping ill worry about the rest when i identify what is wrong. my truck is my baby and only has 75k on it.

Dude, you should have another 150, 000 or possibly 200, 000 left before a overhaul is necessary. My truck has 210, 000 miles on it and doesn't burn or leak an once of oil. Now all the little sensors and and computers is another thing, but mine still isn't doing bad on that, just replaced my o2 sensor and clean several others like the iac and mai ect.

it shakes when its cold and acts like it will die while backing out of my driveway.

the check engine light is one, the brake light is on, and the abs light is on.
