the tools are like $4 at NAPA or Advance. If you dont know how to use them, PM me. It took me a while before I decided to research online and figure it out.

The manual adjust idler Wheels for a 2.3L:
for A/C, for Power steering.
Idlers UNAVAILABLE since ford discontinued these many moons gone.
NO AFTERMARKET availability.

WHERE does a Person get these idler wheels as complete units, i.e.,
attached to mounting brackets????

HOW MANY RANGER OWNERS HAVE HAD SUCH PROBLEM(S) and WHAT DID YOU DO to correct??

Thanks.
CHEERS!!

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

Before 90k my fabric has torn, replaced door ajar sensors and door actuators, and now my fuel sending unit in the tank is bad, the PCM can't connect to a diagnostic scanner so the PCM is bad. I have a shudder in the driveline when I take off.

I know a lot of people think 90k is a lot of miles and should be expected. Some have even had lemon imports and better success, but my opinion is that this truck is the biggest POS I've ever had. I regret I had to sell my '97 CRV with over 200k miles because it was more dependable and the seats were indestructible. Oh well in two years or so when I have more paid off I'm kicking this garbage to the curb and getting another Tacoma. I needed a truck to move out of state and had a week to get a truck so it is what it is. :-(

I feel your pain and went through much of the same, only I traded two beloved family cars ('00 Cavalier LS and '08 Cobalt LS) for the Ranger. Wasn't offered a good deal at all on my trades, but was out of time due to the move. Regretting it almost everyday except when driving in deep snow - love the ground clearance.

I feel your pain, I got my ranger almost 7 years ago and I settled on it. Should have gotten a taco like I wanted but the ranger was cheaper. You get what you pay for I guess. Hopefully in a year or 2 ill be back in a Toyota

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

last wednesday i had the local john deere dealers hual truck turn in front of me....


150'


dun dun dun!


----------

i am probably gonna buy it back and keep it for parts cause it only had around 170k on it and everything was working as it should (FINALLY) and i will either fix it slowly cause there really aint much that was damaged (i havent seen if the frame is bent yet but i dont think so) or just get it streetable and use it as a play toy...

but right now im on the look out for a 2.3 ex-cab in or around the dallas area for as close or under $2000 as i can find... i would even consider another reg cab but i gotta have somethin and these trucks get such great millage that i want to stick with a ranger.... (im a dodge/chevy guy)
