I had that happened after I lifted my 98. There are two hoses that come out of the firewall on the left side and go into a plastic piece which I am pretty sure regulates the flow of the fluid. Then from there one hose goes to the very bottom of your engine and another into the side of it. Anyway check that plastic piece because over time it become very brittle and breaks. Mine was a significant break. I found out that part of it actually had broken off before this happened which I pulled out of the bottom hose.

Thank you! Its better now. I actually noticed my hose clamp on the rad hose was loose. Like really loose. Was able to tighten it like three turns. And no leaks since, so its good to go

FYI 1996 was the best year of any Ranger. Ever.
