Default Hey guys!

hey guys my name is Jeremy, I'm 28 and I'm from Louisiana. I just recently bought my 3rd Ford Ranger. its a 95 model with a 5speed manual transmission and a 2.3L engine... my other Rangers had V6 engines and I have honestly always wanted a Ranger with a 4 Banger so im excited. I love these little trucks man! They are just so practical, reliable and easy to work on. This forum has already been so helpful to me so I look forward to helping you guys solve any problems and answer any questions you may have about your trucks. Ive only owned this truck for about a month now and I've already had to overhaul the top end because the previous owner blew the head gasket and fixed it with some of that block seal crap from the auto parts store. I just finished the top end which included Head Gasket, Timing Belt with tensioner, Water Pump, Thermostat, Coolant temp sensor, Exhaust gasket, Intake gasket, Throttle body gasket, and Valve cover gasket... yep i think thats about it lol... I also cleaned the throttle body and intake manifold because they were very dirty... oh yeah i also changed the leaking Cam shaft seal and replaced dry rotted vacuum hose... Im feeling good because that bad boy is running well... again I hope I can help you guys with any problems you might have. God bless you all!
