Default Newbie from New Jersey with 88 Ranger

Hello all. I inherited a dark grey 88 Ranger 2.3 FI, RWD BASE model with Auto trans about 10 years ago. It even has front Grille Guard! Go figure!
Now has 82,000 on her. It was really neglected MOST of its life, so when I first got it I gave it a new cheapo Maaco paint job, radiator, timing belt, water pump, catalytic- the usual stuff. Runs great now, except for the occasional "topping off" of R134a in my converted A/C every couple of years!
(I learned the hard way NOT to "top off" with refills that HAVE OIL since there's no more ROOM for more refrigerant)
This is a great site, and I've gotten a lot of great info here!
Between this site, and a little more TLC, the Ranger will be "free to roam" for at least another 80,000!

Jimbo
