Talking To make myself Known...

Well I guess we will start out with a name. I'm Andrew, 17, live in Massachusetts. I have a 1997 Ford Ranger. It's a 2.3L, 4 cylinder. 2x4 single cab, step side bed. 4 speed with OD. A little over 119K. I found this site kind of by accident. As we all know Ford is Ford and they have some problems but today my Check engine light came on. So I hooked it up to the OBD II mod. at work and it gave me PO171. MAF sensor. Googled It. Came here. So I guess I will start about my truck. I got it Aug. 23rd of this year and so far it has done.... okay.... I went to get it inspected, both the lower ball joints were shot, so the guy replaced them. (glad I bought it from a shop) Two weeks later It blew out the front passenger side suspension shackle. So I replaced Both on the passenger side. A week later the starter died. Glad it's a standard. So It would not pass emissions. NEW EXHAUST (mostly) New headers and from the Cat. back to come out the side. So a week ago The metal T that holds the coolant thermostat rusted a whole in the bottom of it and it. That part has been discontinued... like really? I made one out of cast iron. works great. Two days ago it was raining and my truck slid taking a corner from a set of lights.... tapped the curb and blew out the Driver side rear suspension shackle. So Yesterday I replaced the drivers side front and back. Alright so the whole reason I'm here. MAF sensor. Everything on here is great. detailed with pictures and what not. I hope I can add to this and have a good time. I will put up more pictures of my truck.

Hey Andrew,

Welcome to FRF

I'm sorry to hear about all the stuff that's been happening to your Ranger but there's many knowlegeable people on this site that should be able to help you get you Ranger up and running if something else happens.

Brian
