Default 1st Ford

Hey Im John. I just bought my first ford. I got a 88 2.9 ford ranger 4x4 to get me around this winter. I joined the forums for info on keeping it going. Is there any big common problems with the 2.9 I should look out for?

88 is kind of bad year for the ranger my cousin has one and he is having problems like it wont start and he still cant figure it out so just run it to the ground cuz he has had it for 6 months and hasnt figured it out. so just run it for as long as possible.

Welcome to FRF! The most common thing I've noticed about 2.9's are that the valve covers are prone to leaking. And they just keep leaking.
