2000 ford ranger, Asheville NC
I'm just posting this to get rid of the stupid "how to post in the forum" message. Hopefully it works.
Anyway, I've got a 2000 ford ranger with a v-6 and automatic transmission. I've already blown one motor in it and the second one is on its way from the look of it. No oil leaks and I don't smell oil burning, but i have to put a quart of oil in it about every 300 miles and it makes rattling noises in a certain rev range right before the overdrive kicks in. Not happy about it.
I wanted to start a musclecar project, but I don't have the scratch right now, so I'm planning to start customizing this POS. I'm thinking of going the 4WD route and covering the whole thing in truckbed liner. Maybe throw on a brush guard and call it good.
At any rate, I'll mostly be lurking.
