Default First Ranger -First Post

Hello from Michigan!
My name is Dan and I just bought a 1999 Ford Ranger Extended Cab 4x4 automatic with 153k miles and still running strong! I spent most of my working years working for Ford's cross-town competitor, General Motors. Since GM has broken the loyalty bond with me by forcing me into an early retirement, I feel no remorse in buying this Ranger and look forward to many more good miles down the road together. Looking through some of the threads, this looks to be a great and helpful forum. Thanks, Dan

Thumbs up Re: First Ranger -First Post

To All Ranger enthusiasts, Hi my name is Gimpy . In November 2009 I bought a "99" standard cab, long bed V6 XL Ranger. Very clean in and out with 49000 plus miles. I have owned F-150s ine the past. My father and sister and I each purchased 1975 F-150 supercabs. There was a special sale advertised a a local dealership. $2850 for each. What a deal! I worked as a mechanic for the RR and have always maintained our vehicles to ensure saftey and longevity. I will say that I was not always fond of the size of the Ranger but I now am comfotable with driving this one. The economy was a factor in buying this truck. I find that it really has a lot going for it. I am very pleased with it . I have looked here at the forum a couple of times and did use the advice regarding the "door ajar" remedy. I think this ia a cool site and look forward to using it to help me with some issues that will arrise and will also be glad to share some advice whem I can.

Hello fellow Ranger enthusiasts

1st time Ranger owner this year. So far so good. Not the greatest in computer use but willing to give it a shot to connect with other Ranger owners about this and that. I joined out of frustration of trying to locate custom parts so I hope this will be a worthwhile adventure. As nice as Rangers are, I am surprised there aren't more custom parts available, unless there are and my computer handicap is keeping me from finding them. Hoping to find some knowledge and help.

Hello from INDIANA(46970)
I've always owned Honda civics, preludes, and most recent a Toyota celica. im proud to say i just traded my celica for a 96 3.0 5-speed. wish it was 4x4 but its not. im having a few "new to me" car problems.

First and i think most important:
while sitting at a stop light it'll overheat but once i start going it'll immediately drop back down to normal temp. i've heard a few things it could be like headgasket, bad fan, clogged radiator, etc. i dont know where to begin on this fix. im not looking to dump alot of money in for repairs if it could be something really simple.

help please!
