Default BMW guy wanting to get back to the Ranger scene...

Hello! I am Matt in Virginia Beach, VA. I just discovered this forum today. My sig describes my last and only 1999 Ford Ranger 4 cylinder. It was black and nothing special about it. I lost it a few years ago when the engine blew due to a friend's lack of knowledge, then a bankruptcy took her away before I could get a new engine. I hope to get another 98/99 Ranger soon! Thanks in advance for having me here!

Thanks everyone! I really am excited to hopefully be back with it again. My last Ranger was great... as they are awesome little trucks.

A buddy of mine (who was also my supervisor in the Navy) told me about a shop that would offer me a great price on replacing my warped cylinderhead because he was friends with them. $370 labor only (I bought absolutely everything else... coils, plugs, wires, new this, new that, and a rebuilt head). They installed it and mistimed it and said they didn't know why nor could they figure out why it wouldn't start.

Furious, I took it out of the shop and took it to a buddies house, where he timed it properly. But the damage was done. 5mpg, 4 check engine codes, and really loud exhaust tone. The day after that the motor blew. After examination the valve stem for cylinder 4 broke and busted the piston into many pieces, held together by only the rings. The timing belt was intact.

SO in short... f*** my supervisor. (Anyone in VB... it was Grainger's by pick'n'pull).
