I have a bronco ii( traded the ranger for it) with a 4.0 from a 92 explorer. At idle it has a tick that sounds like a spark, it will do about 8-10 ticks and quit for about 10-15 seconds and repeat....

Does it crank? If it does did you try starting fluid in the throttle body? If it cranks and starts with starting fluid then fuel is the issue.

They can test that to see if it's bad at autozone. There are little plastic plugs that cover the mounting bolts. I believe they are 5.5mm heads on them. Make sure if you do buy one you get the...

E-locker?

So I noticed when I engage 4lo sometimes my low range light doesn't come on but I'm still in lo range, when it does come on it makes one hell of a clunk in the rear. Could this maybe be an e-locker?...
