Re: Any thoughts on Rangers vs Nissan D21 (Hardbody)

Nissan Frontiers never had a rusting out problem but they sure did have auto transmissions blowing up due to leaking radiators allowing coolant into the ATF.

Re: Test Drove New 2019 Ranger

Re: A/C Compressor Whine?

Ford Ranger power steering pumps whine and there is a good chance that's it. Belt tensioner is a possibility.
You can replace all the parts you want but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Re: AC problems on the 97 2.3

It could be a blend door problem as far as the trickle of supply air. If the system was completely out then adding charge won't work well without pulling a vacuum first.
What are the pressures?...

Re: 2002 heat vavle on 2.3

I owned three Rangers and logged over 175000 or more on each and never had a problem with a heater valve on any of them.

This valve is a part that really needs to be OEM.

Re: Any thoughts on Rangers vs Nissan D21 (Hardbody)

When the Nissan pickups were called "HardBodies", the sheet metal was so fragile you could cause a dent by lightly leaning on one.
The Frontiers changed the game for Nissan.

There are adjustments that are easy to spot and do. Replace the door seal gaskets.

Re: 2.3L, Tried almost everything, won't turn over.

I you continue throwing parts at it, eventually you'll replace the bad part.
The timing belt isn't broken......well maybe it slipped a few teeth.

Re: AC line thing?

Something tells me that you need to get a pro to get your a/c up and running. "AC line thing" LMAO!
If the system has been open that long, then the compressor is most likely toast.

Re: Advice for my first Ranger

Both of them look good but run a carfax on each one to verify the mileage. The ads supply little or no usable info so look at them personally.
87,000 miles on a 2001 sounds suspicious to me, unless...

Re: Another battery cable replacement question

Run a #4 wire from the alternator bracket to the frame. Always start with easy stuff first. Check battery and voltage with engine running.
