Re: Prior owner Splashed Paint On Tailgate

If it is house paint it should be latex paint - a paint remover like Oops or Goo-Gone will likely remove all or most of the paint without hurting the factory finish as long as you don't scrape it...

Re: Odd Idle Behavior with Clutch In?

Just an update for anyone who might have this problem in the future. I have been working on this issue a little at a time as I had free time.

I tried replacing the IAC first, with no change....

Re: How to allow passenger seat to move further forward..??

For some reason (maybe weight?) the 2.3L Supercab Rangers only came in 2-door, not available in 4-door, as far as I can tell. I can only tell you that I have NEVER seen a 2.3L 4-door, but would love...

Re: How to allow passenger seat to move further forward..??

For what it's worth, the passenger seat in my old '86 Supercab went a heck of a lot further forward for access to the rear than my '08 Supercab does (neither are four-door). Seems like a step...

Re: Trying engine

It could also be a vacuum leak in your climate control circuit. It will be harder to do with the engine revved up, but turn your selector to defrost and see if you hear a "hissing" vacuum leak...

Re: Odd Idle Behavior with Clutch In?

Thank y'all. That bug, virus, or whatever this site seems to have persistently makes it hard to get on here sometimes. I appreciate your advice and will take a look at the AIC.

Odd Idle Behavior with Clutch In?

The truck I have had for about two years has begun exhibiting an odd idle characteristic. It is a 2008 2.3L 5-speed, about 135k miles.

At road speed, when I push in the clutch to coast to a stop...

Re: New Heater Core

Thanks! I was curious how long it would take, especially with the AC complicating things.

Re: AC problem

Excellent! Hope it turns out to be this simple for you. I usually buy well-used vehicles and then keep them a LONG time (retired my '86 Ranger at 30 years old and 350-some-odd thousand miles, for...

Re: AC problem

It's hard to tell what your AC system is doing from a single gauge. To figure out what the issue is, you really need a dual set of gauges and a chart that shows the normal operating pressures at a...

Re: Smart Junction Box, broken pegs, & Water

I really hate those intermittent, clandestine water leaks. My 2008 (bought used a couple years ago) shows signs of having water leaking into the fuse panel/SJB. Fortunately, it no longer appears to...

Re: Duratec Oil Filter: FL-910S or FL-400s?

Thanks, Nigel. I think you and I have the same computer skills - I'm always managing to do stuff like that! Amazon had those 400s for $2.99 last week, and I ordered a batch of them. Now they're...

Re: Duratec Oil Filter: FL-910S or FL-400s?

Thanks, Tyler. That part number doesn't appear to match anything. HP-1002, maybe? Unfortunately, I'm no fan of K&N filters; I've seen way too many of their oiled air filters wreck engines by letting...

Duratec Oil Filter: FL-910S or FL-400s?

Ford used to recommend the FL-400S for the 2.3 Duratec, now they recommend the FL-910S, which is a smaller filter. Any reason why they switched? Since they still make the larger 400S, any reason not...

Re: To Paint Canopy or Not to Paint - Your Opinion

I was thinking the same thing as I read through the thread - a black cap is going to be HOT inside! Silver doesn't look bad with black to me.
