Re: '01 3.0 eating valve seats and valves? HELP!

This thread is 3 years old so chances are the OP gave up and went on to something else.

Re: Ridiculous dealer offer for my 06 Ranger Sport

Without seeing your truck no one can tell you if it's a lowball offer or not.
13 tear old truck with 9800 miles tells the dealer that the truck has been sitting around and that can be WAY worse on...

That is a beautiful truck! The Ford center caps on those black deep dish rims look great.

Re: Block users

If you can't stand the heat, quit asking moronic questions like these.
Are these the posts that you call helpful? If you need to drive a small pickup over 90 mph, then it's time to grow up boy.

Re: Get better mpg with A/T tires

Putting larger, heavier, tires on a pickup and then wondering why the fuel economy dropped qualifies you for the "Here's Your Sign" award.
The larger circumference will throw the speedo and...

Re: Any productions numbers for GT, Splash, Thunderbolt, Tremor models?

The GT is no big deal and is just trim.
The Thunderbolt is a ghetto version of a 4.0 Ranger supercab...it has a 4.0 with 10-20 HP more than a regular 4.0.
Tremor is just a Ranger with a big radio...

Re: Painting Cost

$2500 low end to paint a regular cab Ranger is high....high....high end.
If a body shop told me $4500-$5000 then I would assume they just didn't want to do the job, or they were hitting the Jim...

Re: Painting Cost

The cost of painting the whole truck, including minor body work and proper prep work should be $1500-$2000....maybe more.
That's the cost by a professional shop and not paint can bubba.

Re: Rear Crossmembers

In the winter there must be salt rationing in stores with all the salt they spread on streets. LOL

Re: 5.8 in 1985 STX 4X4

Why not a Boss 302....or a Boss 351? Since you are dreaming, what about a 3.5L Ecocboost?

The fluid level should read within the hatched marks, not beyond.

Re: Speed tops out at 90 miles per hour

If you are trying to outrun the cops, you'll need to go way faster than 120 mph.

Re: HVAC control issue

Just because a vacuum line is connected doesn't mean it can't leak. Your truck is 16 years old and lines can dry rot just like tires.

If you only put 1/3 cup of PS fluid into it, don't worry about it.

Re: Tow behind rv

It is advisable to disconnect the rear driveshaft and as for the front, I would think the shaft that is linking the front axle to the transfer case should be disconnected.
It's a PIA.

Re: 2007 Ranger - Passenger Airbag Recall 16S26

I wonder what unplugging the sensor under the seat would do.

Re: 2007 Ranger - Passenger Airbag Recall 16S26

I don't know how but there has to be a way to disconnect the trip sensor which sends a signal to the igniter by the air bag at impact.
I guess the dealers told you that nonsense for liability...
