Re: 1990 4.0 4wd starting

Check the obvious first, spark plugs, wires, filters. Is the check engine light on? If so what codes?

Re: Instant intense wobble- camber off??

Just one more reason to NOT lift a truck. Put it back stock. It will be much safer and more reliable.

Re: The cause of many deaths

Brakes and steering components are the most important in any car. I have had the steering shaft come apart on the racecar. Scary as I smacked the wall!

However, I do see a lot, and I mean a whole...

Re: 2019 Ranger configurator

Well I agree that a regular cab looks much better but someone like me with long legs and arms, an extended cab is much more comfortable...plus it makes room for a big sub box

Re: 2019 Ranger configurator

I can get a WRX premium for that price. No way I'd spend that much on a truck.

Re: Ranger won't start

You can rent a compression check gauge from advance or auto zone for free. Or buy one. I think they are around $20 and very useful for small engines also.

Re: Source for Rubber bed mat

Go to a farm store and buy a horse mat. Cut it to fit and now you have a very durable and custom fit mat for less money.

Re: Camper Shell Damaged in transit..wwyd?

This or let them fix it and then you inspect it very closely inside and out. If it shows anything then be stern on your negotiations.

Re: Misplaced Plug

We are going to need more info. Trace the wires back as far as you can. Look closely to see if there are any markings on the plug or wire itself. Plus the year and engine would help!

Re: Ranger is sluggish

Check fuel pressure. Even if the pump is running, that doesn't mean that it is pumping enough fuel to run at higher rpms than idle.
