Re: antifreeze leaking????

You may want to go get a pressure tester and it can show you the leak in short order.

My local Auto-Zone has them on the Loan-a-Tool Program.

Re: 1996 2.3 Engine Bucking under load

Have you clean out the MAF and the intake temp sensor that is in the intake tube??

While I had it apart I also cleaned the throttle body.

Also EGR is easy to test have you tested it??

'95 Has a Taste for DPFE Sensors

My '95 with 150,000 miles on the odometer has a taste for DPFE sensors.... :rolleyes:

Put a 3rd one in it in less than 2 years and 3rd trip out gives me another P0401 code (it is always a P0401)....

Haven't tried it but mine is also about 10mph off as well. Fix yours and let us know how it goes.

BTW. That is a terrible color for a Ranger. :D

Re: missing at really low idle

What is your reference voltage on the TPS?

Previous owner had messed with the idle screw which is what sets your referenfe voltage. My 95 likes .94 volts idles great now.

Re: Clutch Disengaging on its own?? Heat Related??

I don't think the clutch is quite gone. It ran fine this morning couldn't get it to slip in any gear. It also hasn't been showing any signs of a dying clutch it hasn't been slipping up until...

The Ranger decided to disengage the clutch on its own just minutes after picking up my better 1/2 downtown last night??? Got it just out of Downtown Fort Worth before it gave up on all forward drive....

Hard Vacuum Lines?

Tried a few of my local parts stores (Napa, Autozone, O'Reilly) and no one seem to have this hard sided Vacuum line. Got a bunch of it under the hood of my '95 that needs replaced...

Re: Does No engine light indicate no power to PCM?

It can also mean the bulb in the dash is burned out.

That is what I found on my '95 never gave me any CEL but when you hooked up a code reader it would give me codes.

Re: Cooling Issues!!!

That is what I was wondering also and I live in Texas! ;)

If the radiator is old a new replacement radiator can be had for around $100.00 if you are a DIY kind of person you can swap in a new one...

Re: Idles great until you run the A/C??

Re: Idles great until you run the A/C??

Everything looks clean really clean. I had the entire throttle body off when I did a valve cover gasket replacement about 6 months ago. I cleaned the heck out of it while it was off the truck.

Re: Idles great until you run the A/C??

I cleaned it a while back (about 6 months ago) but it may be due for another cleaning.

Question Idles great until you run the A/C??

Truck seems to idle great unless you have the A/C on and then it wants to idle at around 500 rpm which it does not do well!

I'm thinking IAC valve but shouldn't I also have idle issue even when...
