Re: 2015 f150

I don't understand why they couldn't have put the Atlas tail lights and tailgate on the other models. The Atlas rear end looks sooo much better. I'm not a fan of those 2-tone Platinum tailgates at...

Re: Changing Spark Plugs in 4.0L V6

I unbolted the coolant/wiper reservoirs and moved them over. Made it easy to do the passenger side plugs. Faster/easier than going in through the wheelwell for me.

Re: How rare is a long bed ranger?

Longbed Rangers are only rare in XLT and Splash form and those don't even exist after 2000. But XL/fleet longbeds are a dime a dozen.

Re: $1000 for Ford to change my fuel pump. Seriously?

$1000 is BS, not to mention the fact that the dealership is going to get you an aftermarket fuel pump since Motorcraft discontinued the OEM Ranger fuel pumps. And that aftermarket pump has a decent...

Re: 98 4.0 XLT - strong crank but no start. Intermittent.

So you copy and paste half of your previous post AND on top of that you have no reading comprehension skills. Good job.

Re: 98 4.0 XLT - strong crank but no start. Intermittent.

Got it. Thanks for not being snide 8 year-old about it like the guy above you.

Re: 98 4.0 XLT - strong crank but no start. Intermittent.

Listen, I'm not an idiot. I took it into a shop to have a diagnostic done 2 weeks ago. That's when they replaced my fuel pump relay because they discovered that it was bad, and they start with the...

Re: 98 4.0 XLT - strong crank but no start. Intermittent.

I didn't waste any money. Read my post again. My old fuel pump died. I didn't blindly throw a new pump at it, I replaced the one that died. Then my truck was due for a spark plug change anyway at the...

98 4.0 XLT - strong crank but no start. Intermittent.

Re: Reason for purchasing ranger vs f150?

Re: Reason for purchasing ranger vs f150?

Oh wow, i had no idea they were doing that. They're bringing back the Lightning and calling it something else!

And they're putting 4.10's on it. That thing is gonna be a monster!
