Well, you can't fix what's wrong till you find out what it is.

Re: Timing chain questions and options

I'd pull the timing cover and see what's wrong before worrying about what to buy and pay for it, find the problem first.

Re: Will a 2wd transmission fit in a 4x4??

Like Dirtman said, and if you want 4x4, swap the guts from the 2x4 into your case, using your 4x4 output shaft and housing.

Re: Auction bought 04 ranger edge

The minor shake at idle and take off could be a valve starting burn, its a pain to run a compression test on that engine, but it would give you an idea.

Re: Good rpms, no power

The trans could be slipping, does the trans oil smell burnt, or is it real brown looking, could be the filter is clogged.

Re: 1998 Ranger 2x4 Rear Drive Wheel

On mine the right one seems to have the most pull, but on ice or snow either one will spin if the other one has traction, and rangers did come with posi track.

Re: 88' Ranger 2.3 Fuel and Running issues

Screw the bowl off that canister and check for a filter, if it has one and its gunked up, new ones can be bought, but some say a filter in there is not needed.

Re: 88' Ranger 2.3 Fuel and Running issues

It does have two pumps, low pressure one in the tank, high pressure under your feet, and sometimes that canister you mention, does have a filter in it.

Re: M5R1 Question

If I'm not mistaken the one that holds the speedo gear on the output shaft is the same, if not take the cluster to Westlake or a place that has the round balls and try fit.

Re: 99 Ford ranger

Driveshaft is on the drivers side, but sometimes noise seems to travel around, jack the front up and spin the wheels checking for a bad wheel bearing. or cv joint.
