Bought mine from Advance auto. If you get some coolant in the oil, just change the oil.

Re: AC Compressor

You should get a set of gauges.

Turn your AC on Max mode, turn the fan all the way up, and roll the windows down. Make sure the truck is warm too. The compressor kicks on when the suction side...

Did he take the head off and look to see if it was cracked or is just guessing because he probably isn't getting paid?

Re: Oil Gague takes a few minutes to move up

Not sure, the 4.0 is behind the power steering pump on drivers side. 3.0 may be in the same area.

Re: Please help

We arent much help without a OBD code, it could be a intake gasket, a bad vacuum line, or an electical plug is corroded or disconnected.

Re: 97' ranger 4.0V6 ohv idling too high now

If he removed the throttle body, he may have cracked the vacuum hose under it. That's what happened to mine.

Sounds like a bad starter gear. You could try turning the crank pulley 90 degrees and see if the starter engages after that. It could also be the flywheel teeth are messed up, but more likely it's...

Re: best way to assemble top end?

I would install the heads loose and then install the lower intake with bolts to make sure they line up before torqueing the heads down.
