Re: Air Filter Recommendations

I run Motorcraft filters when avaialble for oil filters.

If I can get Motorcraft I go with Purolator.

But I mostly find Motorcraft available.

My current Ranger has an FL 820S on it.

Re: Air Filter Recommendations

I would run a wet K&N filter before a Fram filter touched any of my Fords.

Re: Air Filter Recommendations

I had a 1998 Ranger 4.0L. It had the K&N. I seen no difference other than having to clean the MAF sensor after cleaning and oiling it to the stock air filter.

Yeah that is why I would only use the spare to get to the nearest tire repair shop.

Re: Lockable Spare..need help unlocking

I had a 1999 Ranger 4x4 that had 235x75R16 on it from the factory and it too had a 16 inch spare.

Must be your exhaust mods preventing it.

Re: Lockable Spare..need help unlocking

The key is supposed to be in the glove box. You should be able to get one at a Ford dealership.

Re: Scan tool question

They tell me they don't offer an upgrade to read CAN.

I reckon time to purchase a newer scantool.

Re: Scan tool question

The manufacturer says it should read all of it.

Which figures. :D

Re: Scan tool question

Thanks that is what I was trying to find out.

I guess I check with the manufacturer and see if an upgrade is possible.

Re: Scan tool question

The fuse is fine. First thing I checked when it refused to link up.

I am starting to think it may be a software issue with the scanner as it does the same thing on a Ford 500.

It continues to...

Scan tool question

I have a Actron CP 9135 OBD II scan tool.
It won't link up to my 2008 Ranger.
It works fine on my 2000 F-150.

Can anyone tell my why it won't read on the Ranger?

Re: Hi New to forum

Thanks all I love my Ranger. I used to have a 99 of the same discription as my 08. I like the 99 better but only becuase it got better gas mileage. :D
