Re: Clatter under mild load or when trying to accelerate on highway

Here is an update on my decarbonizing of my Ranger. The smoking tapered off after about 45 to 50 minutes of running at idle. I took the truck for a easy highway drive of about 20 miles and when I was...

Re: Clatter under mild load or when trying to accelerate on highway

I did the seafoam tonight. The truck would not stay running with the brake booster vacuum line disconnected so I had to jump back and forth to keep it going until I could introduce the one-third pint...

Re: Clatter under mild load or when trying to accelerate on highway

I have a 1997 2.3 L with 154k. This is a single owner and for the most part has been well cared for. Recently I have noticed that while under load or if slightly lugging the motor the engine makes a...

Re: A/C Hose Assembly question

I dropped it off at the shop today. It is going to be 108F today, 107F tomorrow, and then we will finish out the week with a string of 105F's. I don't feel like working in the heat anyway :)

Re: 5 speed transmission question, 97 2WD

Re: 5 speed transmission question, 97 2WD

Everything the mechanic uses is either NAPA lifetime stuff or FoMoCo (Called, it was a NAPA Part). I have used him since college so I have a pretty good feel for him. However, I will check since it...

Hello. I have “pre-inherited” a 1997 ranger 4x2, 4cyl, 5 speed from my father and I love this little truck. I really just use it for light hunting trips and kayak trailer pulling duty because of the...
