Re: Hey Guys I need Tranny Help

I've swapped from automatic to standard in different vehicles over the years, but not a Ranger.

Re: 1996 Ranger 2.3 Engine Swap

I haven't looked at the crank sensor mount on the '94, didn't have a need to because I was just changing the head.

Re: 1996 Ranger 2.3 Engine Swap

Hi Greg,
You'll do much better if you use the intake, the sub harness, power steering / AC mount, and any sensors from the '96 engine. The engine is a drop in, but there are "minor" changes, but...

Re: '94 2.3 with bad mis and heavy pinging

Update.

Re: Another over heating 2.3

This has been ruled out as well, but a very good thought.

Re: '94 2.3 with bad mis and heavy pinging

To be honest, I haven't checked. The truck is being delivered today, so I'll pull the codes when it arrives. I did learn that the PO replaced the TPS, whether or not that was adjusted correct is...

Re: Another over heating 2.3

Good ideas, I'll check the timing, but I do not recall seeing any kind of CAS, or distributor that can be adjusted. If the timing is off, how can it be corrected?

Unless the water pump impeller is...

Re: 1999 3.0 swap

If the '99 is PATS equipped, you had best head on down to the the local drug store and lay in a supply of Advil.

Re: "99 mid year head gasket change.

Thanks. That makes more sense than 2 different head gaskets. I'm not doing the stem seals, so getting the correct size isn't a problem. I just didn't want to find I had ordered the wrong head gaskets.

Thanks for the tip. I checked that and thought it was part of the transponder, not the control module?

Re: 99 ranger revs to 3k and idles there for no reason

Off hand I'd say you still have a bad ICM, or the ECM is receiving false information, and is responding by raising the idle to compensate. IE. temp sensor is telling the ECM the engine is cold, ECM...
