Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

The bottom line is you don't get to do whatever you want at your job. If you're taking a knee instead of framing the house the boss can fire you. Football is a job. If you ask me these players are...

Don't these engines have faulty intake manifold gaskets?

Re: Ebrake cable and light

the brake light issue is caused by the parking brake switch. Try wd40 on it, if that does nothing replace it.

I would put tape on the cable for now but plan on replacing it. The ebrake cables can...

Re: No Crank No Start No Fun

Looks like you should replace the transceiver.

Re: No Crank No Start No Fun

Did you find Ron D at the other forum? He's a good guy and knows his stuff.

You got some funky codes there. Are you sure the battery is good? Normally I would agree with an earlier post that the...

Re: I need your opnion please

I don't want to comment on any price you should pay for the truck (it always turns into a flaming DB session). However timkin hubs are $115 each. Transfer case motor is $70. Cv shaft $50. 4wd module...

Re: I need your opnion please

The front axle is live, meaning it's always turning even in 2wd. I'm not sure why banging on a hub would knock it out of 4wd. The 4wd connection is made,at the transfer case using The shift motor. ...

Re: I need your opnion please

The 4.0 timing chain was pretty much resolved by 2005. I think the 3.0 still had a head/burnt exhaust valve issue in 2005. The 1999 2.5 is bulletproof.

I've owned a 99 2.5 2wd a 2004 3.0 2wd...

Re: Just turned 16, which Rangers should I look at?

Rangers do not come stock with a Turbo.

With your budget I would look for a 1998 and up 2wd, 4 cylinder, 5 speed. The powertrains are pretty bullet proof. Try to find one with a good body and...

Re: 2.3 low power

Any chance you change the temp sensor for the gauge instead of the ECT sensor for the PCM? What temp is the engine running at when warmed up?

Re: 07 2.3L Cranks but no start

Next time it does not start, test the fuel pressure (gauge is $20) and check for spark

If you put the key in the ignition and the theft light blinks rapidly something is wrong?

Keep checking...

Re: No power on takeoff (lmfdoooo)

I think level 5 autonomous vehicles will be in here in <5 years. They don't have to be perfect, just better than humans.

I think the Freemont plant has always been GM or Toyota until Tesla.

Re: 07 2.3L Cranks but no start

x 2

seems odd that a brand new $300 motorcraft fuel pump would fail in 3 weeks.

fyi, the PCM's on these truck very rarely fail.
