Re: Ian's 96 Ranger Build

Thank goodness someone removed the bumper and left the spoiler. Downforce is critical with that 2.3L engine ripping.

A 2000 Ranger is only worth $1000-$2000 at the most so any type of crash will render it a total loss by the insurance companies.
Incorrectly calling the crash totaled......doubtful, not based on...

Re: No AC clutch power

Pull the plug to the compressor solenoid then jump out the clutch solenoid to the battery. I am assuming you have already checked for 12 volts to the compressor.
If it runs check the high and low...

Re: How To: Change Oil in a 4.0 SOHC

Since your filter seized twice it must have been put on too tight. Once the gasket makes contact, further tighten 3/4-7/8 of a turn only.

Re: Motorcraft Spark Plug Wire Problem

The plug wires on the left do not look like motorcraft wires.
At an auto parts store the Motorcrafts will cost about $80.

Re: Alternator Upgrade

What size wire is attached to the alternator? If you are going for the 130 amp only then #6 will be good. I believe #6 should be what is there now. If you go with a larger wire run a fuse on that...

Re: New Motorcraft AC compressor 1.5 yrs ago...dead already?

Any time you open an a/c system, you replace the filter/dryer. Your mechanic should know that and insist on it.

Re: How is the performance of the newer 2.3L Ranger?

If you drive empty the fuel mileage should be 22-24 mpg. If you are hard on the gas or tow significant weight, you will not get 20 mpg.
My neighbor bought a new demo 4x2 and he likes his very much.

Re: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

First you write that it wants to die when shifting from first to second gear...........then you write that letting the clutch out when stopped is the problem.
Figure out what is really happening...
