#1179 of 2991 Re: Tranny probs flashing OD light [mikeb2k5]
May 02, 2005 (6:39 am)
Does Ford have any sort of recall on this problem? I have a 2002 Ford Ranger with 76,000 miles. Last week I had to have the transmission worked on, something about the throttle body replacement and solenoid which was causing it not to shift very well and the OD light finally came on. Actually since it was new I didn't think it was shifting very well but that was my first truck. Over the past year it has become worse until the OD light started flashing.
The Ford dealer replaced the throttle body and solenoid and it's shifting perfectly, in fact so well I can hardly feel it, much better than it ever did brand new. So it looks like to me it was never quite right? It was a little over $800 to fix it!

Does anyone know where I can purchase a seat release handle for
a ford ranger 2000 model? Not the extended cab, just has two bucket seats.
It was broke when I bought it.
#1181 of 2991 Ranger oil pressure sensor
May 02, 2005 (10:17 am)
'01 Ranger, 4.0L. I suspect a bad oil pressure sensor. Guage drops to 0 after a cold start, returns to normal after engine warms. Where is the sensor located? I bought a new one but can't figure out where it goes. Thanks.

Well the part was easily found and replaced, but didn't do any good. The truck is still acting up on nearly every drive. I took it back up to the dealership I bought it from and they are currently looking for the problem. I have been without my truck for almost a month now. I am loosing faith in Ford to repair their own products.
But thanks for the help Mikeb2k5.
I'm thinking their is an electrical short somewhere to the point where the wire is sending current, but then loses it and shuts down the truck.

#1184 of 2991 UNABLE to bleed slave cylinder (93 Ranger 4.0)
May 03, 2005 (3:08 pm)
Hi All. I hope one of you gurus can give me a little counseling. The techs at the shop working on my Ranger have been uable to successfully bleed the slave cylinder (I was told they have been working on bleeding it for an hour). They have concluded that in order to bleed the slave they must first install a new master cylinder. Any advice? THANKS!
#1185 of 2991 Re: '98 Ranger high idle [pjama]
May 03, 2005 (6:08 pm)
I have a 93 Ford Ranger and have the same problem. It wants to idle at about 2500 RPM as soon as I disengage the clutch. The codes tell me that the temperature sensor is bad. My guess is that the computer is getting a signal from the temperature sensor telling it that the engine is cold and the computer therefor richens the mixture provided by the injectors thus making the engine idle fast. Now and then there are times when the engine idles fine but they are very intermittant. Tomorrow I replace the temperature sensor and will see if the fix is in. If not, I will continue the search.
#1186 of 2991 Trucks catching fire
May 03, 2005 (12:37 pm)
I have a "99" ford ranger super cab 4x4. I was told by a machanic that there is a possibility
that my truck could catch fire. He said that there
is a cruise control sensor that is mounted to the
master cylinder that it causing the vehicles to
catch fire. He also said the vehicle does not have to be running, Just sitting in your driveway
it could catch fire. Does anyone have any info on this ?
P.S. The machanic also said that the government is
trying to get ford to recall the vehicles and fix the problem.

May 03, 2005 (6:17 pm)
I have a 93 4.0 Ranger and had a bitch of a time bleeding the unit. The air was in the master cylinder. It (master cyl) must be totally full and this is hard once it has been drained. It is one of the Ford's NOT BETTER IDEAS. It took me 4 hours to bleed this sucker once I replace the clutch master. There was nothing wrong with the slave. By the way I need a new clutch master again after about 10,000 miles - it won't hold pressure on the slave. This time I will go directly to Ford for the part - last time was a NAPA part.

I have the exact same truck and it started acting up just like yours yesterday. I am going to change the speed sensor in it today and if it still acts up it will be going to the shop. If you find out what the problem is please post it.
