#1371 of 2995 Throttle Sensor???
Jun 26, 2005 (6:36 pm)
I have a 1996 Ford Ranger; 4 cyl; manual trans. It seems as though it is not getting enough gas. It is idling very very low. Whenever I start my truck it idles very low and sometimes requires pumping the gas to get it started. It idles very low, when I try to rev up the engine it briefly acts as if it is going to die and then it revs up but then right back down to idling very low. It does not die though. Could this be the throttle sensor? Do you have any ideas??
#1372 of 2995 Leaking weather stripping
Jun 26, 2005 (6:43 pm)
I have a 2002 Ranger Supercab. I have noticed an annoying air leak right by you ear where the back door and the front door meet. Its really bad in a cross wind going down the interstate I thought I could stop it from doing this but nothing works. Is this something that these trucks just have a air leak that will drive me nuts ? Anyone else have this.
#1373 of 2995 RPMs high when going down interstate
Jun 26, 2005 (6:45 pm)
My 2002 Ranger seems to run about 3000 rpm when going down the interstate in overdrive. I thought it would not make the motor work so hard in overdrive. Does anyone notice this, or is there something possible wrong with mine ?

I had the same problem I believe. It starts and idles low, them it may rev up to a high rpm for a monemt, and in my case after driving for a while it the idle would return to normal. I replaced the sensor (50 bucks) very simple only 2 screws and all was fine. For a temporary fix though you can tap the sensor right at start up with a screwdriver to unstick the small plunger in the sensor and that usually returns the idle to normal.

threw part at problem.
Pulling codes at service center cost more than part at NAPA.- $20.00!
no problems w/ hot starting and weather has been in 90's all week. Part is readily available in aftermarket so that suggests it's failure is common.
hot start or cold start replace ETC sensor.
#1376 of 2995 Hot weather and Hot engine, Engine turns over but doesn't start
Jun 27, 2005 (10:04 am)
For the past two years, during the summer, after driving for a few miles and the engine getting hot, I can stop somewhere for a quick errand and after a couple of minutes jump back in the truck it won't start. I have to wait until it cools for about 15 minutes. It happened only a couple of times last year and it has already happened several times this summer. This morning, before I drove to work, cold engine, temperature outside about 80, wouldn't start for a couple of minutes. This is the first time it has happened without the engine being hot.
The engine turns over fine, just won't start. No check engine light. Doesn't matter if the radio or AC is on or off, transmission in Park or Neutral. Seems like there is no gas or spark. Until this morning, I was thinking fuel pump problem. After reading posts at several sites I can't narrow it down. OK, to add a little spice to the problem, when trying to start the engine, both door locks will intermittently open and closed. Like an electrical problem, chip or relay resetting itself or possession by an evil spirit!!! Freaky man!

#1379 of 2995 Fuel Filter Replacement
Jun 28, 2005 (8:25 am)
I have a 2002 Ranger Edge 3.0 L V6, and I am looking to replace my fuel filter. I have read that it requires a special tool to remove from the harness. If anyone knows where I can pick this tool up or what its called, or basically any information on how I can do this I would greatly appreciate it. It seems like a relatively simple thing to do, and would prefer not to have to take it in to simply change a filter. Thanks.
#1380 of 2995 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 computer??
Jun 28, 2005 (11:03 am)
My husband and I recently got a 1999 Ranger XLT Sport 4x4 4.0L. It had been rolled in a snow bank and some how got water in the power boster. So we replaced that and the 4x4 motor. Now it surges at about 2500rpm like its the fuel pump. did a pressure test and its good. Also has check engine light on and we ran the codes and they came up as tranny senser codes. The manual tranny dosent have the sensor its calls for. My husband who is a mechanic has been all through it and is now thinking it could be the engine computer. Any input would be great. Thanks
