#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

I had just changed my fuel filter on my 1999 Ranger. The tool you need is a fuel line disconnect tool. You can buy in at any auto store. I bought mine at anto zone for like five dollars.
#1382 of 2995 Ranger '99 interior lamp relay
Jun 29, 2005 (6:11 am)
I'm having trouble locating the interior lamp relay, I suppose this relay is not working because when door is open light doesn’t turn on inside cab or outside in cargo area (high mounted lights). Any help or ideas would help. Thanks guys.
#1383 of 2995 Re: Throttle Sensor??? [pickles4]
Jun 30, 2005 (8:59 pm)
I have a 97 2.3 manual and it is doing something weird. My truck idles rough. It loses power and it does not ever die out. I had to have the catalytic converter changed because it was running rough. I have been looking at my Haynes manual and thinking it may be the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). I have had it to the dealer and they say there are no codes. Everything is OK. But everything is not OK. My truck is running terribly. Did the throttle position sensor help?
#1384 of 2995 Ford Ranger Odometer
Jul 01, 2005 (8:39 am)
Okay... When was the first year that the Ranger got the ( 100,000 ) odometer ?
I been shopping for a good used Ford Ranger, mostly in the paper & the craigslist. Anyways... I have seen alot of ads claiming low mileage for example '93 super cab w/48,000mi. Maybe....really 148,000 so just to save me some ground work.
Thank You, Sheri
