#1489 of 2991 Re: 2001 Ford Ranger 4.0L V6 NO POWER!!! [ut1seabee]
Jul 29, 2005 (8:03 am)
I have a 99 Ranger and usd to have the same problem at times. The front brake calipers are prone to rusting causing the brakes to not release. I remember times driving in 5th on flat grades, with the gas to the floor, and not being azble to do 55 mph. (My wife got stuck once in mud while in 4 wheel drive due to the same reason.) Ford has known about this brake problem, but won't do a recall because it affects virtually every one of their trucks, but have come up with a solution that Ford dealers service centers know about. I had mine done and have no more problems.
#1491 of 2991 engine light in 2000 ford ranger
Jul 29, 2005 (3:10 pm)
The engine light stays on continually.
Replaced oxygen sensors - light went off(I disconnected the battery).
Drove for about two hours with no light then put in park, put the air on and now the engine light is back on.
Checked vacuum hoses for damage. New air filter,spark plugs and wires.

Have the code/s pulled that are causing the check engine light to be turned on.
Stop throwing parts at an unknown problem.

#1496 of 2991 Finding the transmission type on my 99 Ranger
Jul 31, 2005 (7:22 am)
I am trying to find out what kind of transmission I have and the sticker on the door panel is not helping me. According to the Autozone website there are 3 types of trans. My truck is a 99 Ford Ranger stepside and the only letters I see on the sticker are TPR T A3 and these do not fit the Autozone numbers. Cn Anyone tell me if I am looking at the right numbers.
#1497 of 2991 2002 Ranger Won't Turn Over w/Good Battery & Dash Lights (2.3L,MT, 40k mi)
Jul 31, 2005 (11:24 am)
Could anybody throw in their two cents on this problem? I have an '02 Ranger that will not turn over even with a good battery. When the key is inserted and turned, all the dash lights and headlights come on but the engine does not turn over. No codes were found when scanned. Could it be....
*Power Control Module?
*Whatever the part is called that reads the Key's security code (pls advise)
I am trying to avoid getting the run-around at the dealer and be able to drive to work on Monday! Thanks for your help

Did you check the starter solenoid? Could be the cause and should be fairly easy to replace.
