#1546 of 2995 Foghorn sound from intake manifold
Aug 15, 2005 (1:56 pm)
I have a 1998 ford ranger 4x2 extended cab, and I have been having a problem with a noise that sounds like a foghorn or a deep humming noise from the intake near the air filter, that is intermittent at idle. Occasionally, the engine will surge when I accelerate while it is humming, but usually not. I thought it might be my mass air flow sensor, but it does not look bad at all. There are no air or vacuum leaks in the intake, the seals all seem good, and there is nothing caught in the intake that would seem to be causing it, also it is completely random. There is no rhyme or reason to when it occurs. I did recently move to Houston, TX (HOT and HUMID) from Colorado/Wyoming. This started as I pulled into town. Any Ideas?
#1547 of 2995 Check engine lght on for Evap leak
Aug 15, 2005 (2:00 pm)
This has happened before on my 1998 Ranger 4.0L, I replaced both purge solenids, checked the wiring, and could find no leaks in the hoses that are part of the system. The light stayed off for several months, but now is back on. Stll no obvious problems upon inspection, but my mileage seems to have dropped 5 MPG. Any ideas?
#1548 of 2995 Keyless entry does not work
Aug 15, 2005 (2:08 pm)
My 1998 Ranger 4.0L keyless entry does not work. I replaced the batteries in both remotes and reprogrammed them to the truck. But I cannot get them to work at all. The one remote is sort of old, but the other is pretty much brand new. They used to work fine, and then they slowly started not working. For a while, they would do everything except what you requested. Any thoughts?

It was introduced mid year 2001. I remember this well since I waited and waited and waited just to find out that they were only going to offer it on the striper trucks. All I wanted was the 2.3 a/c and the hinged rear doors.
I had to get a loaded truck with the 4.0 to get those darn doors.
Don't get me wrong I love my 4.0 but the 2.3 mileage sure would be nice now.

Are you sure you reprogrammed it correctly. You have to turn the ingnition from off to on without starting the engine 8 times and then the doors should lock. You then push the unlock button on the fob and then do the same thing for the other key fob right after the first one and they should work. I believe the instructions are in your owners manual.

I really believe that it was introduced before 98 Maybe 94-95 my friend has a 97 and complains about haveing to have 2 plugs per cylinder. I know you can't get the 2.3 with the 4 doors. As far as the doors go I think you got taken as I have a 98 3.0l Super cab with the four doors this was the first year. In fact I was just looking at a new 05 super cab with the rear doors with a 3.0l engine.

#1554 of 2995 clutch works perfect until truck gets hot
Aug 16, 2005 (12:14 pm)
I have an 87 Ford Ranger that I just bought. It has a fairly new clutch, but the master cylinder ran out of fluid. I filled it back up, and have repeatedly checked it over and over, and it is not leaking fluid. My problem is that now the clutch will work perfectly until about an hour of driving. When the truck heats up the clutch pedal gets soft, and it begins to slip. Do I have air in the system? What can I do? Please help!?!
