#1585 of 2991 94' Transmission Leaking
Aug 25, 2005 (3:59 pm)
I have a 1994 ford ranger with a 3.0 V6. the truck only has 69,500k, I'm leaking transmission fluid from the front seal, SOMETIMES.... I only leak fluid when i'm driving on the interstate and the automatic trans. has to downshift to get up hills or speed up. I'll pull over and let it cool, and go again and it will stop leaking for awhile. if i'm on a normal road going 55 or so it will not even leak... I don't want to replace the gasket if it's not leaking all the time like a bad gasket should. I'm stumped

The VSS is on the top of the rear end housing. It is held in place by one 3/8" bolt. The VSS is about $8.50 at the parts store and $30.00 at the Ford Garage.

#1584 of 1586 Replacing a 99 Ranger Drivers side mirror by 17684 Aug 25, 2005 (5:51 pm)
I was unlucky enough to find out that I could not access the mirror assembly through the door...I have already bought a replacement drivers side mirror and would like to know how to go about replacing it?
Do I need to cut through the metal inside the door, or can I go at it through the outside?
Any help is appreciated..

Sounds like it was your Idle Air control valve. I found one for about 45.00 online, install took about 2 minutes.
#1589 of 2991 96' Ranger Fuel Reset?
Aug 26, 2005 (3:23 pm)
My mothers 96' Ranger just died in town this morning. She pulled to the side of the road for a passing emergency vehicle and when she put it in first to return to the road it just...died. No popping of the clutch.. She tried to restart it and although the turned over...it wouldnt 'catch' and start. She rolled into a parking lot and retried to start it. Same thing...wouldnt 'catch'. Then she saw the light "FUEL RESET'.
Can we just hit a reset button? I hate to leave her truck in town for long, and on a friday night ...ugh.
Any ideas what would have caused this?

i have a 95 ranger and have a gas mileage problem...i replaced the o2 sensor and the plugs but the mileage only increased to 225 mi per tank when it used to be 300-350mi per tank. at its worst it was getting 165 mi per tank before repairs. i have an 18 gallon tank in my 2.3, what kind of mileage are you getting and do u know if the mass air flow sensor causes mileage loss.wondering if thats my problem with my truck

I experienced exactly the same problem on my 99 Ranger yesterday. Initial diagnosis from a transmission shop is that it will require a rebuild. No mention of why the ABS went out at the same time. I have to get the rev's up to 3500 or so for it to get it out of first. They think my 2nd gear has failed (electronics, gaskets?) but need to take it apart to know for sure. I am questioning this. Let me know what you find out and I will do the same. 99 Ranger 3.1 litre V6.
#1592 of 2991 91 Ranger Why wont it crank????
Aug 30, 2005 (7:17 pm)
My father has a 91 Ranger 4.0 engine 4x4. It just cut off one day and will not crank back up! He has worked on it with several of his friends who are experienced mechanics. He has also taken it to our local Ford Dealership and paid them $180.00 to check it out and this is what they told him. The motor is turning, the injectors are firing, but it has no compression, we need to put a new motor in for you. Well my father being the life long big engine mechanic, does not see this as a suitable answer. Can anyone tell us what the deal is with this truck?
Should he just junk it or is there hope? LOL

The guy I bought my '92 Ranger from used it to haul hayracks some fully loaded some over loaded. He replaced the 4 cyl. with a 6 cyl and it has the original 5 speed manual tranny. It's still running good I just need to replace the exhaust and make a few other modifications and customization to turn this former farm truck into a street cruiser. So far it's going good. And I bought the truck back in April.

I have a 1987 Ford Ranger 4x4 2.9 liter V6, I just bought it a couple days ago off of a family member and i have noticed that for example when i stop at a stop sign or red light and i go to through it into first gear to go i notice that it kinda like sticks? or catches somewhere? its like when i let the clutch out and hit the gas it is like it the clutch is stuck or something and there is no power to it, this causes it to stall, so i have to shut the truck off and pump the clutch a little bit, start it up and the clutch will be fine this only happends sometimes!.....do i need to replace the clutch? is it a hard job to replace them? and one more question......wouldent ford rangers be easy on gas? because mine is a pig.
