#1599 of 2991 wipers do not park or work in pause mode
Sep 01, 2005 (10:08 pm)
I have a 1997 Ranger Splash model with 4cyl engine and 5 speed trans. The wipers only work on high speed. The low speed and pause modes do not work. Also, the wipers do not park on shut off. When I ask Ford mechanics about it, they say that it is likely that the motor is the culprit. out. Just replacing the motor (not cheap) without knowing it is bad sounds a bit risky, as there is no return of electric parts you have hooked up. Any test I could do before submitting my truck to an $85 per hour technician?

Is your 4.0 a pushrod motor or is the sohc motor. I've found in my experance that when a motor turns over and injectors are firing but no compression, the cam timing has jumped and the valves are open on compression stroke. hope this helps.

Hi hope you can help me! My daughters 95 ranger wont shift into OD, it does the blinking light and hard shifting. Been driving it with OD off with no problem. The local dealer- Ford took my $75 and said it was a 4th gear concern and would have to go inside for more testing-$$. another dealer said there was a service bulletin on the separator plate gasket- apparently some gaskets blow out. I took it apart and the gasket was ok, I switched the 4 solenoids that are the same inside the tranny, thought if one was bad a different gear would fail but nothing changed. any ideas? thanks for your help, gene

I have a 1998 Ford Ranger that has 57k. I live in upstate NY.
when I first purchased the truck from Towne Ford in Orchard Park, NY, there was a very small leak in the top left side of the windsheild. The rubber seal on the outside does not appear to be damaged.
We had about 4.5 inches of rain fall in 12 hours. As a result, there was water all over the top of the dash board, the floor was very wet, the top liner was wet on the entire passenger side.
Has anyone had a similar prolem? I have owned a previous 1994 Ranger and had no problems with it.
What might be the best way to fix the problem? Should I have a sealant applied to the inside of this area of the windshield? or just have it replaced?
#1603 of 2991 1999 4 Cyl 2.5L exhaust side spark plug removal
Sep 04, 2005 (11:40 am)
This is the first vehicle I've owned where I can't change all my plugs.
The numbers 3 and 4 plugs are hidden behind the manifold and, unless I break all my fingers so they bend backwards, I can't seem to get to them. I tried long nose and crescent pliers, but cannot get the leverage I need to pull the wires. I have the swivel plug socket already.
Are there suggestions on how to make project this easier?
#1604 of 2991 Reprogram computer ???
Sep 04, 2005 (2:36 pm)
I have a 1988 Ranger Extra Cab 4X4, 4-speed/overdrive auto, 2.9 Ltr.EFI
This thing has little power on the highway at 60+mph, I've installed a free flow exhaust with 2 new cats and modified the air intake system.
When I bought it 6 months it had (just installed) a new computer, 2 new fuel pumps, O2 sensor and battery. The engine runs great, just not much power.
For you guy's that hate the stiff ride (like me) call "Coil Spring Specialties" at 785-437-2025 (as I did) and order a pair of their front springs at 20% less spring rate than factory, ($99.00 + shipping) the difference is like night & day! My truck rides GREAT now.

is your ranger equiped with a knock senser, ( located on the side of the block, once it detects detatoin , it retards the timing until the pinging stops, than returns timing to normal. some of these sensor were defective from the start ) just something to check on.

I also have a 93 Ford Ranger that needs the timing belt changed. Do you have any information on how this is done? I need to take the crankshaft pulley off but I am not forsure on what size of puller I need. I would love any helpful information on the process of changing the timing belt.
