You are in the Ford Ranger
What is this discussion about?
Ford Ranger, Truck
Sep 03, 2005 (5:38 am)
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?

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?

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.

Good grief, stop throwing parts at an unknown problem. Have the codes pulled for the check engine light, and repair what is causing it to be set...

A autozone employee pulled the codes and the air flow sensor and the EGR was what he found. After resetting the computor the only code that shows up now is code 332 low egr flow.

I have a 1995 Ranger that has a similar problem Leaks from front and rear windows seals look good. Problem is that is looks good but is more than likly dryrotted and HARD like mine. Solution take to glass shop and have them remove and re-seal, or if the glass stores near you say the same thing as here you will have to take it to a body shop and they will have to remove the window and re-seal it.
