#1903 of 2991 1998 (Auto, V6) Ranger transmission problem.
Jan 03, 2006 (8:27 am)
I don't know much cars/trucks. I was just quoted around $3000 by dealer to replace the transmission (with rebuilt transmission)on v6 98 ford ranger (Automatic). Is that good deal. I had around 20k Miles and he could not tell me why transmission went bad! I don't know if transmission need to be replace. I could not go in reverse so i had it towed to a dealer, Any advise suggestion? Thanks

My 2000 Ranger went out 3 weeks ago with only 34,000. My non-Ford mechanic said there were at least 5 service bulletins out on it. Poorly designed and it seems to happen fairly regularly at 40,000. We put in a non-factory transmission (automatic) because Ford apparently isn't fixing the design flaws so you will end up with the same problem a few years down the road! $3200 a week before Xmas-merry Christmas. My last Ford.

I have a 99 ranger xlt extended cab, 2wd, with the 4cyl 5spd. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what custom exhaust i should use, in regards to easy installation and quality. I have looked at Gibson's Dual split back exhaust, so far that seems to be the best. suggestions would be great thanks!

No Dodge means " over priced for what you get " or it's what you do when you see one in the mirror so that they do not hit you.

Can the doors on a 2003 Ranger SC Edge be programmed to autolock? If so, what is the procedure.

#1910 of 2991 Range Trailer Wire Problem
Jan 08, 2006 (4:40 pm)
I have a 1999 Mazda PU 4x4 with the OEM wire harness and a 4 prong flat trailer plug. I hooked up new lights. Everthing works fine, but when I brake, all the lights go off on the trailer. The truck lights are not effected and nothing blows. My ground is good, bulbs ok, fuses ok. I've even tapped into the truck's wires, by-passing the OEM pigtail and still the same problem. Is this a bad brake switch? What is it that I am missing?

I have a noise coming from my pump as well. It began when i dropped a new engine in my truck a few months back. Still have the whine, checked fluid level, replaced belt, etc. I don't know what it is.

To my knowledge they are exactly the same, but I would check it out further.
