#2089 of 2995 2000 Ford Ranger Speedometer Not Working
Apr 05, 2006 (4:51 pm)
Hello, I bought a ranger 4x2 and the speedometer and odometer are not working. I have replaced the ABS sensor on the rear axel and tried a used speed cluster today with the same results. Here is the symstems:
Speedometer not working
Odometer no working
ABS light on
Check Engine light on
Everything else works on the speedo cluster
Odly enoght the dome light does not work, but the wipers do, I'm told all three, light, wipers and speedo are on the same fuse (which is ok)

'grinding, rattling noise when accelerating'.
This is probably 'ping'.
If it was not doing this before the 'tuneup', I would take it back to the mechanic as tell him he did something to it.
He 'might' have put incorrect spark plugs into it, if he changed these. His 'fuel injection' cleaning might have broken some carbon loose in the cylinders and this is causing pinging. He might have knocked a vacumn hose loose. He might have misrouted a spark plug wire and it is now arcing.
On Rangers, 'pinging' is a usual occurance on 3Liter V6 engines, and little can be done about it except to use higher octane gasoline.
#2092 of 2995 oil pressure gage and squeel from belt?
Apr 08, 2006 (12:25 pm)
I have a squeel in the front of the engine that is ear peircing. It only happens when it wants to and that is usually when it is hot or start on a steep incline.
The oil pressure gage drop to o then right back up to normal while driving on the highway- no stopping, engine still ran, but the squeel stopped for about 5 seconds. I have a 2002 Edge- any suggestions?

my 97 ford ranger 4.0 v6 seems to run great at highway speeds but as I slow to a stop it starts to buck and sometimes dies, but restarts like new. What sensors could be malfunctioning and leaning it out, or could this be a vacuum leak? The motor has always run strong and shifted well until this recent problem.

I put the wrong codes on my previous post.

My 97 2.3 litre will only produce warm air. The climate knob seems to turn easier now but will not cool when it is turned to the blue area. Any suggestions?

If you have airconditioning get the r12 "freeon" checked if not you might be looking at blue but the gears inside the knob may not be catching and turning to the cool (blue) area
#2097 of 2995 clutch master cylinder question[callerdale]
Apr 11, 2006 (1:36 pm)
I just replaced the clutch on my 93 Ranger.
There is a black "Bladder" inside the clutch master cylinder fluid reservoir.
What is the function of this and is it a crucial part of the system?

When the tach on my Mustang went out I pulled the instrument cluster from a wrecked one and that took care of it. Not sure what a new instrument cluster would go for but you might want to try the local junk yard.
