I have just arrived via a tow truck yet again!! This thing has quit while shifting from 3rd to 4th gear. Just died outright. I let it sit and tried it again checked and reset the safety switch under the dash and tried it again. I disconnected the battery cable and let it sit and reconnected it and put the ignition in on position after for 2 minutes it was still dead and yes I had 3/4 tank of gas. I have replaced the fuel pump in this piece of machine 2 times in 4 years. Is there anyone out there that can offer a suggestion as to what else it could be. I am ready to go to Chevy if this thing doesn't quit letting me down. Please guys I am on my own here and need help. Any info you can offer will be appreciated and I have tools and know how to turn a wrench just need some ideas as to what to turn it on. No I don't have a code tester and hope I don't have to invest in one. It's winter,snow and colder than a well digger here. Thanks guys

2 weel dr., v6, 3.0 L. when I got my emitions done I got it back saying there is a problem with my "ignition coil B primary/ secendary circuit" at that time it was running but it had lost alot of power. I had to take it on the highway and it started loosing more and more power untill i couldn't even break 10 mph floored. after I turned it off I havn't been able to start it again. What would be a good first step to getting it started, and if someone has the heart and the time if you could email be some details on how to go about changing the coils and/or replacing anything else that could be causing these problems.

if i took mine to have it fixed and it came back like that i would take it back to them and demand they fix it, if it was running fine when you took it to them then it's up to them to take care of the problem

check your exaust and make sure it isn't restricted, have someone to start it! then put your hand over your tail pipe to see if the exaust is comming out ok. if it's ok check your fuel pump. happy hollidays

Jan 07, 2009 (8:33 am)
I have a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT Supercab and I would like to replace the bench seat with bucket seats. A former co-worker had a 1992 Ranger that had really nice bucket seats that had an extension for better thigh support looked like period Recaros but were stock. Does anyone know what years those seats were offered in the Ranger and what did Ford call them or the interior package? Were these bucket seats offered in anyother Ford car or truck?

MY 94 WAS A STX AND IT HAN VERY NICE POWER SEATS, BOLSTERS, ETC. IT MAY BE TOUGH TO FIND THESE SEATS, NOT A LOT OF RANGERS WERE STX'S.
I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE SWAP MUSTANG SEATS INTO RANGERS. ALSO EXPLORERS AND EVEN VANS.
SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS, MY CAT WANTS TO LAY ON MY OTHER ARM...

there should be a dipstick tube right next to the firewall on the passenger side of the engine sometimes it is a real short tube so you need to look close.
