#2736 of 2995 1994 Ford Ranger question
Jan 07, 2009 (7:33 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.
#2740 of 2995 Clutch Problem
Jan 17, 2009 (5:28 pm)
I have a 2001 Ranger 5 speed. Several months ago I had the clutch master cylinder replaced with an O'Reilly part because I could hardly move the gear shift. It worked for a couple of months but then the same thing happened. The mechanic said I should put a Ford part in which we did. It worked for about 1 month and now it is again hard to move the shifter. A friend told me that there is another clutch cylinder on the transmission. Any suggestions? Thanks

Did you replace the pressure plate with the clutch, or just the clutch disc itself ? The pressure plate could be your problem not the clutch disc. Another possibility is the slave cylinder and throw out bearing.
This should have been changed when the clutch was changed as you have access to it all while the tranny is out. And yet another is that you have air in the hydraulic line and nothing is wrong with anything. I would start with bleeding the clutch line if thats not it go to the slave cylinder next and so on.
Good luck & let us know how you do.

The clutch disc was not replaced, only the master cylinder - twice. The last time it was replaced I was told that there was air in the system. At the moment it is working fine. I suspect the air entered the system during the first master cylinder change. We'll see how it goes.

My 95 Ranger XLT has had a few start/run problems. After getting it running i had it checked and found the Crank Position Sensor was bad. Replaced the sensor and ran fine for a few days then started it one morning...engine shut down about a minute later and now all i can get it to do is crank over. Seems like it's not getting spark. Thought of a fuel problem and tried starting fluid with no luck. Any suggestions on what might be wrong. Also this is the Distributorless model with no Ignition Control Module of the Ranger XLT.
P.S. Also changed the Coil Pack with still no starting results.

Bad plug wires and/or plugs?
At about 6 years and only about 45,000 miles on my 94 I noticed 'static' on the FM radio. Changing to AM, there was even more static. Although the plugs are supposed to last what, 100,000 miles, I went ahead and changed them with the wires. Took one wire and plug out and then replaced both. No chance of messing this up. This cured my 'static'. If there is static, you are loosing voltage to ground instead of firing the plug.
