I was wondering if you figured out this problem yet because mine is having the same issues.
#2965 of 2986 How to get at gas in tank.
May 12, 2012 (8:21 am)
I have a 2003 two wheel drive, automatic transmission, Ford Ranger that just threw a rod. Unfortunately, I had just filled the gas tank. With the price of gas what it is, naturally I want to salvage the gas in the tank. However, no hose, no matter what the size will go beyond the tank filler tube...there must be an anti-syphan device in the end of the filler tube. Not to be prevented from salvaging the gas, I disconnected the fuel line at the engine, stuck a tight-fitting hose into the gas line and turned on the key, expecting the fuel pump to pump the gas into my container. It did not work...I do not know why...inasmuch as the fuel pump is suposed to activate when the key is in the "on" posistion. How can I recover my gasoline? What is the next step, disconnect the fuel filter under the driver's door (if it has one there)?

When I disconnected the fuel filter inside the frame under the drivers door on my 1994, the gas flooded out. (I stuck a pencil in it to stop it.) So, if there is still gas up to there, it will siphon itself out. Or at least a lot of it will come out. If you've lost the vacumn, you might have to suck on it to start the siphon. And you are going to taste and belch gas for a couple of days.
#2967 of 2986 1988 Ranger problem
May 15, 2012 (10:19 am)
I have searched through previous posts but none really seem to match my issues. My ranger is 1988 2.0l engine. Truck runs and starts great from a cold start, no power/acceleration issues. It will continue to run good until I turn it off and try to restart while it's still hot. When I try to restart it will crank but not start like it does when cold. Then power seems ok in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear but in 4th gear the power seems to max out at around 45mph (pedal to the floor) and feels like the engine is shaking (almost feels like a flat tire). I just replaced plugs with not much improvement. Would appreciate any advice/thoughts.
#2968 of 2986 99 RANGER STUMBLES - HELP!
May 16, 2012 (5:35 pm)
My 99 Ranger XLT with 3.0 flex engine (I only use regular unleaded) and 91,000 miles has just started stumbling on acceleration and also when coming to a stop. It starts fine and most of the time it is OK, only stumbling occasionally. It has yet to stall out. The plugs, wires and fuel filter were changed about 5000 miles ago. Has anyone experienced this problem? What should I check?

I have F Ranger 2008, 3LDiesel. I live in Mozambique, so no dealer around here. A staff member filled my Ranger with Petrol. Luckily I realised and did not start the motor. I drained the tank, flushed with Diesel, changed the fuel filter,started the engine, and it is running well. My problem is that the engine warning light comes on when in motion and limits the enigine to 2200rpm. I suppose that this has to be reset? How can I do this myself? Has anyone have a solution?

Hmmmm, I'm really not familiar with your vehicle as you are oversees and I don't believe Ford sells a Ranger with a 3.0L diesel engine. But to reset everything and clear out the codes, over here one of the local auto parts stores will do it for free, or you can just unhook the battery cables for a couple minutes to reset the codes.

I have just over 140,000 miles on it. I had the fuel pump and fuel filter replaced along with a brand new radiator. Recently like last week, I noticed when I got on the freeway and going a lil up hill that when I pushed on the gas, it it would sputter. Now it like I cant go over fifty with out it sputtering. When I stop and put it in park, and reeve up the engine, when the odometor reaches 3, it starts sputtering. I have not had a tune up since I had it. I change the oil regularly. Myson has a cheap diagnostic thing you plug in to the truck. The codes say check gas cap and fuel emissions.
Now the fuel cap light came on about 8 months ago along with the check engine light. But when I looked it up, the check engine light comes on if the cap is malfunctioned. But it has been running fine since then tell now....Any help would be much appreciated.....

Had the same problem with my 95 ford, 2.3 , 4 cyl. Never could get a definite answer on forums without replacing all sensors etc. but what did work on mine, so far, is I found a loose or weak contact ground cable on my battery post, Ever since I replace it seems to work like a charm. Also check the fuel pump relay, sometime that could be the answer. Hope you get it fixed.
