#1 of 73 Vibration from rotor tranferring throughout vehicle
Jun 22, 2002 (12:51 pm)
Is it possible for the vibration from a warped rotor to transfer to other parts ie; Idler arm bushing, tie rod ends, sway bar bushings,pitman arm bushing, steering componants, drive train and my wrists?
#2 of 73 Vibration transfer?
Jul 01, 2002 (10:26 am)
Certainly...especially if the warped rotors are on the front. My experience with front rotors is that they warp easily, within about 15,000 miles, even if you don't do any heavy braking or hauling of heavy loads.
My opinion is that the Ford rotors are an inferior design.
#3 of 73 Vibration....I agree

My 99F250 SD had about 45k miles when traded in.
It had about 4 brake jobs, one included new front rotors. Definitely you will feel it in the steering wheel and in the whole truck if you let it go.
#4 of 73 Ford Ranger Road Trip
Dec 12, 2002 (7:36 am)
I have a 1999 V6 XLT Automatic Regular Cab Ranger with around 40,100 miles on it. I live in Chicago and I'm going to be moving to San Diego, CA late February. The trips about 2085 miles. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I sorta maintenance I should do before I head out? What's the longest I should drive before giving my Ranger a rest?
Any help would make my move that much smoother. Thanks!
#5 of 73 advice to get at cruise control lamps in steering wheel
Jun 09, 2003 (8:15 am)
Some advice needed. I have a 98 XLT with the cruise controls in the steering wheel. One of the lamps went out and I can't seem to figure out on how to get at the bugger. I'm Worried on removal of the air bag housing as they can be tempermental and go off accidentally. Any suggestions would be appriciated.
#6 of 73 Hard Starting
Jun 21, 2003 (8:26 am)
I have a 1992 Ranger 6cly, Auto. Just recently I experienced stalling and hard starting. Sometimes it won't start. If I give it gas it knonks out. I had a tune-up 6 months ago. I had it in the garage for 4 days and they can't figure out the problem. They changed a sensor, cost about $40, don't know which one, it didn't help. They don't think it's the fuel pump. This guy builds race cars and he can't fix it. Today, took it to a garage that has a lot of computer equip to test it. He will check it out on Monday. Does anyone have any experience with this problem? Appreciate any ideas. Thanks, Tom

Still having the same problem after changing the MAF Sensor. The mechanic thought it was running fine, but picked it up tonight and it's doing the same thing. I ended up leaving it for them to see inj the morning. Any suggestions?

I just bought a 1999 f250 super duty with a 7.3L diesel. I read on anouther forum that there is a water drain on the truck. I took, that it was in the fuel line some were. Could someone tell me where it is and how often do you drain it. I don't know much about a diesel.

I have a 2000 f350 crew v10. The a/c has become not very cool, the pressures are h165, l 35... does that sound right?
