#255 of 302 battery light stays on
Dec 02, 2009 (6:11 am)
I have a 2000 Ford Ranger with a 3.0 engine and the battery light stays on even after replacing the altenator and battery. Any suggestions? The other night I drove it about 60 miles and had to stop and jump it off every 10 miles or so because the battery went dead. Any help?

Charging system needs to be while engine is running 13.5v to 14.v. Make sure the belt isn't loose. Then: with key on engine off check that there is power going to the regulator by unplugging the plug on the back and checking it with a volt meter. If no power it might be a fuse, repost if not. Also check that the B terminal that is the big thick cable connected to the back of the alternator has power and is conected to the battery. If all this checks out, you put in a bad alternater

I have a 2001 Ranger 4x4 with a 4.0. Is it easy to change the oil pump or do I have to raise the motor or move the axle. Thanks.

From what I read, for the older 4Liter (non-overhead cam), you have to raise the motor to drop the pan. Not sure about the newer 4Liter.

#261 of 302 03 Ranger engine, over 3,000 RPM acts up
Jan 23, 2010 (7:09 pm)
Hi, I have an '03 Ranger V6 3.0 Auto 2WD. I rev the engine over 3,000 and it starts misfiring and will not accelerate beyond 3200 with 1/4+ pedal left. Back off and engine runs just fine. Changed gas filter, no luck. Could the TPS be done? Idle and engine speed below 3,000 just fine.
Thanks for any help,

I see a number of complaints about the 6cyl engine ping, but my 2001 2.5L with 75k miles sounds like a bag of marbles at highway speed. Regardless of octane. My gut feeling is a sensor. Reminds me of a GM car I had when the vacuum hose fell off the EGR valve, it was a marble party in the cylinders! The truck is with me in the Middle East (military) far away from a Ford dealer! Any advice out there?
