hi, i have a 96 ranger 2.3 liter, 5 speed. the truck really doesn't seem to have much power, i know its not that powerful to begin with, but it has all it can do to keep at the speed limit, it has new plugs, air filter, and seems to be running fine, just really seems under powered, is this normal? thanks in advance.

I tend to agree with the Catalytic Converter. I have a '97 Ranger and for the longest time couldn't figure out why it just didn't have any pep and why those little vacuum hoses kept popping off. I found out that one of the Catalytic Converters had been partially crushed in an accident before I got it. Got it fixed and WOW, what a difference.

Jul 19, 2010 (10:06 am)
been experiencing loss of power on acceleration, especially on freeway grades -
put on new sparkplug wires, gap ok - no change - checked coil resistance - primary is about 3ohms - secondary is 10ohms. Do I need to replace the coil?

Aug 19, 2010 (4:32 pm)
i have a 1993 ford ranger 4X4 can I change the engine from 4L OHV to a 302 if so what modifications do I have to do and will the transmission be the same and line up? Will the airbox have to be moved and do I have to put a body lift to make room for the airbox if yes how high? Is it better to go carbrated or does the computer have to be changed? Thank you

#280 of 304 4.0 L V6 Just quit while going 55 mph. Won't start
Oct 20, 2010 (8:34 pm)
My son was driving his ranger at about 50 MPH when it just quit and left him at the side of the road. I checked the fuse box relays under the hood and none were (fuel) blown. Now the truck won't start. The truck has the large V6 engine with about 140,000 miles (2 wheel drive). Could this be a timing chain or crankshaft sensor?
