2002 Ford Ranger Q&A
2002 Ford Ranger Question: Can you explain to me how an engine can have no oil and the gauge doesn't move?
We bought the car used and paid $7500 for it from Star Nissan in Aug 2012. Everything was fine until the other night the car started knocking- checked the oil NO OIL. No indication on the gauge no check engine light. What happened??? We don't know whether we should junk the car or get a new/used engine. - carrieannmirts
WELL YOU RAN IT LOW ON OIL THATS A GIVEN. I WOULD REPL WITH GOOD USED ENG FROM WRECKING YARD. APPROX COST 2000.00 TO 2500.00 - globalhelper
possible sensor failure(it happens), or the cluster is hooped. refill oil with oil stabilizer additive and test engine. if knocking persists than greg is right. you may need to replace engine. have existing engine inspected by an engine tech. first. tech. will advise. - arturo08
OIL GUAGE OR LAMP? BOTH WILL WORK EVEN WITH VERY LITTLE OIL IN PAN. THESE DO NOT CHECK LEVELS-ONLY PRESSURE! - Villageauto
need more info on vechicle to give a price on new or used engine is engine seised up or just making noise - HuntsPoint
