2009 Ford Ranger Problems

Engine -- Verified

A buzzing type noise may be noted from upper engine area at about 1900 RPM, under light acceleration. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by loose ignition coil bracket bolts. Coil bracket bolts should be checked for the correct torque before further diagnoses is performed.

Engine -- Verified

The engine may have a higher that normal idle at times. After cold start with an automatic transmission and when the clutch is depressed with a manual transmission. Our technicians tell us updated powertrain control module (PCM) software is available to address this concern.

Drive Train -- Verified

Noisy engagement of clutch slave cylinder to the pressure plate can cause a squeak noise when pressing and releasing the clutch. Replacement of the clutch disc, pressure plate, clutch slave cylinder, plus the application of a special metal assembly paste to the mating components will be needed to reduce the noise.

Brakes -- Verified

Moisture inside the rear brake drum assemblies can cause the rear drum brakes to grab, or lock when first driving. Inspect the rear brakes, replace the rear shoes as needed, and make any adjustments. The back side of the backing plate needs to be sealed where moisture can get into the drums to prevent this from recurring.

2009 Ford Ranger Reviews

I have an 09 ford Ranger. I have had multiple problems with the heat blender door becoming stuck. Now this usually happens on the heat side which in winter is not a problem, but now that warmer weather is here it sucks, can not run a/c. Is this a common problem and does anyone know a way of changing the blender door with out having to remove the interior dash components?
