    I recently bought a 2004 Ford Ranger V6 with 95,000 miles on it. The engine light came on and it was the 4th cylinder. The cylinder was replaced and so were the wires. A week or two later, the service light comes on again. It is reading the 4th cylinder again. P0304 code == cylinder 4 misfire. Also 6.1 & 6.9 showed... It is a 3.0 engine. I read that it probably should have a compression test done. Any one have this problem or any suggestions?

    I bought my ranger 2004 FX4 xlt 5 speed manual 4.0 new and she has not missed a beat! The only maintenance items I have had to do was replace an O ring in the thermostat housing. I have just went over 192000 miles. My truck stills starts every time and does not seem to have lost any power. I would not hesitate to take he on accross country.

    This is a review of a 2004 XLT 4x4. With one big exception (for those who drive off-road or on rough gravel), this is a great pick-up. It runs well, drives good (except on studder bumps/washboard), handles just about anything you throw at it, is solid and dependable. For me the "fishtailing" was a huge concern -- since I drive on 35 miles of gravel on a daily basis. When the bed is unloaded, the truck is virtually impossible to handle when you drive across washboard. I know because this fishtailing action caused a roll-over. I was driving about 40-45 mph when I came across a section of dirt/gravel road which was rough (some people call it washboard, some studder bumps). The rear of the truck whipped around so quickly I couldn't make a correction....it felt as if a giant took ahold of the rear end and whipped it around; like the tailgate was trying to pass the hood. The truck slid into a ditch then rolled (from wheels to roof to wheels). Thankfully, I was belted in. The result is a tribute to the sturdy build of this little truck. The engine continued to run, all the lights worked (including dome -- even though the passenger side roof was crushed against the head rest) and the radio was still playing --- it was if nothing happened. I got my senses, retrieved all the stuff which flew out of the cab then drove on into work. Yes, after rolling this truck, I drove almost 40 miles to work. The truck didn't sputter, rattle, shake or shimmy....it continue to run great! The only "injury" I sustained was a tiny piece of glass in the top of my head.....no cuts or bruises! Amazing! Thank God. If you avoid washboard (or keep a couple hundred pounds in the bed), then you'll be happy with this pick-up. I highly recommend it.

    Always used Ford Rangers for delivery trucks, Can't beat them. Tried to use Toyotas but they demand a premium price so we stuck with Rangers very reliable.
