Its a high pitched squeal when I start my truck and it will continue until I get going. It will occasionally do it when I turn the wheel and even when I stop sometimes. Its a manual, 4 speed. I'm thinking its the fan belt or the throw-out bearing. PLEASE HELP.

the straps have rusted and gas tank is hanging 3" from the ground

Truck won't start acks bound up after putting tranny back in

have gas to the fuel filter but not to the engine

My 1983 2.3L carb ranger has white smoke and it idles very rough. I'm NOT entirely sure what is wrong with it. Has anyone experience these problems before with their ranger? I would be greatly appreciated for any help.

My owners' manual came with pages ripped out. I'm never quite sure how long to warm up the engine or what it should sound like when it does.

Truck is 86 ranger 2.3. Has full tune up on the vehicle and idles perfectly, but while driving if I press the gas too far down (over 1/4 pedal) or if rpms get above 3000 it jumps bucks spits and loses almost all forward momentum. And has a horrible time trying to climb a hill. This is every time i drive it and its a struggle to get it above 50 mph. Also which type of TPS would this truck need? Also not sure if it is original engine or not but is the 4 plug version fuel injected. Also has all new fuel system including but not limited to tank filter pump sending unit and lines. Thanks in advance

does not blow out coolant.

I've changed the TPS sensor idle bypass valve fuel filter and pump spark plugs and wires. Oxygen sensor has been changed.

Just bought it and have no clue. They are a red and a green plastic toggle switches. On the drivers side, on the lower dash to the left of the steering wheel. Was thinking fog lights and rear lights for the bed, but nothing, could be just burned out or not working. Just wondering what they are for.

It is going to be lifted 3¨

Popping noise while driving that seems to be coming from the front end, is felt in the steering and turns. Does it both at high and low speeds. When the truck picks up speed, the popping sound speeds up as well.

Getting parts list together for the rear brakes on nephew's truck (not here at this time) But I see 9 inch and 10 inch drums, shoes, etc. I think I'm dealing with the 10inch. What's the popular size?

It happens every time I drive it

sounds like its stuck in low gear

sounds like it is in overdrive , straining

sounds like it is in overdrive , straining

The noise was more evident as I accelerator it. I changed the synchronizer shaft, but the noise is still there.

What would cause bad shaking in the front end at 30mph and no brakes

Either when I'm going up hill or during high MPH like 60-80mph the truck lags/ looses RPM's like it's not firing on all cylinders. Then the truck clears out and runs regularly. It seems like fuel issue but might me a vacuum hose not contacting properly

The engine stalls when coming to a stop or turning.

Engine restarts with no problem.

Each time it pops, the vehicle hesitates.

I have a 4x4 switch on dash.

Still stays in 4l. First time this has happened.

it blinks in a sequince of six times every so often

occurs only at certain RPM. Accelerating or decelerating. Took to a shop and they said there were rocks in a protective pan. They removed them but ratlle is still there. Truck has 65K original miles
