Ford Ranger QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I recently purchased my 97 XLT Stepside, which came with a few issues. First is the power window on the passengers side doesn't work. I was told that it is the motor. I have located the motor inside the door, but it is actually hidden and very hard to get to. It also has rivets holding it in. I am an ambition first timer, but this seems to be a job for someone more experienced. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
MECHANIC WANTS $1,100.00 TO REPLACE THE WATER PUMP, TIMING COVER GASKET AND THE COOLANT/OIL.
My 2003 Ford Ranger starts well, idles well and sometimes drives well. But quite a bit of the time any more it acts like it has no power. it misses out. I replaced the fuel filter, had the exhaust checked to make sure the catalytic converter is ok and had it hooked up to a diagnostics machine but have had no luck diagnosing it. The mechanic has it right now and is replacing emissions items but is stumped as to why it is acting the way it is.
When I turn the steering wheel, it makes a noise. It only happens when I turn. The pump doesn't appear to be leaking, and shows that the fluid level is full. That's where the noise seems to be coming from.
This Ranger has only 80K miles and has been babied since new. Recently it developed a rough idle when cold. Runs great once it warms up. Recent code indicated an 02 sensor which was replaced along with the check valve grommet for the power brake unit. Replaced the idle throttle position motor to solve an idle surge problem. I can't find a vacuum leak. I haven't yet checked the intake gasket or "0" rings. I have heard a fuel injector "0" ring leak can cause a rough idle. Recent tune up with plugs, wires. Coil checks OK. Any more ideas?
why would my mile decrease as it gets lower.for example i filled my tank up to the full mark an was getting like 13 to 14 miles a gallon until i got to the 3/4 gallon mark and then from 3/4 to just shy of a 1/2 tank mark im getting like 7 to 8 miles a gallon. can a fuel filter that is going bad cause the decrease in mileage.
With pump installed, how do I keep shaft from turning to allow me to install pulley? I do have a puller/installer tool but when I begin shaft just turns and backs bolt out of shaft? Whats the trick??
I replaced my clutch obout 30 days ago and it slips (when it gets hot) as if it were an old clutch. It only slips after I've been driving it for a while on the highway mainly. Could it be a fsulty clutch?
I have a 1996 Ford Ranger with an automatic transmission. Occasionally I have a MAJOR tranny fluid leak. I figured it may be from overheating. I put in a new radiator, flushed the cooling lines to the tranny, and flushed and changed the tranny fluid. That worked fine...until today. On the way home from work I saw smoke in the rear view mirror, pulled over, and tranny fluid was leaking. It looked like from between the motor and tranny (not blow back through the dip stick). If it was a seal wouldn't it do this all the time? This is driving me nuts! One day I drive over 100 miles and no problem. Today I drive 35 miles and the dreaded fluid leak. Has anyone else encountered this? Any advise? Please help!

how much to change console light bulbs and how much time?
After driving about 15 minutes, I hear a growling noise that seems to come from the front. It's a continuous noise, but very noticable when slowing down to come to a stop, while turning the wheel while stopped and especially turning the wheel while backing out of a parking space. I don't hear it until the truck is warmed up. I believe the sound is there when going fast, but because of the wind noise, hard to be sure. When the truck is not moving, the sound is really loud when I turn the steering wheel in either direction. It sounds as if it is coming from the steering column. I also hear it when I first step on the brake when coming to a stop. Actually that's when I first heard the sound, only when I stepped on the brake, and now it always there. I took it to a repair shop and was told it was the power steering pump and that nothing could be done. Replacing it wouldn't help. That it was just something I would have to live with. Is this right? It's also been suggested by friends that it might be CV joints. Is this a safety concern?

While driving, a loud bang is heard from the engine compartment. When this is heard, the engine quits running and I have to coast and stop on the side of the road. If I try to restart the engine with the ignition switch in the on position, the starter will run and the truck acts like its' out of gas. But if I turn the ignition switch fully to off and then turn to start, the truck will start and run. This has happened to me twice during highway driving. The engine does not run rough before or after each incident.
Truck runs fine gets warm shuts down and won't run untill it cools down got fire from coil and distibator to plugs got power to injectors and got fuel smells like its flooding.pulled plugs wet with fuel
It seems as though there is air in the system, the shop put a new radiator in and this problem is occuring, cant take it back because it was 6 months ago when they replaced it. Since then I have replaced the thermostat, and the problem still exist. They did change the heater control valve as well when they did the radiator replacement. And yes it does not heat up for a long while even when the gage saids hot the heater blows cold air. After running for maybe 5 miles it will get warm. Now should my fan run all the time or should it turn of sometimes? It constantly runs.
