the 4 wheel drive will not engage some times. the dash light blinks 9 or 12 times on the 4 wheel drive.

While in drive with the O/D on and in motion, at random times the O/D light flashes on and off and the engine sounds as if it is running extremely rough. I am usually doing about 40-45 mph at the time. When I stop and put it park and then in drive again, there are no problems. I would appreciate any and all responses.

how much does this part cost?and how do I go about replacing it?and what tools do I need for the job?

I have already asked and been given an answer, but I've attempted what was told to me to do, and am still unsuccessful. ALL I want to do, Please God!, is to change the gear shift knob. It is pressed on-does not unscrew. Apparently I need someone to go step by step, otherwise it ain't happening.

My 1999 ford ranger is having some problems but I do not know what to do or how much it will cost. When you look at the left side of my gauges, my gas gauage works but it doesn't light up like the right side.

I only live 4-5 blocks from work in a small Ohio town. When I do travel on a 4 lane, which is rare, I don't exceed 65 MPH. I'm using a quarter tank of gas every 7 days. The previous owner removed the stock air cleaner & installed a cone shaped filter. I'm only getting about 10 MPG. Any suggestions on how to better this ? Thanks.

My mechanic said the engine must be pulled out to replace the oil pump. Is this true and if so what is a fair price for repair?

was driving one night at about 35 mph then the engine just revved up real high. tapping on the gas pedal didn't make a difference. turned the truck on and off several times to and it finally slowed down on it's own. that was 6 weeks ago. now it is doing it again, but nothing is making a difference. Have replace the mass air flow sensor which had a broken wire and have tried a fuel injector cleaner additive. My friend thinks it might be the fuel injector stuck open, but he knows nothing about cars.
