low or no heat,coolant level is fine,can the heater core be flushed&is it a problem to replace&

so my truck was on a 5 hour drive and towards the end of it the heat stopped coming out of the vent. I stopped to check it out- couldnt see much of a difference under the hood so kept going then the heat gauge went up and check engine light so I stopped and waited, got back on the road and almost immediately temp gauge went right back up. stopped, waited and tried to start and truck made bad sounds with some white smoke from back left side. ... ended up getting it towed then took off spark plugs found 2 were broken, there's a lot of wetness and grime underneath. Now, truck will start but ther'es still smoke coming out from back under the hood.

The bracket that holds the pedals on is aluminum and it broke. Would like to know what to watch for when removing (ie wires cables other things that have to be removed etc.).

What drives the oil pump? and what couldve possibly broke that wont spin the shaft to the oil pump anymore?

I just changed the oil/filter and oil pressure switch in my 1990 ford ranger. I notice it had started leaking oil after driven. The oil looks like it's coming from the left(driver) side. Could the oil pan gasket be bad?

Hi! My question is this. My standard Ford Ranger (with a 2.9 engine) has been(for lack of a better word) herking-jerking up hills,turning corners,and on take off. Now i've been driving it for four months and this only started last week. It also seems to be backfiring. I've tried the battery terminal and changed the fuel filter but it's still happening. Any ideas?

I'm getting coolant flushing out of side reservoir from back pressure, accompanied by an unstable temperature gage (dial type). Sometimes its fine. It usually starts about 4 miles after starting.


Where is the windshield washer fluid pump located? Thanks...

It feels like the antilocke brake is grabbing.

How do I disconnect the coolant hoses from the pcv valve to remove it?

High pitched whining occurs in all gears after tranny was totally rebuilt with new parts--intensity of pitch increases as accelerating increases

I will be driving with my wipers on, all of a sudden they decide to stop, or slow down. This happens more and more often, usually I have to just switch to a different speed...but not always. I will have the wipers turned off and they will do a swipe when it wants to, sometimes the fluid goes too...without me telling it to.

My turn signals and interior lights won't work at all. i have checked all the fuses and nothing seems to be wrong there (no burt out fuses). and my interior light also will not work. I bought brand new light bulbs for the interior light but it still does not work. What could be wrong???

check engine light is on

I replaced the engine(professionally) with a store bought rebuilt. After a few miles the check engine light came on but 2 different computers see no defect code. After erasing the code, the light comes back on after driving a few miles again. The new engine runs great.

Sometimes the AT doesn't downshift all the way at a stop. Have to manually move the shift lever to 1st. Seems to happen more often upon a quick or rapid stop. Once it fails to downshift it will continue to have problems downshifting until the truck is shut off and a new trip is started. once the downshifting issue has presented itself, sometimes the O/D lite will start flashing. Once the O/D lite comes on, the trans shifts hard (bangs). The trans has been rebuilt and has a new O/D servor motor and all new solenoids. Unit was rebuilt because of an overdrive failure. This downshiftng issue has been present since the rebuild and was not present before. Any ideas would be appreciated.....Bob
