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

The PCV valve on my 3.0L Ranger is connected to intake by a short "L" shaped hose and a plastic tube. There doesn't appear to be enough space to pull tube out. HELP

can u and how can u burn out in a 1996 ford ranger in a standered

How do you test the primary circuit on the coil packs? 1994 2.3L

When i come to almost a complete stop the engine shudders and sound like it wants to stall but smooths out. This doesn't happen but only once in a while. I'm not getting any codes. I did just fix a code of P0171, had a hole in the EGR tube. My engine still wants to shudder sometimes. I have replaced MAF sensor, PCV and plumbing, fuel filter,plugs and wires. Should i replace the Idle Air control?

While driving I am hearing a Roaring type noise coming from the front of my truck. The noise is only heard from inside the truck and not outside of the truck it seems to get louder the faster I drive at speed exceeding (60) mph and higher what could this noise be from the truck has new tire, no vibration or steering problems just the loud roar.

Where is pcv valve on my 94 ranger 2.3L 4 cylinder
Thank You

i got my engine tore apart to change the timing belt but i cant get the crank shaft pully off please help

the seat belt light flashes several times then remains on every time you start truck. no code shows for the problem.

I believe the speed sensor is faulty but im not sure if its the trans one or rear diff one. as far as the fuel gage I have no clue. Ive been doing a lot of research and havent gotten any answers to why the fuel level gage wont work.

I recently had a 10A fuse blow that ran the hazard lights. When I replaced the fuse my reverse lights and third brake light do not work.

Whenever I put my truck in Park, it rolls forwards or backwards depending on the incline. The Parking Brake works some, but it still rolls. Any idea of what may be causing this. I think it may be linkage, but want to get an educated guess of price and time to repair before I take it in.

I am trying to get a second estimate but it recalls the first estimate I did every time I try. How do I delete it?
