I have a 2000 Ford Ranger 3.0 V6 flex fuel, and the engine was just replaced and that is working fine, but now the engine light turned on and i keep getting Solenoid Circuit Malfunction codes for Solenoid 1,2,and 3. Does that mean that my trans is gone (because it was working perfectly fine before the engine swap) or could it be something else?

Somebody told me it was either my actuator or my heater control valve. I located the valve and whoever had the truck before I did, zip tied the plunger closed. I took the zip tie off and the heat started working but my temperature gauge would fluctuate from normal to hot no matter what I done. Can anyone tell me if I need to replace the control valve or what?

Added STP and replaced the filter. Any suggestions?

I have the 3.0 motor, after motor is warmed up i get a rattle noise at 2500 rpm,s . this happens when i shift gears, after the rpms increase the rattle goes away. when i downshift when rpms are high their is no noise. other than that engine runs fine. 129000 on engine.

Just got tune up, change gas filter, new electronic distributor. ... now truck pings when it warms up. Any suggestions.

Usually happens after turning a corner. Brake light sometimes also come on briefly.

I have a 97 Ford ranger and can't seem to get rid of the noisy power steering pump. I've changed the fluid and also added some Lucas power steering stop leak. I have no leaks. I don't believe there is any air in the system because there's no bubbles in the reservoir. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Checked fuel pump and fuel filter cleaned gas tank

ok it will sit and idle but when i start to move it it will die and i have changed the fuel pump and the fuel filter

Just replaced my fuel pump and injector nozzles on Ford Ranger 2003 2.5TDI. My vehicle now revs to 2000rpm on startup. If I turn the engine off and start again, then it revs normally. This has happened twice in about 10 cold starts. What can it be ?

Stuck between 4th and 5th gear.

I was driving down the road today and I started ran out of gas. When I pulled over my radio went out along with my flashers and blinkers. I've checked all my fused and they are ok.

My brakes tend to lock up when i press hard on brake. Now my abs light stays on

the transmission fluid is also leaking into the radiator and filling the overflow tank

This leak was causing antifreeze to get into the automatic transmission and the transmission fluid to get into the radiator and fill the collection tank. He is replacing the radiator and flushing the transmission. he told me the bill would be around $1200.00. is that a fair price?

The problem seemed to start all of a sudden. I have to keep the nozzle mostly out of the neck and hold it so it is centered in the hole. I can only pump the gas in at a trickle. I have had this problem every gas station I go to.

Diagnostic code said misfire # 4. Can't afford the repairs so I was going to use the head gasket sealer but don't know which one to buy.
