My truck is a 1994 ford ranger 2.3 liter 4 cyl. 2WD automatic tranny, truck has been running pretty good, but just yesterday It started making a really loud whistle like a boiling tea kettle when accelerating, if I let off accelerator it stops, what could be the problem?

Started out brake lights would not shut off about a hour or so they went off when truck was off but now no brake lights at all replaced switch checked fuses ,bulbs there's no power going to brake lights what do I to.

New battery, new alternator, new clutch safety switch.
Was not starting (no crank) intermittently. Battery tested "Bad Battery" and replaced. Started fine for two weeks then nothing. Same problem. Battery would no longer jump and deep testing showed bad battery. Replaced with another new battery and new clutch switch. Thinking it may be a short in instrument cluster somewhere.
All fuses and relays good.
Short somewhere although no battery drain.
Starter- but no sounds whatsoever.
Note: three years ago instrument cluster was replaced by Ford Dealer. Horn does not work and turn signals won't work until temperature warms up.
Cannot jump but will start with clutch pop.
Any help on troubleshooting procedure would be deeply appreciated.

1994 ford ranger extended cab 2.3L 4 cylinder engine has a strange problem.. The guy I bought it from said it was the clutch, but when we drove it up our driveway in reverse every once in a while it stops like someone slammed the breaks and have no clue why. We jacked the rear end up and tried to see if it was the brakes but on the Jack it did nothing.. Any help? Thanks.

The water pump is in good shape could there be a problem with the timing belt cover?

the noise is louder (or accompanied with) when turning; just noticed some squealing when making a turn into parking space; the high pitched humming (higher and lower with engine speed) seems louder when engine warm, 5 speed manual, engine light on continuously

The only thing works is the headlights, and you see the theft blinking. No radio no interior lights basicly nothing works.

I replaced the factory bulbs with leds in my instrument cluster and climate control panel. They are all 194 bulbs. The leds work fine in the cluster but not at all in the control panel. I reversed the bulb 180 degrees to make sure I had the right polarity. Still nothing. I had to put the factory bulbs back in the control panel. Any suggestions?

Does anyone know how to reset the check engine light?
