i have disconnected the battery but that is only a temporary fix. replaced tps 4 times in the past 2 and a half yrs

Help
My truck is only going backwards

this can occur while driving I have not had it happen right after driving and it just started

need to test fuel pump pressure but the valve I found is smaller than any adapters I have

Auto parts counter person said it could be a vacuum leak- code p1537

I have had some rather scary high estimates to even evaluate my A/C issues. It is currently not blowing cold air on the coldest setting. I have read that these leaks are difficult to find, even with dye. And I have also read that the stop leak products will seal up rubber as well as metal leaks. There appears to be good sound chemical engineering taking place to help a person like me (low income) to fix a problem that could cost more than the vehicle is actually worth. I was wondering if someone has some insight on this subject (other than Amazon reviews). I do not want to become a crispy critter this summer!!

When driving in 2nd and 3rd gear there is a persistent loud rattling noise that has gotten worse and worse over the past year or so. Months prior to this noise showing up, I did have my muffler welded. The weld is GOOD and still holding fine. The rattling noise literally sounds like a loose bracket or metal strap clanking against some other metal part. I do not know a mechanic that would allow me to actually look under my own vehicle while it is up on the lift.

My truck bucks when driving it has had poor gas mileage and hesitation and loss of power issues. I have replaced starter, cleaned mass air flow sensor, changed spark plugs and wires, changed distributor cap an rotor, checked timing, compression, and still having problems....help

Knocking and popping noise and I feel it through the floor boards. Sounds like metal to metal

My brakes have been check, have plenty of brake fluid

Starts right up but misses no. 5 cylinder has lots of fuel in it.

alt. tested ok power comes back up when I let off the gas.

Has new front axels and the u-joint on the front drive shaft seems ok. Can hear the tick come and go when switching between 2wd and 4wd. Tick speeds up and down with speed of travel.

has a jerking feeling when going up hill or accelerating sometimes but not always

When starting out, the transmission won't shift into gear until the rpms are high

Have 93ford ranger starter is chewing up flywheel on number three what's going on

Making a knocking sound and feeling when accelerating.

Its a high pitched squeal when I start my truck and it will continue until I get going. It will occasionally do it when I turn the wheel and even when I stop sometimes. Its a manual, 4 speed. I'm thinking its the fan belt or the throw-out bearing. PLEASE HELP.

the straps have rusted and gas tank is hanging 3" from the ground

Truck won't start acks bound up after putting tranny back in

have gas to the fuel filter but not to the engine

My 1983 2.3L carb ranger has white smoke and it idles very rough. I'm NOT entirely sure what is wrong with it. Has anyone experience these problems before with their ranger? I would be greatly appreciated for any help.

My owners' manual came with pages ripped out. I'm never quite sure how long to warm up the engine or what it should sound like when it does.

Truck is 86 ranger 2.3. Has full tune up on the vehicle and idles perfectly, but while driving if I press the gas too far down (over 1/4 pedal) or if rpms get above 3000 it jumps bucks spits and loses almost all forward momentum. And has a horrible time trying to climb a hill. This is every time i drive it and its a struggle to get it above 50 mph. Also which type of TPS would this truck need? Also not sure if it is original engine or not but is the 4 plug version fuel injected. Also has all new fuel system including but not limited to tank filter pump sending unit and lines. Thanks in advance

does not blow out coolant.

I've changed the TPS sensor idle bypass valve fuel filter and pump spark plugs and wires. Oxygen sensor has been changed.

Just bought it and have no clue. They are a red and a green plastic toggle switches. On the drivers side, on the lower dash to the left of the steering wheel. Was thinking fog lights and rear lights for the bed, but nothing, could be just burned out or not working. Just wondering what they are for.

It is going to be lifted 3¨

Popping noise while driving that seems to be coming from the front end, is felt in the steering and turns. Does it both at high and low speeds. When the truck picks up speed, the popping sound speeds up as well.
