I only live 4-5 blocks from work in a small Ohio town. When I do travel on a 4 lane, which is rare, I don't exceed 65 MPH. I'm using a quarter tank of gas every 7 days. The previous owner removed the stock air cleaner & installed a cone shaped filter. I'm only getting about 10 MPG. Any suggestions on how to better this ? Thanks.

My mechanic said the engine must be pulled out to replace the oil pump. Is this true and if so what is a fair price for repair?

was driving one night at about 35 mph then the engine just revved up real high. tapping on the gas pedal didn't make a difference. turned the truck on and off several times to and it finally slowed down on it's own. that was 6 weeks ago. now it is doing it again, but nothing is making a difference. Have replace the mass air flow sensor which had a broken wire and have tried a fuel injector cleaner additive. My friend thinks it might be the fuel injector stuck open, but he knows nothing about cars.

Problem began as intermittent blowing/not blowing when fan was turned on. Progressed to point that blower would not blow when turned on, but with the rear window cracked, at speeds over 40mph the blower would come on within a few minutes. Blower does not come on at all now. Have checked the fuse and it is OK. Don't know if this could be tied to a compressor issue, since the unit was mostly in A/C or Defrost mode when turned on.

I have done a compression test to check the head gasket. please HELP ME

Can I get at this valve assembly without removing the dash ? Where exactly is this thing located ? Chiltons' show only the cable controlled unit. I have the non cable unit. How can I insyall a manualyy controlled temp blend door positioner ? I think the actuator works but the link arm is broke. I need to see what is going on before I commit to removing the dash and plenum.

I have a "91 Ford Ranger. Two years ago, I bought a new shift knob (that I really like) and have been unable to put it on. I have asked a couple people who work on cars, gone to 2-3 mech shops and everyone says that it can't be screwed off-it was put on mechanically. Huh? And they say they don't have experience with that. The Ford Dealers are way away from me-is that my only recourse? Or does someone finally have an answer-at least what to tell the mechanic. Merry Christmas-(and may God and anybody else)bless you if you can tell me how to do this stupid thing-after two freakin' years!

I am needing to replace the oil pump in a 1990 ford ranger. I am not sure if you can do it without lifting the motor. Also I have been told that I need to replace the oil pan gasket with the one for a 1993 model due to problems for the 1990-1992 models.

I would like a quote to replace leaf springs on my 1997 ford ranger.

The engine starts ok when temperatures are in the 20s. However, it'll begin to either stall, barely run and rock back and forth, or want to race forward in gear even though my foot is off the accelerator. Any ideas appreciated.

my 1991 ford ranger 2.3 5speed tranny has done something kinda locked up on me on the freeway.i can shift into differtn gears but when i put it in neutral i hear a grinding noise and it wants to roll.does anyone have a clue?thanks

Two issues on my Heat and AC control.
1)Vent direction control feature does not provide consistent control when choosing between floor/dash vents. Lower vents will shut off intermittently. Upper vents will close vents active at all I can tell. I cannot identify a pattern. I have seen other forums list RPM (vacumn ?) as factor. I will idle vehicle and see if anything similar happens.

2) Even with temp on max heat, when I move vent control to both upper/lower vents, I can hear the compressor activate, and with a 4cyl, you notice the compressor engaging as well.

Is this a vacumn problem or a stuck/warped door problem ?

Thank you.

coolant going to heater core not getting hot.... does it have a heater control valve?
