    2.3 duratec engine max speed limiter

    speed cut at 92 mph. My 01 and 03 had them. Also, my 05 Roush F150 had it as well. My 07 did not have the 92 cutout though.

    Anyone have the part numbers for an 87 4x4's trans shifter bushings

    My 87 4x4 has a developing sloppy shifter. I know it's the cups that are worn and ford no longer carries them. I'm looking for the part numbers of the bits that surround the shifter ball on the top of the transmission. thanks folks

    New 2.3

    I'll always recommend a 2.3L Ranger. Unless you'll be hauling heavy stuff all the time with it. They haul normal stuff a small pickup carries and does it with a savings at the pump. it should also be mentioned that with the manual transmission, theyre pretty peppy. It's much more fun to drive...

    Duratec starting

    My 07 takes a few seconds to start every morning as well. I even wait a reasonable time with the key on before keying it to start so the fuel rail pressurizes. I just figure it's suppose to do that as it's consistantly the same amount of time to start.

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System. What sensors do I need?

    Booooooooooo Bought an 07 Ranger yesterday but wanted to keep my 17" GT's. So I made the switch and left the dealership. 20 minutes or so down the road an idiot light goes off and I'm thinking I have problems already. Pull off and look in the manual. Appears my truck is equipped with the...

    Pics from Sunday's autocross

    it was a good day overall. I was 9th overall beating a co-driving team FS 96 cobra, an SM 03 BMW M4 coupe and a BMW 323i for serious bragging rights. The wheel/tire combo is a great combo for the stock suspended truck. The tires are 245/45/17 Kumho Ecsta SPT's. I did lose to my only STX...
