  2. TCC Lockup -- By Manual Switch?

    Yes, torque converter could fail locked, but shouldn't "get better" after awhile You would feel a locked converter pulling against the brakes when stopping, and there would be some jerking as engine stalled
  3. TCC Lockup -- By Manual Switch?

    Good stuff Thanks for the follow ups :)
  4. B4000 - How to add Daytime Running Lights

    Your 1999 may have had the option for DRL so the connector is there but not the fuse or module for it DRL Module should be located behind drivers side Headlights under battery on rad support......I think 2000 Ranger location seen here...
  5. B4000 - How to add Daytime Running Lights

    No, that is a replacement module for vehicles already equipped with DRL Here is a post that has the details to add DRL DIY style: https://www.therangerstation.com/forums/index.php?threads/diy-drls.116027/ True DRL runs the headlights at about 70% brightness, it uses PWM to lower the voltage...
  6. P0155, P0135, P0141, P1131, and a crap idle.

    So you may have leaking injector, once engine fires enough to reach 400rpms computer will turn all injectors back on Cranking speed is 200rpms Give the mechanic those codes, it will help him or her
  7. P0155, P0135, P0141, P1131, and a crap idle.

    Is that fuel or water? All exhaust will drip water, when you burn gasoline(H) with oxygen(O) you will get H2O(water) as a by-product If there is also humidity(water in the air) and/or water in the fuel(rough running) then you get even more water out the exhaust There is a simply test for...
  8. P0155, P0135, P0141, P1131, and a crap idle.

    10.4 volts is a bad battery, surprised it will start the engine Car Batteries are 12.3v to 12.8v 12.8v new(can be 13.0v.....for a few weeks, lol) 12.5v after 3 years 12.3v after 5/6 years and time to watch for battery sales 12.2v and less is a failed battery, car batteries last 5 to 7 years...
  9. P0155, P0135, P0141, P1131, and a crap idle.

    Welcome to TRS :) O2 sensors have 2 separate parts inside The sensor part that generates its own power, 0.1v to 0.9v so under 1 volt The heater part, the O2 sensor part can't work until it is above 650degF, so real HOT, so they are heated to get up to temp faster so computer can use them for...
  10. Newbie needing help

    Welcome to TRS :) 2000 Ranger 3.0l will have a 4R44E automatic 2WD has a shallower trans pan than 4x4 models, so you want the 2WD filter I doubt you will get 10 quarts in as there is no drain on the torque converter, maybe 6 quarts Good page to look at here...
  11. intermittently transmission lock up

    The clutch disconnects the engine from transmission Rear wheels are always connected to the transmission So, yes it reads like a transmission issue, its possible the rear axle/differential is binding up If you have a 4x4 you could disconnect rear drive shaft and drive in 4WD to see if it still...
  12. 2.3L ('02-'11) Sending unit

    Welcome to TRS :) The Bell shaped units are variable senders used on older engines Yours uses a pressure switch sender, smaller unit Yes, on the 2.3 Duratec engines it should be on the oil filter housing
  13. 4.0 SOHC

    I would have pulled the 4 wire coil connector first then cranked engine over for 10 seconds to "prime it" Then do the start up You can also do the same using Clear Flooded Engine routine Key on Press gas pedal down to the floor and hold it down all the way(turns off injectors) Crank engine for...
  14. Coronavirus

    Yes, as said, "when you argue with a fool there are now two fools" Doesn't matter who you think the fool is, because now there is no difference :)
  15. Coronavirus

    Well yes, but that is medical advise, not sure any one here would be swayed from their current views on those subjects to repeat them, argue with them yes, lol.
