    O2 Sensors...Which one

    arrrrggghgh...confused 94 4.0L Splash 4x4. Going to replace both sensors and am looking at Rock Auto. They have several, including Motorcraft - which I am leaning towards -- but it seems to indicate that each side is different(?) OR am I just not interpreting it correctly. Here's the one I'm...

    Fuel Filter Replacement -- easier than I thought

    There are a ton of how to's on replacing your fuel filter. Here's another one for the 4.0L OHV in a 94 Ranger Splash 4x4. I'm sure it covers a bunch of other models too. I just thought as long as I was gonna do it, I would post some images and note any difficulties. There really were none to...

    Two issues: Temp gauge and stumbling, hesitation

    IT takes about a mile and a half for the gauge to start registering and moving up to the first indicator mark and moves past it a little - and it stays there. I get heat. It runs fine, accelerates strong, passing gear is good. Soon after, the CEL comes on. After the CEL, I get hesitation and...

    Broken rear leaf. Help identifying replacement.

    Hi all. Busted a rear leaf and my head is spinning trying to ID a replacement. I've looked at the specs in the Tech section. Tried to parlay that info at Rock Auto and gave up. I think I can replace the individual leaf if I can ID it, but wonder if that is a good idea or should I replace the...

    94 4.0L Auto Error code 177

    Getting a 177 error code after engine warms up - about 5-7 minutes. It is a "Continuous Memory" code that shows HEGO ((HO2S) Sensor fault/always rich. HEGO = Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen sensor. So what exactly is it telling me? I get that it's telling me it's running a rich mix, but why does it...

    94 4.0L OHV starter solenoid and relay

    Been scrounging around trying to find the right place to post this. It's a common problem that I've seen in a bunch of different places. It's the dreaded "CLICK" when you turn the key to start. I know RonD has thrown down a lot of help on this as well as many others. I just got the girl back on...

    FM signal worse than AM?!

    Yes, you read that right. 94 Ford Ranger Splash. This is the original factory radio. Never been messed with. This just started a few days ago. Prior to this it was fine. Now I can barely pull in any FM stations. AM works loud and clear. I don't know where to start. I recently installed new heads...

    Do circuit breakers "Reset"

    94 Ranger Splash 4.0L OHV Are all automotive circuit breakers of the "resetting? variety? I ask because both power windows, driver and passenger side are not working, so I looked at the fuses first. It's a 30 CB, hence my question. I have just finished a head replacement and have not...

    A4LD Shift Lever Positions 94 Ranger Splash

    Hi everyone. I just finished a string in the 4.0L forum about replacing the heads on a 4.0L OHV. During the suturing up, I ran into a problem with the shift cable. The shift cable's casing separated at the bracket on the firewall so the column lever had no resistance to move the lever on the...

    replacement Ignition lock not working with remote start

    After doing some research, I edited the following post: Sometime ago - 2015 - I replaced my worn out ignition lock cylinder with an aftermarket Ford ignition cylinder. The keys look like blanks. Being dumb, I installed it without thinking that the new ignition might not play well with my remote...

    What is this part?

    94 4.0L V6, there is a brace on the left front of the engine. Looks like it bolts to the block and extends toward the left tire and connects to the frame with a small shock absorber. I'm sorry I don't have an image for it (I do but with all the crap in the way it ain't worth posting). If I...

    4x4 axle end parts question

    I replaced the calipers on my Ranger awhile back and noticed that on the passenger side axle end there is a spacer and spring clip, but not on the driver's side. Went to the pull yard and found a 94 4.0L 4x4 Splash, same as mine but on a Styleside, pulled the driver's side wheel and scavenged...

    I know I shouldn't...but can I?

    I have an 94 Ranger Splash SC 4.0L. The left side head has a hole worn through the casting near the rear where the exhaust manifold bolts in. I think and was told it was from a coolant leak and that over time it ate the metal away. The exhaust manifold does look deformed. Even the head bolts...

    Looking for knowledge

    New to this forum, member at a coupe of the others. This looks like a place where I can get some good info. About to do a 4.0L V6 rebuild in my 94 Ranger Splash. I thought that while I'm at it I could do some easy things to increase the performance a little. Don't want to do a swap or anything...
