    Ford ranger 2002 3.0 4x4

    You really have to be careful ordering from amazon. I ordered two sets for a cherokee and both were terrible. Sent them back and ordered oem reman's on ebay for 80 bux and that was 40k ago. No issues.

    Issues after rebuild :( Low oil pressure & gas smell in coolant

    https://www.amazon.com/Block-Tester-BT-500-Combustion-Leak/dp/B06VVBSFTF/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=head+gasket+test+kit&qid=1614773680&sr=8-4 Buy one of these to test for head gasket leak. It has worked every time for me if combustion gases were present in the coolant. Cheap tool to save...

    Contact a good remote tuner. They can delete pats and the auto transmission programming out of the pcm and ship it back to you. Should cost 100-150 bux. I'm not sure if he does remote pcm tuning by contact https://www.facebook.com/TuningbyJames/.

    pats help

    Foxbody seats sound like a great solution.
  6. Craig0320


    Yup. They are a mated pair. The module reads the key and then sends the signal to the pcm with the stored matched signal. If the computer doesn't see the correct signal from the pats module it will not send signal ground to fire the injectors. The injectors have power all the time. They just...

    You either have a bad wire or blown fuse somewhere. The injectors should have 12volts all the time with key in run position. As Gump stated also could be the pcm isn't sending the ground to trigger the injectors. Have you used a multimeter to test and see if you have 12volts. If so the pats...

    pats help

    I'm the same height and weigh 230lbs. I feel your pain. I am getting ready to sell my ranger and by a full size. I am getting constant back pain and I know it's from riding in the ranger. Nothing wrong with the seat foam. I have to put a towel between my knee and the door panel.

    pats help

    I wired pats into my 98 ranger and all the wiring was the same. Pats started in 99 model year for ranger so you might have all the wiring behind the dash to just plug the explorer module in.. If not mount the key and transceiver up above your brake pedal and away from any metal. I had...

    New here and need help

    Did you replace the iac with a cheap parts store aftermarket. I had the same idle issues. I bought a factory ford iac and it worked perfect ever since, Even the hitachi brand works well.

    5.0 swap rescue needed

    Was your ranger a v6 or a 4 cylinder before the swap. The 98 explorer should have had pats and the same fuel system as the ranger. If the ranger was flex fuel just change the pump out. Also if the explorer is a return system you'll just have to ad a return line back to the tank. I have a write...
