    97 Ranger Fog Lights Keep Burning Up

    On my 97 with fog lights, this thing burns up the H3 bulbs like crazy. I'm wondering if this is a common/known issue and expected, or if it's because I have aftermarket fog light housings. When I bought my truck, the glass housings were busted so I bought a pair off ebay. It seems like water is...

    Extended Sway Bar Links for TTB Rangers

    I read somewhere on here recently that rear sway bar links from a 95-01 Explorer would work for the front of a lifted TTB Ranger, so I wanted to share my experience with this. I bought a set of these, but it turns out that the top bolt on these links is facing the wrong way. I believe to make...

    What is wrong with my locking hub...?

    Long story short, I've been having this intermittent strange noise coming from the passenger side while I'm driving.

    3.0 Doesn't Get Up To Operating Temp After Coolant Flush

    Hey guys, I recently did a coolant flush on my 97 3.0. While I was doing the coolant flush, I replaced the thermostat with a new one from NAPA (OE temp). The original one seemed to be working, but I figured why not swap it out while I was flushing the system anyway. However, ever since then...

    Sorry in advance for the dumb question lol. On my 1997 Ranger with the 3.0, I noticed that there was a black cable hanging down near the starter not hooked up to anything. I followed the cable up and realized it is the negative cable directly from the negative terminal on the battery. :oops...

    HVAC Vacuum Leak?

    So, I believe I have a vacuum leak somewhere in the HVAC system on my 97 Ranger. I don't know much about how the vacuum controlled HVAC works, so I don't even know where to start looking. I've attached a video to help show what is going on. I don't always remember this switch making so much...

    Upgrade to 130A alternator or no?

    Hey guys, looking for an opinion on what to do. I've got a 1997 Ford Ranger with the 3.0 which has a 95 amp alternator from the factory. The alternator was already replaced when I bought the truck and seems to do fine. However, I've added a two speed electric fan from a 3.8 Ford Thunderbird...
