  1. 2.5L ('98-'01) EGR tube removal

    What size is the EGR tube nut on the exhaust manifold end? I have nothing that I can get in there to remove it. It's big. I want to try and find a crow foot wrench to fit it. Otherwise, I'll be trying to use my rotary tool to cut it off.
  2. Radiator for v8 swap?

    My truck is a 2001 with a 2.5 and autoshatic. Is there a radiator that will drop in place of the original? What about a Ranger 4.0 radiator or 5.0 radiator from an Exploder? What fan shroud?
  3. 2.5L ('98-'01) What sensor is this?

    2.5L sensor is on the side of the oil pump. I thought it was the oil pressure sensor but now I think it may be the cam timing sensor. I need a new connector. Mine is showing bare wires.
  4. 98+ firewall and Ac/heater air box reflective heat mat removal?

    My truck has been down for a while. I went out to work on it and the heat shielding mat on the AC/heater box and firewall have been decimated by mice. They're hanging down on the exhaust. I have a 2.5L auto. Has anyone removed these protective heat shielding without any issues? I'm concerned my...
  5. Fuel tank/sending unit problem? A back siphon on fuel filter return line emptied my fuel tank.

    I changed my fuel filter yesterday. I had just over a half tank of fuel. When I removed the fuel filter, gas never stopped running out of the return line from the filter back to the tank. I stuck the fuel line into an empty jerry can and took the old filter with me to get a new one. When I...
  6. 2001 front clip on 93-97 questions.

    I searched but couldn't find the answer. I know it was done before but maybe a different forum. My 2001 Ranger finally shot it's last shot on the way home last week. I found a 1995 Ranger that took a punch to the nose. Frame is straight and damage is cosmetic. When swapping to the newer 2001...
  7. User not found and have to get new password every visit.

    When I try to log in, I get a message saying "user not found". To be able to log in, I have to reset my password. I check the box to keep me signed in but every time I leave the site I'm logged out. This is a vicious cycle. I checked my browser settings and they are not set to clear log ins or...
  8. 2.5L ('98-'01) 2.3/2.5L head swap possible?

    I am having head problems (sticking valves) on my '01 with 2.5L. I can't find another 2.5L engine or head anywhere. Will the later 93-97 2.3L head swap over to a 2.5L? Those are not hard to find. I'm told by the junkyard that the 2.3 has vastly different sensor locations to the 2.5. I have only...
  9. Battery cable help.

    '01 Ranger with 2.5 and auto. My truck left me stranded. After working on it, I found the battery cables are bad. Does the positive cable make any stops between the battery and the starter? I want to replace it but I don't want to tare apart the wiring harness to do it. I thought I would cut...

  11. Transmission trouble codes after DPFE replacement

    This past Tuesday I replaced the DPFE sensor due to a P1401 trouble code and cleared the trouble code out of the PCM. The new DPFE cleaned up the idle and intermitting stalling problems. I had a high idle problem though, 950 to 1100 rpm. I drove the truck hoping it would settle down and the...
  12. Water inside everywhere!

    I went through the checklist. The heater core is good. The cowl is running free. The 3rd brake light isn't leaking but the rear window shows a couple drips an hour but not even enough to wet the hump inside the back of the cab. Checked the door seals and they are good. No rust around the front...
  13. Code P1401 and operational temp not reached

    2001 2.5L automatic. I recently purchased a data logging scan tool and took my truck for a 20-minute joy ride. It's been running rough and getting about 175 miles from a tank of fuel. When I got back from the trip, I got the dreaded P1401 code and another response," vehicle operational...
  14. Interior door handle problem and oil guage needle issue.

    First issue, the driver's interior door handle. When I went to shut my door, the interior door handle came off in my hand. The metal tore away. I'm a short old fat man with crazy he-man strength. Any ideas on how to repair this? I am looking for a new handle, screws, and clips as well if anyone...
  15. AC + Heater vacuum valve question.

    The past couple weeks, I noticed that my AC isn't getting as cold as normal. Broke out the tools and average 40 psi low side and 160 psi high side. Compressor cycles on about every minute or two. All of this is at idle with the engine at normal operating temps, ambient outside temp around 91F...
  16. Halp! Radio fire!

    I have a 2001 Ranger all original. I went out and started my truck a few minutes before leaving. When I came out to leave, the truck smelled like an electrical fire. Smoke was coming out the front of the radio and from under the dash. I don't have the tool to remove the factory radio. Is there a...
  17. 98-01 4x2 SAS

    I've been researching this idea for a few years. Here is my plan. The victim is a '01 Ranger 4x2 standard cab flareside with coil spring A-arm front suspension. The axle I am considering is the D30 from the Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ 99-04. The axle will be hung on adjustable long arms. Depending on...

    I want to do a manual swap on my '01 Ranger. What years M50D-R1 for a 4x4 have the speedo pick up in the transmission? I was hoping the newer HD version could be set up with a speedo pick up.

    My neighbor blew the transmission in his 4x4 '85 Chev 1500 forest service truck.He transplanted the 400SBC into his other truck and offered the carcase to me.
