    Does Ford still have rights to the Mercury name?

    I got to thinking this earlier today that does Ford still have rights to the Mercury name IF Ford decides to bring the Mercury nameplate back for vehicle production?

    I saw a video on youtube that Ford is bringing the Ranchero nameplate back and still be built as the car/truck hybrid and was wondering if this is true or is it just a hoax?

    2.3L ('02-'11) How long do they last?

    As I'm typing this, my 2008 Ranger is 60 miles from hitting the 200,000 mile mark and I bought my Ranger new back in 2008. I have been good about keeping the oil changed every 4,000 to 5,000 miles and was wondering how long does the duratec 2.3L last if it is well maintained?

    Back up lights

    I don't know if this is the right section to put this in. I have been having an issue with my reverse lights not coming on and when they do, it is once in a while. I checked the fuse and it's good and put new bulbs in and still having an issue. So I am thinking it's the back up switch as...

    I used 2721 in mine just like pjtoledo did in his, so yours should take the same.

    Another Dash light bulb Question

    I had to replace the bulbs in the instrument panel for my 2008 Ranger and it is not really that hard to do and I imagine the instrument panel in your Ranger is the same as mine, it is just a lot of screws you got to remove. If you do replace the bulbs yourself, take your time and it is not that...

    I have almost 194,000 miles on my 2008 2.3L and haven't had any issues with the timing chain as of yet and I have been real good of keeping the oil changed between 4,000 to 5,000 miles.

    2.3L ('02-'11) Water pump question

    My 2008 Ranger is approaching 193,000 miles and I bought my Ranger new back in 2008 and it still has the original water pump on the engine and was wondering if the water pump on the duratec engines actually last that long or have I been extremely lucky that the water pump has lasted this long so...

    Will it hurt my engine or not?

    My 2008 Ranger 2.3L is recommended to run on 87 octane gas and have been wondering IF using 89 octane or maybe 93 octane gas for one full tank of gas will hurt it in any way? The engine has almost 189,000 miles on it.

    I might take her on a trip.

    I have been thinking about taking a five hour trip to Tennessee this week and all the local car rental places near me are out of rental vehicles and I didn't have time to get my Ranger in to a mechanic to have it thoroughly checked over and that is why that I wanted to rent a vehicle. Since I...

    2.3L ('02-'11) 2.3 L I4 and camper top

    I once had a 1984 Ranger that was a 2.0L 4 cylinder 4 speed short bed that I bought a used cap for the bed and I noticed there wasn't much a difference in power if at all since it was already underpowered to begin with.

    Ford sending Ohio jobs to Mexico

    I know the feeling. I worked at Campbell Hausfeld for a while and all the jobs were sent where else, China. I'm still working at the same building with a different company now.
