    99 Ranger multiple issues

    If he fixes the brakes he said the price would go up. I'm not confident that he can fix the brakes because if he could why hasn't he? I'm not really set on buying but as far the body goes there isn't much rust( a plus) which is odd because the front bumper is badly rusted, as in the left corner...

    99 Ranger multiple issues

    Most trucks here are between 1500-2500 with high miles and decent amount of rust. I looked at one that the frame had a huge crack listed for $1500. I pointed out the frame crack and the seller said " that's really not a big deal" I walked away and he posted the truck sold 2 days later. I haven't...

    99 Ranger multiple issues

    It seemed to be just soft but also pretty low. I only drove it around a mall parking lot. When I said I wanted to drive it he jumped behind wheel to drive and I said " No, I am going to drive." He was like "oh,ok" First thing I noticed was the soft low brake pedal. I guess my question is...

    99 Ranger multiple issues

    That is initially what I think is wrong with the brakes. The owner said he checked wire/connections at VSSand replaced it and said everything looked good. He said a mechanic buddy did the rears and was bled properly. His next step was to replace the front calipers. He thinks they are bad but...

    sold a car on craigs list

    So I sold a car I had saved for my daughter. She did not want it because it was a 5spd. I listed it on craigs list. A buyer was interested, came and test drove it, hooked up his phone with torque app, and liked the car. I think it is sold, not quite. He wants to come back and see a cold start...

    Ford Techs

    My employer has 2 c-max hybrids. They have asked me if I would be interested in maintaining/fixing these cars. I have never worked on one. I do not know too much about the systems and how they work with one another. My question is this, did you receive special training? I am assuming that you...

    Anyone have a cabin they get away to?

    My parents have a place. My in-laws did until last year when a family friend changed some wiring and it caught fire and became a total loss. No insurance on it either. The cabin was built in the 1940's. The family had owned it for 56 yrs.
