    Why did a new Gas Tank Fill hose go bad?

    Why on earth would you purchase this from Amazon? Go to your local parts store & purchase a piece of either Gates, Continental or Goodyear gasoline approved single braided nitrile delivery hose. https://www.gates.com/us/en/fluid-power/engine-hose/fuel-fill-hose.p.4271-000000-000001.html

    No oil pressure

    It's a fair bet to assume that at the machine shop that built the engine they would use a mechanical pressure gauge & not an electrical gauge to monitor the pressure, try doing the same.

    led headlight bulb on 94 ranger

    Yes they do.......I see that your truck is an 04? check the plastic bulb retainers for their condition, as they age the molded *fingers* that hold the bulb in place become brittle & will snap off.

    Car ramps

    I have a set of those same composite ramps. They work well, unlike the metal ramps they tend to remain stationary when one begins to drive a vehicle up onto them. The steel set I also have are useless on a concrete surface as they will not stay in place when a load is driven up onto them, they...

    led headlight bulb on 94 ranger

    Well, I have led headlamps installed....I can say truthfully that they do provide more illumination on the road directly in front of the truck. The light they cast down the road lights up signs significantly better than the lowly 9007 halogens, they are 6000k, but they are too white for my...

    led headlight bulb on 94 ranger

    Not advised, hid's in a regualr headlamp will thro the light everywhere, there's no casper shield around the filament to direct the light. The lumens output is so bright they will blind oncoming traffic.

    Transmission Swap on 1999 B3000 2WD

    I can't speak to the Tasca parts identification, when I had the trans out 4 yrs ago to replace the converter which suffered a lockup failure due to the shaft bearing the disc rides on I had to replace that same input shaft seal. It's a common part to the 4r44e, 5r44e, I just picked one up at the...

    Transmission Swap on 1999 B3000 2WD

    No, that O ring is not the proper converter shaft seal, the replacement is a teflon O ring, the ring is *square*, it is a complete circle, it has to be lubed, then carefully pushed onto the converter input shaft into the recess. That ring seals the oil into the converter internals & prevents...

    2.3L ('83-'97) Oil Capacity

    Are you making use of the small or large oil filter? If memory serves one can fit both the *Fram* or equivalent XG3600 (small) or the *Fram* or equivalent XG8A (large) filter.

    2.3L ('83-'97) Oil Capacity

    Whatever volume of oil you have to purchase to keep the fluid level near the upper limit of the dipstick hash mark. I don't personally like Walmart's Supertech, it is manufactured by Warren Oil..........not my 1st choice......

    2002 3.0 Automatic Transmission Question

    I take it that your truck does not have the optional mounted trans cooler? Hard to miss, in front of the A/C condenser, mounted on the passenger side of the rad header.

    2002 3.0 Automatic Transmission Question

    One would not need a very large stand alone trans cooler, something like the Tru-cool L7B low pressure drop would do fine. It's GVW is far more than you'll ever need, it's compact, easy to install.

    AC Evaporator leaking from coolant flush?...

    True...if one does not have the stat installed the engine temp will remain quite low for the reasons given you. While you were operating the vehicle with the A/C engaged.....what position was the selector in? max A/C by any chance? If so the vacuum operated water control shutoff valve on top...
