    1K post! And sold ranger

    I'd just like to share that i finally attained my 1000th post! :yahoo: It's also sad because I sold my ranger :sad: 2wd just wouldn't cut it for Moscw winters and I had hopes of finding a 3rd gen 4.0 4wd 5spd but everything that surfaced was way over priced and had too many miles. So a few...

    I'm puzzled

    whenever i'm on the freeway and i punch the throttle to the floor the theft light lights up. but its a dim light which leads me to belive it is a bulb near the theft light causing the theft icon to appear to illuminate, but why it illuminates when i floor it is beyond my comprehension at this...

    P1432 code please help

    so my truck keeps throwing this code, i believe it stands for thermostat heater control curcuit open, or something close to that, and i dont know whats causing it. It seems to pop up right after im driving the truck hard (4k rpms- redline). What is causing this? Truck is an 02 reg cab 5 speed.

    Didnt know they made these I thought ford didn't manufacture a 4 cyl 4x4 for this generation, let alone a 4 cyl 4x4 ext cab. If it's real it's probably slow as shit, but i'd still buy it. WAY overpriced though if it's real. EDIT: just found another one haha...

    jerking on accel/decel

    I didn't know where to put this because I don't know which part of my truck is having the problem. I dont know if its even a problem at all I just thought I'd check. First, the specs on my truck: 02 duratec 2wd 5spd bone stock so if I'm driving along in any gear and I let my foot off the gas...

    duratec guys inquire within

    I just got an 02 ranger w/ the 2.3 duratec, and seeing as how I like to do exhaust setups on my vehicles, I figured this one would be no different. The problem is I have no clue what sounds good on this engine, since its basically a rice burner. I liked the flowmaster on my 2.3 lima, but of...

    Rose2300's Build Thread

    So in feb I sold my first ranger, a 95 b2300: To get this, an 03 explorer sport 2wd: Then after a month I sold it because I hated the auto trans, and I was driving a 93 chevy 3500 6.5 diesel for the last 3 months (which sucked). Now finally today I got another ranger, an 02 reg cab 2wd 4...

    5r55e Slight shift flare when warm

    well I think i have the 2-3 shift flare after the truck is warmed up. does this need to be addressed immediately? i can tell the rpms rise but its very minute, probably around 100-200 rpms. from what i have heard this is actually normal or am I mistaken??

    Is this normal?

    I just bought an 03 explorer sport with the 5r55e trans. I'm new to rbv autos so I don't know if this is normal or not. So when accelerating mildly, it shifts at around 2200-2400 rpm, and then the next gear engages at about the same rpm (except 4th to overdrive). I thought the rpms would drop...

    Might be looking at this, what should I look for? I'm probably going to check this out soon, and I was wondering what I should look for when I'm inspecting it, test driving, etc... It does have the manual transfer case!!! It does have 177k, is that a lot for the 4.0 or should it be ok? Price is...

    Pretty cool, huh? Probably runs like crap though. I've seen ads for this for the past couple years, but I think it has changed owners a few times since it was last posted and since i'm already browsing cl...
