    1987 Ranger 4x4 - My 1st Truck

    Decided to make a thread on my 87 Ford Ranger 2.9L 4x4 to keep track of what I've done to it and to get help fixing it up. Bought this truck back on Halloween of 2016 as my 1st car for high school and daily drove it until August 2017 when I replaced it with an 03 VW Passat for the better MPG. I...
  2. Temp Gauge Not Working

    Hi there! I bought a 1987 Ranger last month and am IN LOVE. She's perfect, except, the temperature gauge on the dash doesn't work. It's always pointing to the lowest possible "C" position. Before I get ripped off by one of the local shops (not a lot of options in this small town), can...
  3. 1987 2.9l Stalling

    I've got a 1987 Ranger 2.9L that typically likes to stall at idle after getting warm, though it has stalled once when going up a hill at near full throttle. At first, I thought it was a dirty throttle body, then the idle air control valve, then broken vacuum lines, then the TFI module. I've...

    You may have seen my previous posts about getting the fitting that is stuck in the slave cylinder out. Well now I've tried about every reverse drill bit, and easy out that is even remotely small enough to even think about using. (also broke 3 drill bits :lame:). So I'm about give up after...
