    can someone explain why certain 4.0’s have a MAP sensor?

    certain 4.0’s in the junkyard, specifically 1990 and 1991, have a MAP sensor (and the MAF sensor) and a plug for it on the wiring harness. in every picture i see of a 4.0 with the MAP the vacuum line to the sensor is not even hooked up and has a small white piece on it. furthermore, i took the...
  2. Wanted Driver side window

    I need the front driver side window for 1990 ranger xlt. I was told one out of a bronco would work too. Anything from between at least 1988 to 1992 would work. I'm located in SC and I can't travel out of state so if it could be shipped or somebody meet me locally that would be great. Money is...
  3. 2.3L ('83-'97) Help

    Can somebody tell me what this is. I took out my glove box and seen that this was corroded and I have no idea what this is. Do I need to replace this or could I just clean it up with a wire brush?

    SOLVED: 1990 Bii 2.9 FAILED CA SMOG!

    Hey there all! I just got back from a failed smog test. As you can see I got a pass on everything except my HC ppm at 15 mph and my NO ppm at both 15 and 25 mph. It has a fresh new o2 sensor and last i checked i had no codes. And they passed me on the OBD system check. I have not replaced the...

    SOLVED: Transfer case end spraying fluid on undercarriage?

    Hey there. 1990 Bii project trying to get to body restore but I'm having 4x4 and apparently transfer case end issue. If you check the attached photo, it appears that I have a leak at what I assume is the rubber piece and it's spraying my undercarriage something fierce. Any idea what the part is...

    SOLVED: 1990 2.9 open port on engine near Oil Sender.

    What is this opening on my 2.9? I got down there to clean and change the oil sender unit and noticed there's a deeply recessed port. Not sure if it's the norm and I'm just overreacting but I don't want to run to pick n pull to check without asking first. Any clue what this is and if there should...

  8. New from Chandler Arizona

    Hello from Arizona. I've had several Rangers over the years and recently picked up my newest Ranger. It is a 1990 stripped out 2.3 l 5-speed with over 300,000 miles. I use it as my daily driver.

    Are these stock or am i just living in a hole...?

    OK! I'm new here, and new to the ranger/ford scene. Usually a GM person, but I do have a soft spot for early '90's and older Ford Pickups, so please be a dick if you must, but lets not drag on shall we. This is my 1990 2.3L Lima. Has the 5spd, no 4wd. Are the steps on the side factory/an extra...

  11. 2.3L ('83-'97) Maybe someone can point me in the right direction

    Hi new to the site but have used this in the past to help figure out some things. I’ve got a 90 ranger, 2.3 manual and I’ve got an issue I can’t seem to pin point. It doesn’t happen all the time or at certain times but usually in 4/5 gear at anything over 3000rpms it’s seems to bog down(that’s...

    1990 Ford Ranger 2.3 Crankshaft Sensor

    So I bought this truck over a year ago. Wiring was a mess when I got it. Looks like a rats nest. The truck started stuttering a couple months ago, and completely died the other day. Signs point to the Crank sensor. It'll start, run like crap, and then stumble and stall. I have a question about...

  16. The $350 Immaculate Bronco II

    An introduction to me and my second recently acquired Bronco II- I might have found the greatest deal on any Bronco II, ever. It was purchased in 1990 to be towed behind and RV, and only got about 50,000 of actual road time before I got it a few days ago for $350... with 157k on the odo. It...
  17. 1989 2.9l 4x4 swap to 1990 4.0l thats also had 4x4

    So i pulled a 4.0l out of a 90 and grabbed the harness and ECU and believe i grabbed the map sensor since its speed density. What is the rest i need to convert and does my 89 have trans cooler or should i pull that from the donor truck as well, both are auto's and same transmission. So pretty...

  19. Whats up!

    Hey everyone, I'm new to your forum (came over from FRF). A few weeks ago I picked up a very clean 1990 Ranger XLT 4x4 5 speed (overdrive) with a 2.9L v6. My dad had one just like it when I was growing up, so when I found this baby on craigslist... I just had to have it. With this crappy...
  20. Cab gets hot

    I have a 1990 ranger V6 2.9L. The cab gets particularly hot in the summer, and it feels as though heat is coming from the tranny housing under the gear shifters. I'm being told it could be my exhaust manifold, and to get it checked. My exhaust was done a year ago, and it always passes air...
