    2.5L ('98-'01) Stuck engine RPMs until dead stop - gone fishing

    The truck is a '98 XLT with the 2.5l 4cyl, manual. When driving (hot or cold, highway or in town, 25ft or 200 miles) the engine speed stays high, or goes higher, when depressing the clutch. It will stay there, no matter what, never come down, until the truck comes to a dead stop. I've coasted...
  3. 99 2.5L, rough idol and misfiring during acceleration and driving

    This problem has been around since I bought my Ranger, but it also comes and goes, so I always end up forgetting about it but now it seems like it’s back and is going to stay. When it first started misfiring, I replaced the MAF sensor, air filter, plugs and plug wires, and it ran perfectly...
  4. 98 vs 99 engine wiring harness

    Thank you for any help I receive before hand. I have a bad harness on my 99. I have looked around, but my harness is discontinued, and i hate to rebuild the one I have. I found one for a 98 that looks the same from what Ican tell. Both are for 2.5l manuals. My 1999 part number is...
  5. 98 2.5L engine races when clutch is engaged. very annoying PLEASE HELP

    Hello I'm Edward and I recently bought this 98 Ranger. While driving around town, when I press in the clutch to downshift or to stop, the engine revs up real high without even on the throttle. (Probably 3500 4000 RPM) When I come to a stop or press the throttle the truck goes down to an idle...

  7. Wrong ECM to motor?

    Bought a '97 Ranger, 2.3L, 5spd 8 mo's ago. Just found out that it had a '98 2.5L put in it. We've had emissions code problems and now can't even drive it in Georgia. Seems the Cardone rebuilt ECM is incorrect unit. Problem: I was told that Ford has no records past 2000 of motor/vehicle codes...

    i recently found on kijiji.ca a 2000 ford ranger reg cab short bed 5spd for $1500 (in my area that what you pay for a decent early 90's ranger) what worryies me is that the engine has 295000km or 183000mi and it appears to have been well maintained. i have looked and a long block 2.5 is around...
  9. 2000 2.5L idle issue not IAC TPS or connector

    I'm wondering if anyone has had a high idle issue that is not due to a bad TPS, IAC, or TPS connector as I have seen on the other related posts? In my 2000 2.5L, 2wd manual trans, 87,000 original miles, I have replaced the IAC and the TPS first with no change and then the TPS connector($130 out...
