  2. New coolant line leaking!

    Hello, I recently installed new transmission cooler lines and a new 4.0 radiator in 1987 bronco ii. Everything bolted in as it should. I wanted to have an upgraded coolant system. But now the top hose that goes into the radiator, squirts transmission fluid. I know they say to use thread sealant...
  3. Ford Ranger '86 2.9L Knock Sensor replacement questions

    Hi, I'm pretty new to fixing vehicles but am learning fast. I've had this 86 ranger XLT 2WD for a little under a year and been fixing small things here and there. I noticed recently that my knock sensor had been unplugged. Truck has been running well but I have no comparison. I plugged it back...

    Idle’s good, missing under load

    I just recently did a complete rebuild on my 2.9L. Almost everything under the hood is new. The truck idles great, but when under a load it’s missing at low speeds (lower rpm), but doesn’t miss at higher RPM’s. I removed the cats because they were clogged and put in a straight pipe. Never...
  7. Injectors not seated?

    Hi guys, new heads on a 1986 2.9L Bronco 2. The new injectors on the passenger side don't seem to sit as far down as the drivers side. We unbolted and rebolted the fuel rail a few times and we can't seem to get the passenger side injectors to go down any lower with or without the fuel rail being...

    Taking camber out of Twin I-Beam after 2" lift (1987 Ranger RWD)

    Hey there, I need some advice on how to bring out the camber after adding 2" spacers on the front end of my '87 Ranger RWD. I did the lift after putting some Cooper Discoverer AT 235/75r15s on. I took it in for an alignment and the shop told me they can't bring the positive camber out because my...

    The results of Sea Foam & Lucus Products in a 2.9L

    agAWXnT4-EQ You have likely seen this video already. For those that have not, this guy puts sea foam in the crank case, gas tank, and intake of his Ford Rangers 2.9L. The engine went from knocking like a diesel, to running smooth. Sea Foam has been discussed in this forum for years. But if...
  10. 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...

    '86 Ranger, The "Dank Tank" or "A Craigslist Failure Story"

    We need a separate forum for these. Not a 4x4, not a mini truck... Just a guy building up his Ranger! This has been a long time coming! I bought the truck in October from an old man who was trying to fix it up. He took me for a ride and I was satisfied. And before you ask, yes, I bought a...

    2.9L EGR Questions

    I have a '86 Ranger running a '87 V6 and want to check the EGR system. I've heard most cars can detect if the EGR is inactive/not connected and can correct timing, fuel, etc... accordingly. Although I'm not sure if my '86 computer can do that or not. I'd like to be able to disconnect the EGR to...

    Aftermarket Fuel Rail

    Has anyone ever found an aftermarket fuel rail for the 2.9l? Morana Racing makes one for the 4.0l but nothing comes up for the 2.9. I tried searching online, and within the forum but I was not able to find anything

    I have a 1989 ford ranger XLT 2.9L and the battery had been hooked up backwards. I have gotten it to the point where it will turn over but am getting no power to the fuel pump.

    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.

  17. 2.9l Ticks when I press on the gas

    My 92 ranger 2.9l has a ticking noise that has been bugging me. It is consistent with engine speed, but is only audible when the gas pedal is pressed. It does not matter how fast I am going, or if the engine is hot or cold. I would describe the sound as a really loud clicky pen. I can add about...

  20. Any Alabamians Need 2.9s?

    I know not many people keep 'em, but does anyone in Alabama want a 1989 2.9L from a B2? I did the 4.0 and the truck came with two 2.9s. The two engines, i could sell as a pair, because i have no idea if they work. I also have the engine harness for one 2.9. There is also a busted A4LD if anyone...
