  1. Swapping a 3.0L into my 99 Ranger

    Hey All- I'm a total Noob here. I've already found some GREAT information on past articles and the Tech Library which has helped me so far. I recently bought a '99 with a 2.3L I4 manual which is great for cruising around the city, but it's just lacking. I found a good deal on a 99 V6 3.0L...
  2. 3.0l SHO

  3. EGR Tube - 1993

    I need help identifying a replacement for this EGR Tube. It's fairly rotted with holes, so I don't think repairing/welding the old one will work well. '93 3.0L V6, 4WD, AT I "think" I found the Ford replacement part on their webpage, but none of the online parts diagrams match. Most of the...
  4. Wanted: 98' 3.0L Engine...

    My truck has close to 300,000 miles on the engine and it still runs good, but I want to see if anyone is selling a 3.0L that would fit into my 98' 2WD. Anything that's cheap and in good shape I would probably take. I really want something I can rebuild, clean up and plug and play it into the...

  8. Anyone else have this problem? Help

    I have had this 93 4x4 supercab for about 4 months now and I freaking love it. The only thing that has been bothering me is a weird rough idle slash rev. When I first got it the idle was rough and about 1200 to 1600 rpm is would run like it was misfiring, but no codes. It would vibrate and...
  9. Replacing motor mounts on a 2000 Ranger 4X4 with the 3.0

    Hi folks, First time poster here. I did a forum search, but did not come up anything useful. I am replacing the motor mounts in my 2000 Ranger 4X4 with the 3.0. I sprayed the studs and nuts with PB Blaster a few days ago. Is there anything I need to be aware of when doing this job? Do I...
  10. Battery Drain

    1991 Ranger XLT 3.0L It's been going on for about a month now. I'll have to jump it every morning after it's been left overnight. (I now just leave one side of the battery disconnected overnight so I don't have to waste 15 minutes jumping it.) The battery was replaced in December and I've had...
  11. Ranger a4l4 behind 3.0 slow reverse + hard 1-2

    Hey guys, this is my first post on TRS and I love this site, but I'm not finding all the info I am looking for. The slow reverse engagement and clunk seem to be fixed by the transgo a4ld-jr kit, but that kit doesn't mention the hard 1st to 2nd shift I am experiencing. It goes 1-2 hard MOST times...
