    i hooked up the red cable to the smaller bolt on the starter, the silver one and it won’t work, do i need to hook it to the gold terminal? or do they both serve a purpose like does one of them need to be grounded??
  5. Oil Galley Pathing? I have timing guide debris in an oil galley, trying to fish it out!

    As the title says, no idea how, but I got a little round chunk of old timing guide into an oil galley. Found it after a complete rebuild, primed the motor and had no oil to the driver side head. Tried back flushing, it was rock solid. Put 120psi to it and got it to clear, but quickly became...

    Timeline of what happened: - Bought 1991 Ford Explorer 4.0 ohv / 5spd in January 2021 in good condition. - Starter gives out a couple months later, seemingly just due to age. Replaced it with a napa reman. All is fine for a few months. - Engine starts having a pinging issue under load...

    2004 Ford ranger 4.0 5 speed 4x4. 178k miles. All stock components. Just picked up this truck, has a odd condition rattle noise. It only rattles when revving down from above 2600, doesn't rattle on cold start. Doesn't rattle on idol. Rev less than 2600 and it won't rattle but when revved up...

  17. Gas Mileage

    So I drive a 2000 Ranger 4.0L V6 4x4 with just over 180k on it. Y'all know how many great things there are about the 4.0, but gas mileage is definitely not one of them! I'm averaging I'd say around 14.7-15 MPG, and the highest I've gotten is around 16.5. This is a bit problematic, since I drive...
