    Air Conditioning system leak 1994 4.0L Ranger.

    Hello all, I have a '94 Ranger 4.0L. A/C system did not work on purchase, compressor would not engage. I decided to start by adding R-134a until system pressure was within specification, compressor came on as expected, cold air out of the cabin vents. I was really hoping I got off easy. Fast...
  2. 1993 4.0 low idle, wavers up and down

    Alright so as the title says, my truck idles pretty low once warmed up, and it wavers up and down about 100 rpm. It's especially bad with the A/C on, sometimes it drops under 500 rpm and the truck shudders a bit. Here's a vid, vertical vid warning, my bad...
  3. A/C quick cycle

    Symptoms: On a seemingly full charge of refrigerant, at idle, the A/C clutch kicks on for a roughly a second, then disengages for about 5 seconds, then the cycle repeats. There is no cool air blowing. I watch the pressure gauge and it drops when the compressor turns on,the pressure switch...
  4. 1998 ranger problem child

    I have a 1998 ranger xlt 4.0l 5 speed 4wd truck with cranked torsion bars and 33s and it has three problems. This is going to be an essay but most of these threads are just asking questions the publisher should put out there to begin with. Check engine light reads lean banks. Shit gas mileage...
  5. A/C Low Side Ball-Bearing Valve Replacement

    I just bought a low side valve that screws into the top of the a/c accumulator on my 1997 Ranger. Quick question: How is the frick do I get the old valve removed? I tried simply taking a pair of pliers to the base of it and turning. That didn't do a thing. I figured I'll try putting some...
  6. A/C blowing hot with R-134a charge

    I've got a 1988 Ranger with the 2.9 V6. My problem is that my A/C is blowing hot air, but there is a charge of R-134a in the system (it was converted many years ago and has worked on and off since). The compressor was replaced about 3 years ago and I believe a few other components are new to...

  8. Help Needed

    I've noticed a few things start to go wrong with my '96 Ranger recently and since I'm not an expert at anything automotive, I thought I might try this forum and see if anyone might be able to help. I first noticed that the a/c in my truck would get hot when going up hills or pushing the truck a...
  9. 97 Ranger Electrical - Blower Motor/AC

    I have a 97 Ranger 4cyl 5spd manual. Since I got the truck the lowest speed on the blower has not worked, but it wasn't a big deal. A few days ago, I turned off the truck with the AC running just fine on med/high. I get back in the truck and cannot get the key to turn in either direction...
  10. AC compressor clicking

    Looking for some advice. I have a few questions, all AC related. It will be a little long winded, so I thank you if you make it all the way through. The compressor on my 2002 Ranger (175K miles) has a steady clicking sound when the clutch is engaged and the truck is at idle. When I rev the...

  12. A/C help!

    I was curious how many actual rubber hoses come on the A/C system in my 1990 Ranger with the 4 Liter engine... I have looked all online, and found no diagrams at all. Main brand auto stores like napa and autozone sell the Discharge and suction hose, but is that all ? It can't be. Right? read on...

    I have a 1998 ford ranger with the 2.5l engine. Very amazing vehicle but the a/c does not work. Ive had some very smart a/c people tell me to jumper the pins in the switches and if the compressor kicks on then my switches are bad but i have jumpered the switches and still the compressor wont...
  14. 92 2.3 AC problems

    I just bought this truck for work, so I honestly don't know much about it. When I went to look at it before I bought it, the AC worked fine. I had to put a radiator in it, then drove it home. After I got home, the AC stopped working. Light on the control panel comes on, but nothing beyond that...

    All, I'm trying to retro-fit my 94 Ranger 2.3L, Manual Trans, Standard Steering with A/C. I have followed the A/C 101 article in the tech Library and read most all posts in the forum of heating and A/c but, I can not find info on weather or not there is a different bracket for an 2.3L with...
