    2.5L ('98-'01) Disconnect Air Conditioning Before Pulling Engine?

    Getting ready to pull my 2.5L ranger engine for some repairs. Can the AC compressor and hoses be unbolted and carefully moved out of the way while the engine is being pulled and reinstalled without having to open the AC system? Has anyone done it this way and did it make the job a lot more...
  2. A.c making a rattling sound

    I have a 1996 4.0 manual ranger, when the ac is off it sounds fine, but when I turn my a.c. On it sounds like the pulley is making a ringing/rattling sound but only when the compressor kicks in, it’s not a constant sound and only does it for a couple seconds at a time. Also my a.c. Will not get...

    Advice Needed For Electric Fan

    I got a 94 Ranger with a 2300 and A/C. I just discovered that a fan blade has broken off. I what to switch to an electric fan. Any suggestions on which fans/controllers are the most reliable?
  4. 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...
  5. AC not working, stuck on heat?

    So I'm trying to fix the AC so I can sell my 97 ranger and purchase a newer, 2003 ranger from a nearby neighbor. He said he would hold his ranger for a week. Down to business then. The car blows hot air all the time, regardless of the temperature setting. I'm aware that either the blend door...
  6. '99 Ranger 4.0 Air Won't Kick On unless wiring a jump

    Ok here is the deal. I have completely ran out of ideas. So last year my air worked just fine, ok. This year I turn the A/C on from inside the truck and, well nothing. We get the auto kick on and off of the compressor when you start the truck, but that is it. So we have tried jumping the...
  7. Clunk in steering wheel ONLY when AC is on and cold

    I am sorry if this is somewhere else in this forum but I could not figure how to narrow it down enough to find this topic if it is out there. Exactly what the title says. I only feel it in the steering wheel just driving down the road and little ripples in the road I can feel a sharp clunk in...

    Black death paranoia - advice sought

    Hi folks I found 3 or 4 black flecks about the size of a grain of salt, and a slightly bigger piece of white fuzz on the screen of the orifice. Should I be taking a chance not flushing? I don't have a flush rig, or I wouldn't be asking this. The system was last opened about 3 years ago. It has...
  9. Climate Control Issue 2008 Ranger

    I have a 2008 Ranger Sport 4L. Just recently I have noticed that I cannot control the temperature inside the vehicle. It just blows air at the outside temperature no matter if it's on hot or cold. The air conditioning doesn't work, neither does the heater. The fan itself seems to work...
