  1. stalls out when wet/cold until warm

    :annoyed: 2003 xlt w/V6 4sp manal No error codes to read, but here's what happens: If it's been raining all night, I start it up, if I press the gas, it will stall until the engine has warmed a little. If I try & take off, it'll stall every time until warmed. Same seems to happen when it's...
  2. Inconsistent Coolant Temperature

    Not sure if the old signature I made a couple years ago will show, so I'll start with the specs. 2000 Ranger 2.5L I4 Lima Engine I replaced the thermostat and thermostat housing (that includes temp sensors) about a year ago with OEM Motorcraft parts. I noticed the winter after that, that the...
  3. Engine won't maintain temperature (too cold)

    I'm no stranger to a stuck thermostat. I've changed one in the past soon after purchasing my truck because the engine would not heat up. As this current winter settled in I noticed the same problem. Naturally I thought the thermostat was stuck so I checked and sure enough it was. The problem is...

    5R55E Buzz when cold

    Hello, My transmission makes a buzzing, almost a cavitation, noise at start up in the mornings and after it has sat for a few hours. It seems to be worse when the ambient temperature is low (40's). The sound is temporarily muted as I move the shifter from P to R to D. This noise goes away...

  7. Cooling Problem

    I have noticed that my 96 4.0 Ranger is running hot. I have already replaced the thermostat a couple of weeks ago and tried to backflush the radiator today the best I could. The upper hose is hot while the lower hose is cold. Also, the majority of the cooling fins are cold as well. Top is hot...
  8. Vacuum Leak stock 2.8

    Okay, so the weather is cooling down around here (though it's Phoenix, so that means 40s overnight), and it's causing my bone-stock 84 BII to idle HORRIBLY first thing in the morning. I've been driving it with a known vacuum leak for months now 'cause I just got tired of looking for it, but I'm...
