  1. 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...

    Aftermarket Cold Air Intakes?

Unfortunately, any stock units are either smashed to pieces, or just plain missing on the trucks at my local junkyard. And I...

Although I'm not sure if my '86 computer can do that or not. I'd like to be able to disconnect the EGR to...

  6. gasket replacement question

    I have a 96' 4.0 Ranger that a buddy gave to me as it was getting codes and wouldn't pass inspection. I have no experience with Rangers. The dealership quoted 1400 to fix. They had diagnosed a leaking intake manifold gasket. I removed the upper gasket, and saw that the gasket was indeed bad...

  11. Turns over, won't catch

    Hello all, The title says it all. Over the course of the past month or so, my Ranger has slowly turned itself into a giant paper weight. It started with a high/rough idle. It would start up very high on startup (cold only), and quickly drop to a more normal rpm. I don't have a tach, so...
