leak


  1. Chapap

    Unplugged vacuum line- runs better - SOLVED: IAC

    I just replaced injectors and PCV valve. I pulled the top half of the intake manifold to do it. Old injectors truly need to be replaced. Now the truck needs some gas to start and almost dies when going down to idle. It catches itself and gets to a decent idle. So what makes it better? Pulling a...
  2. AC Duct work question, plus restoration progress update: more rust, leaks, quarter windows, and the dashboard!

    I hope the pandemic has been kind to most of you. Little by little, I've been chipping away at the B2. After many failed attempts, I finally got the rear seats out which was the only thing (minus the dash) keeping me from having a stripped interior. The two bolts with T50 heads right by the...
  3. Coolant leaking out passenger side of head

    Noticed some antifreeze under my 96 2.3 today and noticed a very consistent flow of coolant coming from the passenger side of the head where it meets the block. I’m guessing this means the head gasket is blown but I don’t see any water in oil, the truck has not overheated since I have owned it...

  5. 94 a4ld leak that disappeared

    Hi. I was given a 94 B4000 with less than 50K on it. It had been sitting for a long time and the thing wasn't shifting right, but I saw it improving the more I drove it. I finally felt comfortable enough to pull the Boy Scout Trailer, which is a 12 foot single axle enclosed trailer. Not the...

  7. Gasoline smell in garage

    Sorry if wrong forum, could not find this topic under the help headings. Occasionally I note a vague gasoline smell by the driver door of my '95 Ranger. This is in the garage only, never experience it anywhere else. I got under the truck with bright lights and a mini video camera and tried...
  8. Losing coolant, not burning

    '96 2.3L 2WD over 200k mi Never checked the actual radiator fluid except for when I bought the truck 2 months ago. I've always just looked at the resivour. About 3 weeks ago I noticed it was empty but that turned out to be the hose got disconnected rubbing against the air intake so I used a...
  9. Steam from engine bay? Head gasket?

    First post, looking for some help. I have a '90 ranger, manual, and the previous owner put radiator stop leak in the coolant, which I didn't know about until I started running higher temps (still in the normal) through the death valley in CA, and boiled a ton of coolant out the reservoir when I...
  10. Starting issues, repeated leaks in heater core valve

    Update: My video and post refer to the leak as a possible cause for my starting issues. I just realized the starter and the leaking valve are on opposite sides. Trouble still there, likely the starter then, and the leak as a separate issue... Why does that valve keep going bad? I had trouble...

    Hi All, Part questions, part edjumuhcation, it's ...questi-muhcation! I have a 99 3.0L 4x4 off road Ranger bought two months ago. When I bought it the ABS light was on. Since the rear speed sensor (VSS) seems to be a common cause & cheap part, I figured I'd start with the low-hanging...

  15. Leak coming from soft plug in engine

    Hey guys, this morning I went out to my truck and noticed that ALL of my antifreeze had leaked out. After jacking it up I noticed that the leak had originated from one of the soft plugs on the passenger side. After consulting with my Dad, the only thing we can think to do is pull the engine and...

  17. 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...
