    1998, 2.5L ranger, 2WD, manual So I have had issues with the upstream O2 sensor since i got the truck over a year and a half ago. I dont exactly remember when it started throwing a code for it, maybe right after I bought it, certainly not long after I bought it. It seemed like it used to get...
  2. 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...

  8. The hunt for better MPG

    In my 88 ranger 2.3L I tend to average 23-26 mpg. However with rising gas prices I am searching ways to improve this. I have spent the last several hours researching the idea of a warm air intake. Does anyone have thoughts on how much if any boost to mpg would occur? Has anyone tried out a WAI...

    opinion: which gears for 2.3

    I've unexpectly had not one but two sets of 7.5 gears fall into my lap and now I'm not sure which set to run. I get to choose from 3.73 or 4.10's. Truck details are in the sig. It currently runs 3.54 gears and stock 205/75r14 (26x8) tires. Since moving to the city I don't plan to change tire...
