I just bought an '85 Ranger 2.8L 6 CYL 2 BBL 2WD with 66K miles...I've been going thru the manual for the basics...oil/filter, transmission fluid, rear diff fluid and spark plugs/distributor cap. Are all those applications still the same? Any updates...where can I find them?

And the most important question...what do I need to pay attention to on an
'85 Ranger...what can I expect to have problems/issues with?

Thanks in advance for all your help,

Erik

Welcome, I would make sure the coolant is clean and fresh. Wix sells test strips you can test the protection level, PH and nitrates or if it looks dirty you can just flush the cooling system and a new coolant. You should post some pictures of your Ranger.
