I need help badly, i cant lose anymore work. Here is the deal, the previous owner didnt take very good care of this truck, the rear brakes kinda fell apart and dug their way into the drum, took me forever to get the drum off. In the process all the hardware kinda came out and i didnt see excactly how it was in there. I need to find a picture or ... Read More
ive purchased a 1990 ford ranger it has 16 inch rims on it now i want to take it back to origanal does anyone know what size they take
My ranger will go through the motions of starting, but it has no fire. I had one of the power packs checked and it was fine. Also I have no power going to my fuel pump. More specifically, I have no voltage on the safety switch on the passenger floor board. I think that my problem is either the ecc relay or the emc. My question is, where is the ecc ... Read More
Thanks for the information bolivar! I'll check it out.
The relays are usually beside or inside the fuse box under the hood. There may be 2 or 3 of these, many times they are identical. Fuel pump, power windows, etc. I would first pull all of them and clean the contacts. Then if still dead, start switching them around. If the fuel pump starts, you still don't know which one is bad, but you do know one is bad and ... Read More
Hey everyone! I've just brought my ranger out of a five year retirement for the sake of fuel mileage. It ran when I parked it but now I have no power to the fuel pump in the tank. My Chiltons manual shows a fuel pump relay but I can't seem to trace it down. Is the relay in the pump itself? All fuses are good and I can't find any bad ... Read More
haha Entertaining response. I realize my methods of maintenance on this truck are rather unorthodox, I do however, have extensive knowledge of how to do everything auto-related, I don't think, however, that this vehicle is one to actually put any effort towards. Besides, why should I put effort into maintaining a vehicle which someone didn't even bother to put effort into when designing it? An unfortunate Ranger it is indeed. -Ryan ... Read More
LOL!! But the cause of the problem could also be the solution. The sledgehammer that is. He should try to remove the drums using the exact method he used to install.
I don't have much to say about this post. Because I think the Host will delete what I want to say, and, at least, send me a warning email, probably suspend me, if I would say what I want to say. Actually, rather than you 'unfortunately owning' a Ranger, it appears an unfortunate Ranger is owned by you, a person with a sledge hammer.
I unfortunately own a 1990 ford ranger 2wd truck. While replacing the rear drums, neither would slide easily over the shoes, thus a sledge hammer was brought in. Now the entire rear axle is in a state of almost seizure, I'm assuming the shoes haven't retracted and are binding against the drums, or the drums are not seated squarely, despite dozens of heavy hits with a hammer. I've tried tightening the ... Read More
I'm planning on looking at a 1990 Ford Ranger 2wd 5spd std. Regular Cab pickup. I was wondering if this truck would have a 2.0 or a 2.3 4cyl engine. Are there any major points to be checking besides the obvious on these trucks? Thanks in Advance -Ryan
is it possible for a 97 ford ranger motor can work for a 90? seem's like a large jump... not sure if it will work or not, let me know thanks

I don't when to put gas in thats why i lose money so fast cause i ... Read More
i drive a 1990 Ford Ranger and i have had it for about 3 months. today i was drivin it and all of a sudden the tach shot up to 5000 RPM and then dropped until it read 0 RMP's. the truck will start and drive, but only goes about 10-15 MPH. if someone could help me, that would be fantastic
Yes, there are tricks to it; I learned the hard way: *You may need to take the drive shaft off. 1. Get the tank as empty as you can. 2. Disconnect the tank nozzle from the body where the fuel is pumped into the vehicle; usually 3 to 4 bolts or screws. 3. If you have a transmission jack, use it to support the tank while you work around it. *If ... Read More
Does anyone know where the fuel pump is on my 1990 ford ranger and how to take it off??????? I have looked every where
Hi we own a 1990 Ford Ranger..problem is that it suddenly died the other day and when we restarted it and put it into drive it died again. we have replaced the fuel filter and now it wont start. Plz any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
The Mazda truck is a twin of the Ranger, actually. Just a few interior options different, and small changes outside. The 3L has been around in the Ranger since about 1990. It seems to be a good, long-life motor. It will 'probably' ping on regular gas. Most all of them do, and Ford seems to never want to change the design to stop it. The pinging doesn't seem to cause ... Read More
the 2.9 was the engine ford put in the 4x4 rangers from 87 to 1990. in 1991 they went to the 3.0 which is a totally different engine that was designed for the taurus. the 2.9 is more of a truck engine...it gets its torque lower in rpms. the 3.0 is more reliable. i have a 4.0 (which IS a stroked 2.9) and it is a great engine...go for it!

tbunder: From what I gather, Toyota pickup didnt just get a name. It seems it was a complete redesign of a truck, with new pricing and everything. Thats why the sales went down. You can expect the same thing with new Ranger in 2003 and with new Tacoma. As far as engines go: you said Tacoma I4s were severely underpowered. So in a comparison, Ford's I4 is really really bad. And ... Read More
