My truck started with a problem with the lights dimming out under acceleration. Also, gauge needles moving (vibration effect) while driving. All fuses are good and cannot see any shorts behind cluster. Battery and alternator were tested to be good. Finally, the lights did not come on for a day or two and then suddenly they just started to work again. I since replaced the light switch. Any ideas on the ... Read More

I am planning a cross-country move and will be towing my 1993 manual-transmission Ford Ranger behind the moving truck. Do i need to disconnect the driveshaft ??

Sounds like you could have a bad battery...but did you clean your battery terminals. Also, if you have a volt meter, check the voltage at the battery when the engine is running. It should be about 13.6 volts DC to charge the battery properly.
I have replaced the alternator the sylinoid, but when I got to start it. It just clicks, could it need a new battery I can jump start it and it will run good, once turned off I have to re-jump it to get it to run again. I love my little truck just bought it, and I want to keep it. Could someone please give me some advice on this problem. ... Read More

Can someone please tell me how to remove the "Slave Cylinder Cable" from a 1993 Ford Ranger 5 speed manual transmission. I am doing a tranny swap and I have removed the old transmission but it is hanging from the truck by this cable.
The hood on my 1993 ford ranger catches but does not close down all the way. Is there an easy fix?
I just scored a 1993 Ford Ranger 4x4, 5-speed, extra cab for a measley $500. It needed/needs very little work ie: steering column (got one), cap (got one for $50), rear spring hangers (getting those installed next week). However, what I really want are the fog lights. There are holes in the plastic under bumper specifically designed for lights. Where can I get these lights without going to expensive dealer? Also, ... Read More

My '94 5-speed Ford Ranger truck with 109K miles on it originally belonged to my daughter. Once she got back from Iraq she gave me truck as she could not afford the gas to go back and forth to work. Anyway, the manual transmission now seems to be having a problem and I'm looking for some suggestions as I do not know very much about trucks. The manual transmission has a ... Read More

My husband has a 1993 Ford Ranger, it has a manual trany. He needs to know how to open the bleeder valve on the hydraulic clutch. Does anyone know? Thank you!!!!
There are much better Ford Ranger forums out there which contain lots of enthusiasts who have done lots to their Rangers. Like a 3.0l Ranger pulling in low 16 second quarter miles. It all depends on how far you want to go. Have you ever looked at the exhaust ports, or your exhaust manifold? There is clear oportunity for improvement, but it will cost money and time. But the point that ... Read More
I own a 1993 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab. I have found that when I fill the gas tank that it overfills from underneath the bed. I can't figure out what it could be because it is not coming up the fill hose. Any help would be appreiciated.
"Reliable, powerful, cheap" Choose two. This seems to be the best way to pick your truck. Ranger is cheap and powerful, Tacoma is reliable and powerful, Nissan is cheap and reliable, S10 is cheap. Here's my opinions on this: Ranger: If you want a cheap truck, you might as well buy this one. Yeah, it's been a bestseller for 18 years, and yes, it may have the strongest naturally aspirated V6 ...

I have to say this forum is great. Lots of info on various trucks. Although it should only be for pickups, especially Tacos and Rangers. Can't see why anyone would compare a an SUV to a compact pickup, but everyone has a right to their opinions. The trucks I've owned below and opinions are based on my experiences. I wanted to share them with everyone. My first truck was great. It ... Read More
bolivar: You're probably right. I bought the 2001 but kept my 1993 regular cab 2.3L (multicar insurance discount). The old truck has 144k, and has had nothing but routine maintenance, and is still getting the same mileage as when i bought it at 17k, ~25mpg summer, 20 winter. It's one solidly built vehicle, and it was on the basis of that experience that I bought another Ranger. Of course, there are ... Read More
I will be performing my own experiment. I will be purchasing a new vehicle in the early part of 2003. I own a 1993 Ranger with 141,000 miles on it, and it has been very reliable and trustworthy.

I own a 1993 Ford ranger, 2.3l 4spd automatic with just under 140,000 miles. I think a lot has changed since then. My engine has two spark plugs per cyclinder. The Ranger then switched to a larger stroke (I believe offhand) to make it a 2.5l. Then the 2.3l was reengineered with 4 valves per cylinder, and I believe still 1 spark plug per cylinder. But the gas milage should be ... Read More

This would be the fastest Ranger, and with the auto, the best towing Ranger. Yet, I do not even see a 4.0L offered in a regular cab model that isn't a 4wd. How can Ford crow about 6070 lbs of towing ability, yet NOT offer a truck with the appropriate options to achieve this rating? Maybe it's just me, but Edmunds, MSN, carsdirect, etc., and the dealership's brochures do not show ... Read More
