1992 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB


Review

I have had only two mechanical
problems with it in 10 years. AC
compressor and front locking hubs. The
2.9 liter 6 has always had enough
power, and I do not understand why
anyone needs the 4 liter engine. I get
22 mpg on the highway. (Automatic
transmission). I have loaded this
truck down on several occasions with
no problem. Towing 2000 lbs you don't
even know it's back there. I
consistantly drive 5 hours at a time
in it and my 6'2" frame gets a bit
stiff, but no permanent damage. Other
than change the fluids, I haven't done
a thing to the engine in 95000 miles.


Best Features

Heavy payload package. Ride clearance. Rides like a truck, not a car. Turning radius. Power steering. Always starts and goes. Great city and country truck.


Worst Features

Front automatic locking hub redesign.

Review

I wanted a economical, low maintence
rear wheel drive trk. majot maint at
165K, new frt end, all (radiator ect)
new cooling system, 4 ac systems have
died(Seems poor desgin, get extd warr
for ac)lacks pwr for long hwy drives,
mechanic and i did not realize that
pulling out the(for clutch replacmnt)
stick shift made it seem like
transmission was dead, despite putting
it back in. We were about to get a new
trans before a better mechanic
reinserted it the right way. gd brks,gd
elect sys,ok paint, fluid leaks are
prblm. Spare tire just rots on holder.
little noisy,


Best Features

Decent city ride, seats, height of truck, 20 gal fuel tnk,


Worst Features

I know some people have replaced the manual transmission due to poor understanding of a quirky stick shift mechanism, better gaskets, stainless steel water pump,child locks,

Review

Truck has generally been
good.Passenger window burst while
under warranty, oil pan gasket slipped
and need to be replaced, rear brakes
exploded (spring?), easy fix, door
pilar is rusting at base, fuel gauge
is not working, original tires lasted
a long time. Don't dare to use the
spare as permanent tire since carrier
cut into side of tire.


Best Features

Small turning radius, easy parking, high seat makes for good visibility. Original radio works fine.


Worst Features

Gains horse power in cool weather, maybe cool the air to the engine in hot weather?

Review

Had 162K before manual trans failed due
to rubber boot that slowly leaked trans
oil. Must check your trans oil
periodically. Otherwise, the 3L engine
is powerful and very reliable. Only did
regular maintenance on it. Only install
OEM fuel pump and not aftermarket. Try
to cut thru bed or take off bed to
access pump.
