1993 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I had my ranger for six years and it
was recently totaled. Up to this
point it was running great. I bought
it at 104,000 miles and it would still
be on the rode with 193,500 miles if
it weren't for that 93 year old lady
that hit me. The 90,000 miles I owned
it I replaced the water pump, starter,
timing belt and the fan belt. This
was a very reliable truck. This was
the 2.3L four cylinder!

1993 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

Bought new in spring '93 and it's only
at 96K now;still looks/runs about as
good as new. Beyond regular maintenance
we've done no repairs other than replace
a cracked clutch slave and deal with the
poorly-designed parking brake. All the
heat shields have been removed after
they started to fall off (or rattle)
over the years. Note: this V6 burned
about 1 qt oil every 1,500 miles since
it was new-- Ford claimed this was
"within spec" and it's never really
changed. Re-torquing the intake manifold
bolts seemed to help for a while, but it
certainly didn't stop the oil use.


Best Features

Fun to drive, comfortable, long bed great for hauling/camping. Good MPG.


Worst Features

Hopefully they've fixed the bad parking brake and the silly plastic shift rail plugs that led to so many transmission failures. Oil use and intake manifold blow-by have likely been fixed.

1993 Ford Ranger Splash 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


Review

i have had the truck for about a year
now, and i must say, stock the truck is
peppy but after a few modification the
truck has potential. i have a 93 Ford
ranger splash with the 3.0 v6, i just
put 1300 into it, new clutch, slave
cylinder,timing chain, water pump,fan
clutch, and rear transmission seals.
Great truck though, its Ford Tough


Best Features

The motor, Just by putting a dyno max turbo muffler with 2" tips and 2 1/4 piping all the way back from the header to the muffler" No cats" and an intake along with the new heavy duty clutch i hae gotten about an extra 15 hp i love it.


Worst Features

More Weight in the rear. i almost kill myself in the rain. Also Make a better tranny for it.

Review

Truck needs a lower 1st gear.At about
100,000 miles,everything started
breaking,power windows,door
locks,overheating problems etc.I have
been a mechanic for 20 years and have
done way more maintance than the
average consumer.Also from day one the
plastic interior started falling apart.


Best Features

The electric seats are pretty comfortable


Worst Features

Lower 1st gear,more horsepower and a 4 core radiator.
