June 30, 2008 about Ford Ranger

I bought my 1995 Ford Ranger XLT in April of 2002 with 85,000 miles on it. I now have over 220,000 miles on it and it is still running GREAT!! I somewhat agree with Phil from WA, about it being very peppy for a 4-Cyl! However, here in KY with all the hills, depending on what sort of load I am hauling, I find I sometimes have to down-shift as it looses power on the up hill grades...but we aren't talking NORMAL uphill grades either!!

Fortunately, I was able to find this truck as it had everyhing I wanted in a truck...the gauge package, 5-speed manual, extended cab.

Now, I have had to replace a whole list of parts that, naturally, wear out over time. I have put on a new starter, water pump, timing belt, alternator, clutch, and have kept up regular maintenance on it (regular oil changes and such). I have learned from my father who owned a 1988 Buick Century and put over 300,000 miles on that car, that if you get the regular maintenance on your vehicle and don't abuse it when you drive it, they will last!!

When I worked on a construction site for a while as the data entry person, I noticed that Ford Ranger's were the choice of vehicle for most of the contractors. I would have to say 98% of the companies use these trucks!

My truck may have some cosmetic damage on it, but mechanically it is VERY sound! I love my truck and if/when this one ever dies, I will definitely get another one!

A fuel Sending unit is in the gas tank and sends an electrical siganl to the fuel gauge on the dash to display how much fuel you have left. A fuel Pump sends fuel to the fuel rail. On this vehicle it has 2 fuel pumps. One low pressure pump located in the gas tank mounted to the fuel sending unit. And One high pressure pump located on the frame rail of the truck. So you will need to attach a fuel pressure gauge to the the fuel rail test port and test the pressure. It needs to be 30 psi. If all you see is 20 psi or less, you need to replace the high pressure pump on the track frame. If you see 0 (zero) psi, you will need to replace the fuel pump in the tank.

Check the inertia swctih (fuel cut off swctih) This swctih shuts off the fuel pump in the event of a collision. Once the swctih has been tripped, it must be reset manually in order to start the engine. The inertia swctih is located on the toe-board, to the right of the transmission hump, in the passenger-side footwell. But your relay should see battery voltage on the BLK/YEL wire that comes from a 30 amp fuse#1.The RED wire that goes to the Relay should be Battery Negative.The TAN?LT GRN wire going to the relay sends a battery negative to the ECM at pin #22The ORG/LT BLU wire connects from ECM pin #8 to the relay and activates the relay to send battery voltage to the Fuel Pump on a ORG/LT BLU wire.
