3.0 guys need your help
I honestly wish i had never bought this truck a month ago. Its a 1999 ranger 3.0l v6 with a 5 speed. I have a few questions and I hope you can help me. Ive already put well over 1k into this pos.
1) I have a bad Idle, the truck shakes including the motor and shift ***. Ive replaced the wires and plugs, but It seems to actually have gotten a little worse. Any suggestions on stuff that goes bad? IAC or MA Sensor?
2) When i left off the clutch in 1st or 2nd, there is a really bad rattle. The ******* that sold me the truck said it was the heat shield and all rangers do this.. Somehow im doubting him.. Its a very rapid rattle, and it will continue after i let off the clutch until i bring up the rpms.
3) The truck has some terrible vibrations, and they get worse as the rpms climb..you can feel it in the clutch and gas pedal, as well as the shifter. Im at a loss on this one.
Ive replaced so far : Shocks, Wheel bearings, Serpantine belt, Ball joints, Plugs and wires, Breaks all within this month, and im living under the poverty line lol. YOu have no idea how depressed this truck makes me, cuz I took a loan out to get it, so im stuck with it. I really appreciate any help you guys can throw my way. Thanks!
