What's Gonna Go Wrong Next? 2001 Ranger
Hello All, new to the forum.
I'm hoping to get a bit of advice from folks with considerable experience with the 2001 Ranger 3.0 V6. Mine has now got 172,000 miles on it and is beginning to show her age: Lots a little things are beginning to go wrong. And, while this truck has been quite reliable-- all in all-- over the last decade, I have recently experienced a number of things (mostly coolant system related) that have left me stranded roadside.
This is my work vehicle. And if I can't get to the job, I can't bill the hours. So, I'm feeling the need to be a bit more proactive in in the maintenance department.
So the question is what is likely to go bad next on this particular truck-- especially that type of malfunction that's going to leave me waiting for the tow truck.
In the last 6 months I have replaced the alternator, the battery, a number of coolant hoses, the water pump, and the radiator.
What next ....?
(If this there is a good thread on this subject, that I have missed in my forum search, please point me that way.... sorry if I pose a question that has been answered many times!)
