Thanks for the reply, but I don't think thats it. You will see a listing for the 2001 Ranger and will have to choose from the following...
V6 245 4.0L F.I. (VIN X)
V6 245 4.0L F.I. (VIN E)
They each have different part numbers for oil/fuel filters. Since only the SOHC 4.0 [not the OHV 4.0] was available in 01 and up, I'm curious about the difference. Also each VIN choice asks if it made before, or after, 5-14-01. Here is an example from Purolator's web site...
