I must say that overall I like my ranger. Quite a bit actually.. but there have been several quality issues.
The truck now has 50k on it. And last winter in the snow I noticed a few drops of antifreeze. I saw the leak path was from the water pump.
So I figured as long as it wasn't puddling or loosing too much coolant I'd let it go. Well I was changing fluids yesterday and now it's leaking more. The front of the engine is damp and I have yellow/green drops hanging everywhere.
IMO.. a newer car w/less than 50k miles on it should not have water pumps, brakes, IAC, go out.. and fluids that are black.
Just a bit of a rant I reckon.. Looks like I'll be changing the water pump next weekend on a ford I bought new... 26 months ago.
