with or without
Hello Ranger enthusiast.
Intro: I have a 2000 Ranger with the 4 liter 6 cylinder. 4X4 and stuck small rear doors.(that is something I will look into in the other discussions.)
I had a plastic valve come apart and drain all my coolant. This caused mine to over heat. I then replaced the head gaskets and it fired up and ran pretty good for a while.
I got about 3 seasons out of it but when the warmer weather showed up here in Vermont the Rod knock started to increase along with the oil pump pressure bouncing at idle.
I pulled the engine and cleaned up the crank and installed all new bearings for the crank and connecting rods. measured carefully and all torqued down properly with new seals.
Here is my question: I am now getting a code p0340. When I pulled the engine this plug disintegrated. I tried to just plug what was left into the sensor(crank shaft position sensor) and I am sure this is where the problem lies. When I look up the part it shows two to choose from. I don't have the pieces from the one that fell apart. the new ones have or do not have a release. What one do I order? With or without the release.
Maybe either will work but I don't want to wait for the other to come in if I choose the wrong one first.
Thank you for your input on this
