Check List for Buying a Used Ranger
My faithful '94 F150, with the 5spd and 6 cylinder lost it's tranny and had to be put down. A sad, sad day. Owned him for years and my sons learned to drive a stick with him. Great truck.
I'm in the market for a 90 to 2000 4cylinder 5 speed Ranger. Money's tight, but I'm a good driveway mechanic. I don't want to do a rebuild or anything major, just know what I'm up against. I need to know what to look out for in the high mileage trucks my budget can afford. I'm looking at trucks with150K and above. Not scared of mileage as long as it's been maintained reasonably well.
When did timing belts get replaced with timing chains? What other goblins should I be watching for ?
Thanks everyone. I'm looking forward to my first small truck. I won't own anything but a Ford truck. m
