My 1993 Ranger Only has 120,000miles on it. the 2003 civic has 105,000 mi... So as far as the "Tired" thing goes..... they are similar.
I think a couple of you guys are looking way too deep into this. I was just concerned when I was going down the freeway, slightly uphill with the pedal to the floor and only doing 65-70 MPH. I had just replaced the clutch, I was hoping it was not slipping.... I guess in my mind I was thinking the 2.3 was half of a the 5.0... Which I have owned 2. one was in a F150, the other in a mustang. They always had ample power. Guess not.
And My ranger is a 5 speed. So it does have overdrive.
