Just bought a 1994 4x4 Ranger Xlt extended cab with the 4.0. It has some minor issues so Im trying to locate a trustworthy mechanic to deal with mainly on driveline and suspension issues and an oil leak which is driving me crazy, cant figure where its comming from-will drain a quart of oil every two to three weeks. But when I park it there is only a little drop...Im in central Florida, Clermont area.
If anyone knows of any or better yet someone that does work out of home, that would be even better. Im looking to lift the truck soon but I beleive I should tackle the issues first. So if that mechanic is also knowledgeble in lifts that would be great.
Steering is very loose-about 5/6 inches left to right on the steering wheel, and its not comming from the rubber spacer, yet lookes like even the rack. When I go to accelerate from a stand still...It feels like it has latter bars which lifts the rear end upward but in stages. Just doesnt feel right. And finally there is a clunking noise when I brake hard going about 5/10 mph. I just noticed yesterday that when the temp out side was cold, along with the clunk there was a sqeeking noise...I know, it sounds like a junker...but its really in pretty good shape and the 4x4 works great along with the a/c.
So if anyone knows anyone please call 786-457-3253 or email me at: email@example.com
Im located in Minneola, Fl. Thanks....
