Minor issues on '08 Ranger Sport
Greetings, all..great to find this forum for Ranger support!!!
I have a dynamite little 4L V6 '08 Ranger Sport we picked up about six months ago. It's been a gem, and everything we've been able to tell about the truck indicates it was well looked after, but I've got a few minor things that have popped up...thought I'd solicit some general advice.
Firstly, its time for an oil change. Problem is we have no good oil change history for it, and I don't know if it has been using synth/synth blend/conventional. I'd obviously prefer to change like-for-like, but if I can't figure out what it had before, what would be the recommendations here? It has about 76K miles, no leaks, no smoke.
Secondly, the fuel gauge as developed a tendency to "bounce" a bit. I'm thinking that's likely a bad float or perhaps a bad sender, but wondered if there were something else possibly at play I need to consider?
Third, I'm picking up a bit of pulsing on the brakes, which I suspect may indicate worn/out of round rotors. Don't expect any big problem in changing those, but here, too, just wondering if there were any other things I should be looking at along the way?
