New to me Ranger has quirks?
Alright guys first post.
2001 2.3L 5speed manual, 2WD, 70k miles, well maintained. Silver if it matters.
1. Door slop, door ajar light, and dome light stays on too long. It seems to stem from the same problem, either in the door latch or door hinges. I'm thinking latch as thats where I hear a bump coming from when I hit a pothole or manhole cover. Because it doesn't lock up TIGHT the door ajar light is displayed, hense the dome light not being timely. Seems that every Ranger I've ever been in does this. It drives me insane! I need to fix it!
2. E-brake light comes on when truck is started. If I engage and release it twice the light usually turns off. Whats the problem here? maybe a rusty e-brake line?
p.s. So many threads asking how to improve MPG. Rule number one, MAINTAIN PROPER TIRE PRESSURE! It makes a HUGE difference. Rule two, keep your foot outta the gas!
