My work car decided it was about to throw a rod so I've now replaced it with a 1996 Ranger 4x2 2.3L 5 speed. I think I've owned almost every brand of truck, last Ford was 16yrs ago. Recently it's been Toyota's which I still own. Been lurking here for a few days looking for fixes plaguing the Ranger, odometer not working, dome light won't shut off and found the knowledge here to be great. Many thanks to all that contribute. The Ranger runs and drives great and hopefully the gas mileage will be close to what the dead car was getting. So far I like this truck.
