New Ranger a bust for a new owner.
Thought I'd stop in and say "hey" real quick like. I just bought a 1986 Ford Ranger with the 2.9l V6 4 wheel drive... Well I didn't buy it I traded my 98' dodge ram for it... Which actually ran, not so good but more so than this ranger.
Anyway the condition the ranger is in is this... It's leaking oil like a sieve, the radiator has a nice sized crack in it, it seems that the ignition tumbler is only good for starting the truck (It doesn't turn it off.) When the key is on and the truck is not running the fuel relay is activated non-stop and you can hear the fuel pump whine allot on both gas tanks. Engine isn't fond of even the tiniest load, it'll stall.
And yet none of this was apparent UNTIL I parked the truck next to my house after driving it 10 miles in traffic. But even though I got cheated I am looking forward to restoring the truck to the best running condition I can and then add a bunch of cool extras and what not.
