Funny you should ask!
The past couple weeks I had been having a check egine light coming and going and the truck was way down on power.My scanner kept saying it had a bad cam sensor.Well saturday I went and got a new one and climbed up on top of the enging to change it then seen it wasnt bad....I just never tightened down the holddown bolt for the dumby shaft! Only thing holding it close to position was the plug.
Well I got my sync tool and reset the sensor and it runs even better than day one now! I think my trans hates the engine cuz even though its a brand new trans with a Trans-Go shift kit under full throttle you can hear and feel the shifts are slow and soft with some slippage or converter issues.
Also,I have been using the Ranger to tow my Bronco2 on my 16ft car hauler for a few off road trips and other than weak braking it pulls and rides fine and easily has as much towing power as my dads 01 F150 with a 5.4
With the B2 loaded to keep tongue weight light it handles the load perfect with just my AAL in the rear of the Ranger.My trailer is about 1500lbs and I would guess the B2 is at least 3500lb so I am pretty impressed to say the least.
