Hey all. Just signed up to this site seeing as i just received a ranger. lol
Well it hasn't been started since 09, Hooked some jumper cables to it and it started up for a few seconds and died cause it ran outta gas. So we trailered it home. Got it started again and it sounded it it has jumped a tooth in timing, pulled off the cover and sure enough it did. So timed it all back up and it ran alright still a lil rough. Put a new timing belt on it, new plugs, new oil, and gas. Added some fuel treatment too just to make sure if anything was in there.
Well pulled the number 3 plug out on the intake side and it looked like this.
Looks like the piston came up and ate it??
But anyways put all that new stuff on it ad it ran good above idle and sittin at idle it runs like it has a big cam.. Not sure if its a vacuum leak or what??
