I just introduced myself in the "Introduction" section but this is more technical so I'm going to post here. I just got my first Ranger and it was my dad's old truck. It's been sitting since November because while he was trying to do the spark plugs number 1 and 4 broke off on the driver side. I was able to get the plugs out using an extractor and got new plugs in, and man what a PITA on that driver side. I got the truck started but it runs rough and the alternator seized up causing the serp belt to snap off. I was able to start the car after that without the belt on and it idles rough.
Any ways there are a few plugs that he left unplugged and I'm trying to figure out where they go. The truck does not have power steering or AC. If anyone knows where these plugs go or if you can take a picture of your engine bay that would help.
An unplugged hose right by the oil dip stick
An unplugged wire on the passenger side
And then what looks like a blown fuse by the front of the motor kind of directly in top of where the alternator is. Not sure if this is suppose to be plugged in or if there is a fuse inside of it.
