Engine Calibration Code location?

Well, for 1988-1995 it says, "Pasenger side kick panel, near drivers foot." If that isn't completely non-logical to follow.

Where the crap, can I get my calibration code to see if I am EEC-IV or EEC-V?

Is there an easy way?

Ford used the EEC-IV from 1988-1995, but I don't know if they used EEC-IV through 1995, or stopped at 1995.

Anyone?

99% sure they stopped after the 1995 model year. when obd-2 was introduced they needed a new engine set up.

So that would mean I have EEC-IV if you are correct, yeah?

Most Vehicles went to OBD-II in 1996 but the Ranger was part of a phase-in in 1995. So, with a couple of small exceptions, the 1995 Ranger was compliant with the 1996 OBD-II requirements. I can't say for sure that the 1995 Ranger is EEC-V but I believe it is.

Look on top of the PCM itself. The EEC version is usually on the printed label.

Just look at your DLC connector. If it's the generic OBD-II 16 pin you should be running the EEC-V as far as I know.

In order to use the tuner, and program you're truck yourself, you need to have EEC-V. Correct me if I am wrong [someone], but you can still get a hard-coded chip that you have to install in place of you're stock computer if you have anything else.
