"why would i go to a dodge or chevy site to ***** about Ford ?" thats another way of tell you to **** off
because thats your main purpose here ? to tell ppl to **** off ? nice.

you feel like im rubbing my trucks problems in your face ? im stating the fact that i hate my truck and i am curious if anybody else hates theirs as well. its an honest question that i am allowed to ask . and yes i can say that the quality of ford craftsmanship on MY ranger is ****ty. i didnt personally say the vehicle in your driveway is a pos . but hey if you feel that way im sorry and i didnt mean YOUR truck was a pos .. just mine :(

Dang...is it a little stuffy in here?



First off...I owned 2 Rangers (one of them being an 02) and I did not have any problems with either of them (at least none that I didnt cause) and was very happy with both.

I now own a Focus and again, no problems.

It sucks you seem to have gotten stuck w/a "just off the mark" Ranger...

As for all of you flaming Jeff, I dont really understand why. If anyone would be getting banned, it would be those of you flaming him.

I have said it before, and I will say it again...

Its just the internet...

Opinions are like ... well a certain part of your body... everyone has one.

Just because Jeff hasnt had the best of luck with his Ranger, and he decided to post about it (to see if anyone else had...he was asking for help/advice...isnt that what this whole site is about?) dosnt mean you have to attack him.

Yes, we are on a Ranger site, and he just so happens not to like his so much, it dosnt mean you have to rip him a new one. Get over it.

you said, "its not a vehicle just you and the others on here love"

why are you telling me why i am here? i am here cuz i take pride in my truck and i love my ranger.

"because thats your main purpose here ? to tell ppl to **** off ? nice."
pretty sure i havent told anyone here to **** off except jerks like you say unecessary things in a manner in which you know is going to upset people


"im sorry, next time ill ask you if i can express my opinions on MY truck . which is what the origional post was about . MY truck being a pos , and me wondering how all the other rangers on the road are pushing 200k with no problems. "
how bout you just be considerate of others when you go bashing rangers, you didnt have the intent to bash rangers but you sure made it sound like that

im gonna be the bigger man here and stop arguing over this... you do need to leave because your only upsetting people over here

am i alone here or what ? anybody else disgusted with their ranger and its cheap quality ? you know why they are easy to work on .. because they break everyday . Ford Or Repair Daily is NO joke in my book .

thanks Ford. Thanks alot . Ill be over at the Dodge dealer where parts might cost 3x as much , but they dont break 10 times as often .

tell me how that is complaining about your rangers problems.. you arent complaining about the ranger, you are ******* it... "buying a real truck"
"no longer will i be a ford fan boy" -- you really love Ford dude

"i am disgusted with the ranger and its cheap quality"
dude you aren't compaining about how yours is a POS and you happened to get a lemon, you are talk about rangers being cheap as a whole, how its not a "real truck"

seriously dude, its pathetic for you to even try and defend yourself after saying that kinda stuff

Honestly.. I'm on a Malibu forum as well, Same ****, different vehical. I see the same on a.. ( oh this is gonna hurt to say and I KNOW I'm going to get spammed for it.. I would.. damn.. ) HONDA forum ( gulp ) regarding ATV''s ( Not the rice on the road dammit! ) and see the same thing there.

Theres always a couple of people complaining about their ' lemon ' or POS and how bad THEIRS was the sux0rz or how they were lied to, told bad things by their dealerships/point of sales..

On average, these people sell their cars/trucks/items and go to another forum.. couple months down the road after their new entity starts breaking-in, they start their cycle of complaining all over again. ' I have this squeak, thud, noise coming from... '

I will honestly say I can NOT find a new vehical out there that I could buy and NOT have to change something. Theres still **** on my ride that I really don't care for and I need to correct.. things *I* have done that I'm going to change ( look in the project-log area.. Im rebuilding my front end ).

EVERYONE has some complaint about their vehical. Be it paint, mpg, noises..

I might have been wrong in my first responce, but from the sound of it, I had to ask myself if you were more or less saying these trucks aren't worth buying?

I see your now questioning only YOUR truck.

Is it a Lemon? For you.. sure. For someone like myself? Nope.

My slave cylinder failed TWICE in the first month I owned mine. Solution was simple. I had a WC T5 sitting around that needed a home. No more hyrdaulic clutch issues at all. Some would say that it would be stupid to do an a less then 60 day old vehical, but knowing i was going to put laughing gas on it .. and seeing what the factory tranny could handle ( apparently : not even its own weight! ), it was a wise decision on my part ( or so I believe ).

50,000 TORTURING miles. I beat my truck like it owes me money or as If I stole it. Tranny has never given me a problem

I think I understand your perspective and offer a sincere appology for questioning why you didn't fix your transmission right the ' first time '. The seals and cylinders are 2 totally different entities and have basically nothing to do with one another, thus having to pull the tranny a second time.

You can add my 01 ranger to the list of crap. I am having problem after problem. I drive like a grandma too. Most of my problems is the engine. On a side note, i met a guy this morning on my route. His brand new ford 250 diesel would not start. he said he bought it 2 days ago.

This truck is also another example of walk away with no scratch and the truck ended up rolling on the roof and landing another car(i demolished a honda civic and still laugh about it)
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEATBELTS, never no what will happen

You got a lemon-it happens, that is what happens when so many parts come from over seas today, hard to find anything made solely in the USA
And with the amount of ford trucks on the road you will find alot of them with problems, the more trucks made the more problems you have(i hope you all understand what im saying) i think ford has more trucks on the road than anybody else(no real statistics, just going by the fact that i see more fords than any other)
Get rid of it and get another, weather it be ford or whatever you wish, in all reality its your truck, get what you want and who cares what everybody else thinks, some trucks last forever and some last not very long and this is true for any make
So trade in the truck and get another, or just buy another and make the ranger a 4-wheeling toy
I will also state that this thread is getting rather intersting-little out of hand -but interesting

here is what the rangerstation.com says about my transmission . i think i am going to go junkyard shopping for a 5speed with manual t-case in the near future .. i really dont want to get rid of this truck .. i would be losing alot of money on it . might just convert it to 4wd and sas it . *sigh* its not like its a stranger to water in the cab .

Mazda R-1 5-Speed
Code "M"

This is a top shift fully synchronized transmission. This has a light duty aluminum case and has a rectangular shape casting ribs with a large top cover. The R-2 is known for leaking oil from a rubber plug in the top cover. You should replace the rubber plug with a steel Dorman cup plug PN# 555-108 or Dana PN#219-3052. You will need 3 plugs. These trannies often melt down due to the oil loss caused by these plugs.

Many owners have went with synthetic transmission fluid hoping to extend the life of the transmission. Synthetic fluid handles high temperatures and pressures better then conventional fluids.

The hydraulic clutch, slave cylinder/throwout bearing is another item you should pay close attention to. After time, the slave cylinder fails to release the clutch completely. If you are having trouble shifting into 1st and reverse while stationary or if your truck creeps forward with the clutch pedal depressed the slave cylinder/throwout bearing is probably at fault. Unfortunately there is no easy fix here as the transmission must be removed to replace the combination slave cylinder and throwout bearing.
