Got this Ranger for a steal of a price.. she is an 03 XLT with almost 100K and runs great except I think the power steering pump is going bad..is this typical for Rangers? You can see some pictures here.. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3045115

nice...it' begging for clear corners.

Have you checked your fluid? it takes ATF, and she'll make some sweet noises when she's low on fluid.

I've been looking at an 02 xlt just like yours with 113,000 miles do you think the high milage hurts these trucks, are they know to make it to 200,000 if maintained. What about the transmissions? Looks good do you like the ride?

unless the cam synchronizer self destructs causing you to lock the engine up. I had 115k on my 3.0 when it did that and it was well taken care of.
