3.0

I love my 3.0. Other than a new water pump at 90,000 miles,I've had "O" problems.
I change oil more than needed,every 3000 miles.With full synthentic 5w20.I give it a dose of Lucas upper cylinder/fuel injecter cleaner,every time,or everyother tlme
I fill up the gas tank,I swear by that stuff ! I clean my MAF and IAC sensers every 3-4 months.It will get up and go when I need it to.It runs so smooth,you can hardly
tell the engine is running.I never haul ***,and do dumb ****.All that,mabey,thats why my Rangers 3.0 runs so good.
see ya,old retired guy

What is your opinion of the 3.0L V6 motor?

Mine is lifted with 4.56 gears and 35" tires and a large winch bumper and winch and averages 18.5-19 mpg. I have a gibson cat back exhaust and k&N air filter with modified airbox. Past chassis was a 2.3 4 cyl and if you wheel you will definitely see more power out of the 3.0.
