When I had my ranger I believe it was around 21k, my MAF got clogged from the K&N filter i had in it. Otherwise no problems w/the truck

Woops... Directed to you… Just wondering what failed on such a new truck. I've had great reliability so far.

I have never had one on this truck that wasn't caused my own meddling. My 2000 3.0L Ranger had one at around 15,000 for incorrect EGR flow because of the DPFE sensor.

Oh no... mine isn't on. I was just asking the question in general. Mainly to get an idea on what are some problems that people have had. The reliability of these trucks seem very good.

My oil light came on when my oil pump went out doing 70 mph and locked up my engine. My airbag light came on at 35,000 miles and been on since just need to replace the light. But my check engine light has never been on
