Yea, O2 sensors will go bad if you fart in the wrong direction.
the price of an O2 sensor is a drop in the bucket compared to the rest.

use Mapp gas or an oxy acetylene and a pipe wrench.

After this repair is over, please, please, never ever work on a vehicle again.

HAHA...just because you dont use the Hotline, doesnt mean you can fix a car, and where i work has nothing to do with this thread...Just kind of odd that you work at a dealer and have so many problems with your truck that you cant fix

Ill agree that my comment was a little bit harsh, but even before i became a master tech (which basically means i can sit and take tests), i could get out a rounded off bolt...you should take it to your work and pay shop labor rate to remove the sensor!

No kidding. All these threads are getting old for someone who works in a shop...let alone a Ford shop

If i was at work it would be a different story i have all my tools there. Working in my driveway sucks because i basically have nothing. Just basic Hand tools. I'm not even close to a master tech nor do i get paid flat rate. I can fix a lot of the things on my truck but like i said above. And the main reason why i pay for it to get done is for convenience because its my DD and i cant have it dismantled for more than a day. Also i don't work as a tech any more I'm doing bolt on modifications to Stangs and stuff. (It's what i have a degree in)

I hope your not like the engineers that come into our building.
heres my best example i can give.
Backstory: The new F-150s are going to be aluminum bodied. The roofs cannot support a decent hit, right where the B pillar meets the roof will split. the under roof support wasn't strong enough.

So, truck gets wrecked, it gets to my stall, and i was told i couldn't touch it until the engineer looked at it, so, the guy comes along and i'm fixing something else on the truck to kill time, He wants me to show him where the crack is and all this other stuff, So i show him, big 'ol crack you'd be welding in a new pillar if you left it this way. So he says, "we're gonna have to fix this, but i have no idea how" so i said, why don't you just have us weld the roof to it? give it a bit more support than just the Glue thats in there now (i said Glue) but he said, no that won't be possible, its a Steel support, on an aluminum roof (anyone else see an issue here?) So his conclusion: Bolt it.
thats right, they put a bolt (1 bolt, you've got room for at least 2 more) in there, Not that it helped. still wrecks the same, just now the roof crunches with it too.

I cant comment on the engineers that come to your place but I can vouch that Toreador def knos his stuff, and id honestly let him fix anything on my truck. He does do the hotline now but only recently did he start that. This past weekend he helped me remove everything out of my rear diff and reset everything back up and even though I know a pretty good amount, I honestly probably couldn't have done it comfortably/safely without his help. Plus im sure he had to get annoyed as **** and bothered with me texting him a million times and asking a million questions over and over again but yet he was still there to help me whenever I needed it. Much respect to him.

OP: as far as the issue your having is concerned im glad you got it fixed, I hope you dont have anymore issues. Im starting to have little things pop up now and I hope they stop soon. Ive always known the ford rangers to be really trustworthy and I hope that thinking continues. There are some design flaws that I dont understand why ford did but thats with every vehicle. Hope it gets better for ya man.

I have no doubt Justin knows his junk, just by what he posts here and there. But i'm just hoping he could also shed some light on how narrow minded some engineers could be on this stuff. Anybody that can make it to Master tech knows there stuff.

Thanks Zach. Im glad you got the rear axle done and im glad i could help. Hopefully your pinion seal leaves you alone for now.

I work at the Technical Hotline as a transmission/driveline/4x4 service engineer currently. previously i did classic car restorations, worked at an independent shop, and worked at a dealership (Tom Holzer) doing transmission and driveline.

I know how narrow minded that alot of the engineers are. I had a meeting with Torqshift6 engineers (2011+ superduty transmission) and heard their story about how they get a failed transmission back for review, they run it on a stand without fluid, using air pressure to test it. If their half assed test stand doesnt show any concern, they charge the dealer back for trans replacement. They are leaving out ALL the variables of PCM control, fluid, driving conditions etc...retarded.

They call from Tasca in Cranston...i think that is the town

You worked at Holzer? I've been there a time or two.
At least we're on the same page about some Engineers. Not all of them are like this, i've seen one or two do some good stuff. i think the best engineer job would be the driving testers (i have no idea what their official name is) We fab up a roll cage out of chrome molley, then these engineers drive the hell out of them. Running them into curbs, flooring it then stomping on the brakes. that kind of stuff. all in experimental covered cars.
