Greeting all.
I have a 94 Ranger XLT, 3.0 U code 2WD, auto. I have had this truck since 1997 I think and I just love it. It feels like I have owned it all my life! I just turned over 91K miles...kinda low compared to some I have seen. In a few years this truck will no longer require an emission inspection in the state of Tx due to its age. Although I have never had any problems passing either safety or emission inspections, I thought Id go ahead and restore it. Its been a reliable vehicle for many years and I really dont see anything Id like to replace it with.

I dont have a factory manual and those chilton books dont seem to have a lot related to older 3.0 motors, so I thought I could get whatever help and information I need from here. Folks always seem willing to share their knowledge and I am grateful for that.

Thanks
With respect
Dozer

Hello Dozer. I just bought a 94' 3.0 2WD. Mines got 191,000 though. It burns oil but runs and drives great. I really like the I beam front suspension.

Ford had a great little truck in the Ranger. I hated to see the line end. These little trucks are tough and reliable if you use them for what they were intended for. Nearly everything on my truck is still OE...even the O2 sensors. But they will go as I gradually restore this old gal. Last item on the list will be a new paint job. Mine is that kinda deep emerald green or teal...dont actually know what the color is. If it werent for the clear coat peeling from the hood and roof, I still wouldnt need a paint job.

Have you found the source of your oil problem? Maybe its something cheap and simple. Once you fix that I am sure you'll have a great little truck. I am pretty certain the guys here will be happy to help you find the problem.
