Joe Meadows

Hey All,

My name is Joe Meadows, I'm a second mate on offshore supply vessels, working in the oil fields in the North Atlantic.

On the way out from our hunting lodge yesterday after our long weekend I completely removed the sidewall on a front tire, and on the ride home on the highway lost a fuel pump - luckily with a few swift kicks to the tank I got her going again, but it seems my poor old ranger is due for some good TLC.

Hoping to become a regular on these forums as I put her back together.

Truck as it stands now is a '97 2WD XLT, 3.0L V6

this right here is what i like, someone who uses a truck like a truck. and yes i have had some problems with my 3.0 as well. but if your looking to get your truck running good, just keep up on all the scheduled maintence and keep an eye on the timing cover gasket as well as the camshaft pos. sensor. two notorious fixes on these motors. fuel pump aint to bad and the motor is bulletproof. use some zmax or seafoam and it'll run smooth. but welcome.
