Elusive little devil isn't it? I wish I could recall off the top of my head
whether it's in the same location in the '90s as the '80s... On those it was
on the drivers side about 2" behind the timing belt cover and 1/2-2/3 of the
way down the block. (and usually interfered with trying to get to the
distributor bolt for timing.) If it's not there then look on the vacuum
diagram under the hood; ought to give you a 'rough' idea where to look.

I'll hope for one to come in the shop soon or a break from all this A/C work
to snag the info from the AllData if no one else has a concrete answer by
then. :-)

Tim

Hi folks,

I just replace my '97 Ranger standard cab 4x2 3.0 liter with short bed
truck (was leased), with a 2000 Ranger 4X4 extended cab 4 door 4.0 liter
with the off road package and 4.10 L/S rear (also leased). On the '97, I got
only 14.5 mpg around town; sometimes up to 15 mpg, sometimes worse. My
driving habits seem normal to me, but others in this group had told me they
had done somewhat better. Now with this new truck, I would like to know
what other members of this group average with a similar setup. I expect it
to be worse than the '97 I had, but how much? I love the truck in every way;
it's looks (Toreador Red), and the way it handles, plus the increase in
power.

Thanks,

Bob Leifer

I have an '88 with a 2.3. It is carbereted and it gets 18 mpg. I think I
would be just as well to swap in a FI 302 from a Mustang. My old 5.0 LX got
between 15 and 24 depending on driving habits (fairly stock BTW). I am
thinking I will leave the rear end ratio at about 2.73 or 3.08, and just
enjoy the added power. It would probably beat the smog test too, if we had
them.

It's tricky because it's not in any of the usual places (valve cover,
intake) and you can't really see it. It's at the back of the engine on the
driver's side near the #4 plug. It's pressed into a hose that attaches to
the intake manifold so it's not actually on the engine. I'm afraid I can't
give any more specific directions because I don't have the engine for
reference anymore. If you look around back there you'll find it.

Oh, by the way, I left out the fact that the '97 was a 4 speed automatic,
and the 2000 is a 5 speed automatic tranny.
