Please help! I have a 1990 ford ranger that I would like to use as a tow
vehicle behind a motorhome. The truck has a 2.9L V6 and 5 speed manuel
transmission. Several sources have told me that the ford trucks have pocket
bearrings that are not self lubricating. The engine and transmission must be
engaged for lubrication. Other sources have not heard of this. If you have any
input or have towed a Ranger with all 4 wheels on the ground, please let me
know. The truck I own is 2 wheel drive.
Thanks, Dan

Subject: Third Gear Slips a little!!

Hello,
I have an '87 Bronco II and this morning I noticed that third gear, if I'm
going uphill or hit the gas too hard SLIPS a little!! This truck has been
absolutely perfect so far. It only has 88,000 miles on it and I have always
babied it. This is a manual transmission and I haven't checked the fluid
level yet (noticed this on the way to work today)....will check it tonight
(usually check it every time I do an oil change). Any thoughts on what this
could be?? I'm getting ready for a little road trip soon and want to avoid
any surprises along the way!
Any help is much appreciated!!

Hello, I have an 87 Bronco II with aod. I drove it home last nite and parked
it, everything was fine. I warmed it up to go to work this morning, and
cannot get it out of park. So, here I am, stuck at home. Any ideas what this
could be? Is in in the floor shifter or the trany? Thanks.

Bruce, try moving the steering wheel a bit. I don't know if it would help or
not, though. If that's not it, The spring on the push button might be broken,
so when you push the button, it might not be dis-engaging the safety. If
that's the case, you just need to take off the shifter handle, and push it
directly. Just don't force it, because you'll mess up the tranny or shifter or
both.

I usually get about a 20 mile reception and about 15 - 20 mile send. This all
depends upon the weather conditions. You can go farther if you take advantage
of a phenomenon called "skip" This happens with overcast skies and can add 1
to 10 miles to your sending range. Also, the taller the antenna you have the
better your send/recieve will be.

Along the same lines, but a little different and for my own entertainment.
I've seen several lowered Rangers, but one thing that always looks outta
place is the cab that looks like a tower! Does anyone know of pics on the
web that show a lowered Ranger with a chopped top? That would be the
ultimate in coolness. Add a top notch suspension, 17" wheels, a kickin'
351, a powerful stereo, and a sweet paint job to boot, and you've got one
bad machine. Hmmm, dreamin' I guess. If ya know, please answer

Hi,
On the 89 Ranger that I used to have, it was on the RH (passenger side)
inner fender, in front of the heater blower motor. I seem to think
that you had to unplug it from the underneath of some kind of an
electrical junction block or fuse block, it is black plastic and may say....
