S-10 ha ha ha. Tell another one. If someone gave me a chevy the only place i
would drive it is to the dealership and trade for cash. And believe me i would
carry a big toolbox.

Is it really worth the trouble for some pocket change?

hmm, sounds to me like the problem is that you're not driving a Chevy.
Try the following things if you dont want to spin the tires:

1. Buy any S-10
2. Buy any full-size Chevy
3. Buy any Chevy
4. Buy anything produced by GM
5. Push a Chevy with you're real truck, but the tires *might* still
spin....
6. Take any engine from Chevy, replace your real engine with it.

You get the point. =)

I'd rather push a Ford than drive a Chevy, but why would I need to push
a Ford?

And to those who would rather push a Chevy than drive a FORD..well most
generally end up doing just that!

Subject: FTE Small - Temp Gauge Question

I have no idea if anyone will know this...maybe so....I have a '91 Ford
Ranger XLT 4x2 with a 2.3L 5spd engine. My temp gauge has not moved
since I bought the truck 2 months ago. It stays slightly below the C on
the scale....anyone know how to fix this? Should I have a pro do it?
I've never dealt with something like this before...so I'm not sure what
is wrong and where.....Thanx for any help you have.. :)

Subject: FTE Small - Speaker question

Hello again, I have yet another question. I own (if you forgot) a 91
Ranger XLT. I assume it has the stock stereo system, so someone here
must know what I mean. Both of my front speakers (which were the only
speakers when I bought the truck) are blown. I can replace them myself,
no problem. The problem is getting TO them. Do I need to remove the
whole freakin' door panel to get to them? The speaker is located on the
bottom of the door inside the little storage pocket. I thought the
grille covering the speaker would just come off by itself, but I can't
get it off. I am very reluctant to remove the whole panel because I
don't want to mess with putting the thing back on. If you have any
suggestions, lemmie hear! Thanx.

I had the very same problem a couple of years back with my Ranger's 2.9L. I
drove it that way thinking it was great having such a cool running truck,
except the heater didn't work because it did run so cold. Finally I went
through the cooling system and replaced the thermostat, problem fixed. Later
found out Ford fuel injection must have a certain motor temp to operate
correctly so I would suggest finding the problem soon.

Hope this helps,
Robert
