reason, Books on Tape.">
Don't let this stop you. Quite awhile ago when CD players first came
out, the in dash units were too sensitive to vibration compared to the
SONY walkman. SONY and many others came out with a device that hooked up
in-line with your antenna and allowed you to insert your CD music on a
FM frequency. The same device now allows me to insert Taped music from a
portable tape player into my premier CD sound system. Much better
alternative since I can fit a new tape player in my shirt pocket.

Subject: FTE Small - solenoid??

Hey y'all,

On my 86 Ranger I am having starter problems. When I hit the starter,
it starts fine. But then the starter will not let go of the engine
until I stomp on the brake, pop the clutch, and hit the starter again.
My query is this: is the solenoid to blame? With something like this, I
should probably know the answer, but I don't. Nothing new there.

Thanx in advance.

I have looked into this, BTW. You can get a Ford badged CD changer that
will plug right into the harness of the truck, for $600! From what I
could tell, the changer is a Clarion, same as you can find at Worst Buy
for half that. The exception is that the jacks and pin assignments are
not the same, but a few minutes with a soldering iron and the pin-out
diagrams can fix that.

What are Ranger owners getting for mileage?
I have a '97 with the 3.0 and 5 spd and am wondering what I should be
getting for mileage. The truck has 6900 kms.....I am from Canada.

Thanks, Peter.

I would like to know what changes were made to Rangers
from 1989 to 1997 year by year. I'm interested in
engine options, differential size, suspension, and
general quality impressions. Also, any other details
that anyone either likes or dislikes.

So far, I believe that in 1990 ABS, 4.0L, and 8.8"
differential were introduced.
I've also heard that in either '96 or '97 the quality
dropped but I'm not sure in what way.

I would appreciate any info, even if it's for one year.

Thanks,
Don
