From: Mike Harms
Subject: RE: FTE Small - brake warning lights

Ouch.. Mr. Harms, now I feel old.

I haven't had any real experience with repairing anti-lock but I read about
it quite a bit as it's a technology that I find very interesting.

First, I would really want to see if I can pull the codes from the ABS
system. Depending on the system you have, there are many sensors and servos
and any one could cause a fault.
Fluid Pressure Sensor
Wheel Speed Sensors (Do Rangers have just one in the axle or one at each
wheel end?)
Electro/Hydraulic Modulation Valves

and probably others specific to the application.

If can pull the codes and don't find any then I would start looking at
faulty indicators. But from what I understand, if that light is on, there
will be a code to pull (granted, it may not point you to the exact problem).
If you can't find a code you'll really only be left with the same option the
dealer would have. Test each sensor as recommended in the book to see if
you can find one out of spec. (Assuming there is a spec for each sensor)

I am sorry I can't give any specific information. Maybe someone else with
some experience will pipe up.

Ray,

I did not remove the insulation from my hood. There was no interference
from the filter kit. I believe that our trucks have different intake set

Subject: FTE Small - Re:

Hi! I've been listening for a while.

I've got a '92 Ranger, 4cyl, 5 speed, short bed. Here are a few questions
and comments:

Does any one know if the later model Explorer seats will fit my Ranger? The
drivers seat support is shot. (Upholstery is great but I don't need to
analyze the frame welds with my back side!)

I have terrible electrical noise on both the regular and CB radios. It is
both ignition and motor noise (fan, wipers, etc.) on both radios. I have
checked, cleaned and tightened the engine and body grounds, alternator and
battery connections, etc. The CB now runs on a separate 14 Ga. shielded
twisted pair direct from the battery; it doesn't work any better than with
the cigarette lighter plug. On a related question, I know how to pull the
DIN style radio with the 4 holes in the face, but how do you pull the dash
trim that is over it? Is it just a pry and pull or what?

What is typical fuel mileage for this vehicle? I get 19-22 MPG depending on
speed and road conditions. Is this good bad or typical?

I drained and flushed the 5 speed when I changed the clutch. I'm now
running Mobil 1 synthetic ATF and it works well. I checked with the local
Ford dealer and their comment was "...as long as it says that it meets the
Ford spec on the bottle." It shifts just fine.

I have the rear ABS and have found that except for sometimes a very short
chirp I *can't* lock up the rear a speeds much above a fast walk. 'love it!

Thanks in advance for the help!

/s/

Mike

However, if the bucket Explorer seat will fit, they are the way to go. They

From: "Campbell, Carl "
Subject: RE: FTE Small - brake warning lights

Sorry Mike, I didn't mean to make you feel old ! I agree with you
concerning obtaining the error code. If you'll recall my first post about
this problem, I was trying to find the single wire diagnostic connector
referred to in the Chilton manual. According to the manual, if you
momentarily short this connector to ground, the "REAR ANTILOCK" warning lamp
will start flashing. There will be a number of short flashes followed by a
long flash. The total number of flashes is the error code. There is a table
in the manual that tells what the code means. Example: 3 flashes is a Code 3
= Open Dump Circuit. The table goes all the way up to 15 Flashes which is a
Code 15=memory failure. For those of you following along in your hymnals,
this table is on page 9-31 of the Chilton manual. The problem is that I
haven't been able to locate this $# ! connector. The Chilton manual says
it's a orange/black wire under the dash on the driver side near the main
cable bundle. I couldn't find it. My Haynes manual, which doesn't go into
as much detail about the system, has a diagram showing a diagnostic
connector very near to the main bulkhead connector on the RABS module
located behind the driver door. I couldn't find it there either. The
reason I asked about the reservoir sensor yesterday is because that is the
ONLY thing that has been changed and the system was working before (ie no
warning lights). I think the next step is to try to get the old reservoir
to hold enough fluid to test my theory by reconnecting to the old sensor.
I'll let you know what I find out. BTW in answering your question about the
speed sensor, on my 88 BII, it is a single unit mounted on the diff housing
and monitors the speed of the ring gear.

Won't get enough volume to make a difference... Besides, when you punch it,
the A/C is cut off anyway.
Hotter air going in to the intake at cruise helps mileage.

Yeah , I've heard of a guy that did that. I think I read it on www.ford ranger. com but I am not sure.

Ive also heard talk in here about cooler air stepping up the HP a little.
Thats the only reason I havent done any cuttin or drillin. Im sure the air
inside the engine compartment is much hotter that the air its taking in from
the outside.
On the same note, (people dont laugh I have a wild imagination)has anyone
heard of anyone runnong a small hose(say 1/2" heater hose) from somewhere in
the A/C airflow to the intake just before the throttle? Ive always noticed my
2.9L runs MUCH better in the winter than the summer. (not just cause the
compressor is turning in the summer either). Hey - just one of those wild $$
ideas I may make millions from someday. Doesnt hurt to ask!

One of the contributors to this discussion of air intakes said something the
other day about running his own test to measure the difference between
outside air and under-the-hood air. He said that he found only about 5 to
10 degrees difference at cruising speeds, which I would have to agree is
minimal. I've also read this from other places... The only time you'd
probably see the temperature difference exceed the 5 to 10 degree range is
if you sat in traffic on a hot day. But, you'd be stopped anyway.
Kind of seems like the positive comments from those who have installed KKM
air induction kits on their Rangers have outweighed the temperature issue.

Since I am the original sender of the "Goodguys..." post, I assume that
this is directed at me. The last time I posted to the list was 7/6 with 2
posts. I don't have any record of sending e-mail to the list or to your
personal address after that date.
So, if there is a problem, you are going to have to be more specific if
you want it corrected.

-Do the e-mails you want stopped all arrive with the "Goodguys..."
header?
-Who do they come in from. i.e. are they coming from the list or my
personal e-
mail address?
-Or is this just your unique way of uns*bscribing to the list?

Subject: FTE Small - BII Stuff

There was talk a while back about thermostat temps. What is the stock
thermo temp for my '88 BII, and does anyone recommend changing it?
Also, I've heard that older BII's had larger throttle bodies than "newer"
ones. Exactly which ones had the larger throttle body, and again does
anyone recommend changing the (stock) one I've got now?
Thanks!

I was actually thinking about doing the same thing to make up the
difference... Let me know if anyone knows an easy way to do that...

Subject: FTE Small - Computer problem?

For the past few months I have been looking around for another Bronco II.
Today I found an 85, V6, 4X4, 5-speed for sale. Before the guy tried
turning it over he told me that it probably wouldnt run because the
computer was damaged in an accident (the reason he was selling it). It
was side swiped on the front fender of the passenger side. Would this be
enough to damage the computer? I have a parts Bronco II and if need be
how easy would it be to swap the parts. Other than that everything is
nice. Interior very nice. New brakes, driveshaft, master cylinder, all
new gaskets, and more. It has 146,000 miles and he is asking $450. Does
this sound all right? Thanks in advance!

Subject: FTE Small - Headers and Filter charger

This is the first time posting so I hope I do not offend anyone.
I have a 94 Ford Ranger with the 2.3L four cylinder. The thing is great for
gas mileage and has some pick up but I am looking for some more. I have been
trying to find some Exhaust Headers, a FilterCharger like K&N or the one that
you all have been talking about the "KMM" I think that is what it is, and
also a performance chip. I have heard that they are all available but I have
not been able to find anything. If you all could help me out I would greatly
appreciate it.

Thanks
