I am looking into purchasing an 80's or early 90's Ranger. How easy is it
to get replacement weld in patch panels for common rust through areas for
these trucks.

Also any things to look out for when shopping for these trucks.

Thanks,

Paul

Fluctuating temp gauge - Temp sensor location

Several months ago I asked the sages on this NG what to do about a
fluctuating temp gauge indicator on an '89 Ford Bronco II. Someone said to
replace the temp gauge sensor. Question is where is it and how easy is it to
replace?

Thanks (again),
Joe

While I am here, where would a mechanical oil pressure guage hook up to on a '89
Ford Bronco II?

My Temperature guage sensor would fluctate occasionally too. Make sure that you
have the connector that goes to the sender clean and tight. I believe that this
sender is located on the lower intake manifold, just right or left of the
thermostat housing, at the front of the block.

I sprayed mine with WD-40 to get it off, and then contact cleaner to re-assemble
it. After that, It hasn't given me fits since.

I have a 1988 bronco 2. It's just about bullet proof! I love it.

There is a round connector with a single wire (black/yellow). It's located
on
the drivers side back of the alternator about where the ignition module
bolts
to the intake runners. There should only be one round connector with a
single
wire in the area.

Good luck.

Adam,

If I am not bad wrong I believe the oil pressure sensor is on the lower
block on the drivers side. There will be one wire going to it with a small
connector about the same as the water temp. sensor. It will be all alone
going to the sensor.

If that is not right I am sure that it is towards the front of the block
near the bottom. Just above the oil pan.

Adam
If you're talking about a "real" mechanical oil pressure guage, the
simplest thing to do is to place a "T" connector in place of the current oil
pressure sending unit (in the side of the block) and replace the sending
unit in one end of the "T" and attach the feed line to your mechanical guage
to the other end. If you want to REPLACE the current guage, then just
attach your mechanical guage feed line in place of the sending unit.

I had the same problem with my '94 Ranger 4X4. It happened around 40K
miles. It turned out to be the Speedometer.

I've had the same problem on my '79 Buick. The speedo cable goes from the
tranny to a cruise control module and then from the cruise module to the
speedometer. The speedometer also started bouncing around, then the cruise
control would stop working and finally the speedometer would stop working. I
checked the whole system and it turned out to be the cruise control module.
The parts that held the speedo cable were made of plastic and that plastic
was completely gone - the cable from the tranny would turn without moving
the gears inside the module.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

My 94 Explorer, 5 speed tranny, has developed a vibration in the speedometer
reading. Problem sets in around 60 MPH but gets worse at 65 and again at
70.
It reads steady for a few seconds, then drops 3 or 4 RPM, then bounces back,
maybe pops above the actual speed. Happens all the time above 60
MPH...seems to
be just beginning to occur at slower speeds.

Without cruise control (CC) the actual speed doesn't change, just the
speedometer reading.

With CC on, the system reacts to the speedometer fluctuations by trying to
maintain the set speed. If indicated speed drops abruptly, CC tries to
accelerate quickly back to set speed. If indicated speed pops up, CC
drops
the throttle to slow down. CC is essentially unusable until I solve the
speedometer problem.

I've pulled the cable; it's ok. The plastic gears at the tranny end and
inside
the tranny seem ok.

All advice is appreciated.....
