I have a 92 ranger ext cab 3.0 5-speed with 180,000 miles
still runs great, gets 19-23 mpg. I do need a oil pan, she's
rusted out. So I can't tell for sure on oil usage, but I add
a quart every 1200 miles I think most of it leaks out.
I have 126K on my '96 Ranger with the 3.0 engine, 4WD, ext. cab, and automatic. Its on radiator #4 and transmission #2. Everything else is okay except I've had the left front wheel come off twice. I check the lug nuts regularly now.
97 Ranger XL (purchased 11/96) - 100,325 miles, 3.0 liter. Only maintenance has been brakes, tires, serpentine belt and at 90,000 had ball joints and front axle u-joints replaced. Oh yea, also had the float in the gas tank replaced... cured the mis-reading gas gauge that so many Ranger owners complain about. now it is dead-on..... ($4.00 part, but have to drop the gas tank to replace it (or remove the box)
I had 245000 on my 88 supercab 4x4 when my son totaled it. I ran great. I also had 145000 on my 92 stx supercab 4x4 and the only probem was my suspension needed to be relaced it was sagging really bad in the front. I put 2" spring spacers on it and it was straight again for a week until they ( spring spacers) just fell apart they were polyurethane. They both were great trucks and I miss them both. I had to trade my for a 89 Bronco, I need more interior room. I wanted to stay with a Ford and a pick up would not have worked. I have 3 kids and 5 dogs and it rains a lot up here on the coast and they dogs were getting too wet in the back and I hate canopies.
Take easy Ranger people

I have just over 200,000 miles on by 85 Ranger. (V-6 2.8L) I have replaced the battery, starter, carburator, transmission, drive shaft, and normal tune up stuff (plugs and wires), the distributer cap and the $5 part that is on the back of the distribuater (I can't remember what it is called) but it cost me $16 for the tool. I am currently having a problem with engine starting but I think that it is the negative battery cable since the new starter is not even turning. I am hoping that the cable is just not allowing power to get to the starter.
