You do not need to drop the tank for access. Flip the rear seatcushion on the drivers side out of the way, pull back the carpet. You should see an access plate. Remove the plate, and the fuel pump...

This is not making a lot of sense to me, but I haven't really been involved with fuel trim stuff. The trim and the O2 readings don't make sense. If b2 trim is ~100% regularly, and the O2's are...

The bank 2 downstream sensor should be relatively steady. If the converter is working. If the converter is being overworked, who knows. I don't think 100% trim is a good sign, especially when bank...

Mechanically, it will bolt right in. You will have a totally different ignition system, and the injectors are SEFI rather than bank pulsed. To make it work in the Ranger, you have to find out if...

If this is the shift tube on the steering column, you may have dislodged the actual ignition switch or the connector. Other than that, the MLPS- lever position sensor - which prevents cranking in...

You might consider checking the qualifications of your current mechanics. The pulley alignment and looseness problems don't take much skill to fix. The mis-alignment seems to be a possible...

If you have a laptop with a USB port, you can get a scan tool for $20 or less, and the program is free. Search for forscan software. I think it stands for Ford Scan ..

Some calculations:

51l X .943 l/qt divided by 4 quarts / gallon = 12.02 gallons

336km X .62 km/mi == 208 miles

208 / 12 == 25 miles per gallon.

For a 3.0 that is 11 years old, that is...
