Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Checked all vacuum lines. Ford service dept. says no compression on 5 & 6. Drained oil and found a small spring (slightly larger than the small spring in an ink pen. Where could this spring of come from?
Sounds as if you have had work done before. If the head covers were off before, then its agood likelyhood the spring could of come right out of someones pocket as they working on it. Things can slide down into the journel through the oil ports. You would be surprised to find just how many thing I have found from mechanics working on my engines of the past. Small washers and even small bolts can fall into the pan. This is why there is a pan in the first place to catch stuff. But if the engine has never been opened, then we are talking a whole other story. small smog values have small springs in them. One of these could of come apart and fall into oil passages. Some are large enough to pass small parts. If your engins is running rough its a good bet that one of the smog controllers came apart. Check egr value, its small enough to be suspected. It has a small spring inside of it. New ones are under 12.00 bucks. So I'd look there first.
