Question about 1984 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

1984 Ford Ranger only 10-12 mpg and cold blooded and no power

Sometimes when I shut it off after a few minutes it will run better.
Tonight I went 7 Miles and let it Idle for 10 minutes and headed home again and had no power. 18 miles and I had used even more than a quarter tank of fuel. If I don't have high RPMs it or lug it in the least it bucks and kicks and has no power.

Any solutions?

No not the fuel pump. You most likely need to do a tune uo. New spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter. Deffinently change out the spark plugs. I would suggest using autocraft, autolite (fords brand} or some densos or ngk for better performance. Hope this solves your problem.

Heater in 1984 Bronco blows cold.


There may be a few reasons for this - just check them all in turn.

  1. Low coolant - Check your expansion bottle.
  2. Airlock in heater matrix - Can you hear trickling water sometimes, have you changed the coolant or had to top-up? - Bleed the air out through bleed valve or loosen a hose while engine is running.
  3. Faulty heater valve. This can actually be the link to control the heater valve rather than the valve itself. - How does the hot/ cold switch feel? - is it very loose ? Sometimes the valve gets stiff, and the next time it is moved, the control wire snaps. Often the valve needs replacing and the broken link to cure it. Not a major expense - just fiddly to do.
  4. Blocked heater matrix - from using radweld or similar quick-fixes. Replacement is better than flushing.

1992 ford ranger pickup 4 cyl. 5 speed


Your engine coolant temp. sensor is going bad. What happens is that your engine computer is receiving a bad signal from the ECT sensor and it thinks it's 40 below. An example is it basically slams the choke shut if it had a distributor. When it cools off, I'll bet it runs just fine.
