I have a 1991 Ford Ranger 2.9,and I am having a heat problem I did change the thermostat but no heat yet,this is what I found so far. I checked top radiator and its hot,the bottom hose on radiator is cold....


ok in the engine compartment look at the radiator with the engine cold NOT ON" squeeze the hose with your fingers and feel if hose is crunchy or brittle if is possible a block could have happen locations /points at the vacuum heater valve gate on the heater hoses or a clogged up lower heater hose get a water hose and back flush the heater's hoses normal travel of water is from bottom to top so put the water hose to the tophose and flush backward and try to move the heater valve by finger and see if you get flow (mind you with hoses of the radiator DONT CRANK YOUR ENGINE)

2002 ford ranger starts cold. will idle fine but dies after i rev it up, then will not start again. replaced plugs, plug wires, and battery.


When the engine is idling, listen very carefully to with the hood open for something that sounds like rushing air. There might be a vacuum leak on the engine (all you need to do is make sure the vacuum hose is tight). This should be a rubber hose that plugs onto a hose barb or into a small hole in the engine. There is a piece call the pcv valve that you probably need to replace if you don't hear any air leaks.

Ford ranger 2002 6 4.0 LTR truck over heating.


The water is from the thermostat housing, fairly common leak. The ticking maybe from the timing chain cassette. You may have already had the cam timing slip (the cam gears are not keyed, they are held in place by torque alone. The oil gauge sounds like an electrical problem (either sender or sender wiring).

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger 4.0L. Somehow, it keeps blowing the PCV hose. I have replaced it 3 times in the last 2 months. The last time, I replaced the entire hose system (both elbows and plastic tube)...


It could only be pressure from the crankcase which would mean you have excessive blowby from the combustion chamber getting past the piston rings.
You should be able to feel this pressure when you disconnect the hose from the pcv valve. Or the pcv valve is not letting the blowby to get sucked into the engine to get re-burned.

How many miles on engine and is it running good.

Pcv valve


I know it attaches to a small hose and the body of the valve inserts into the head. Mine is on the right rear in a 2000 Explorer Sport. The guy at Autozone always is happy to help me when I ask...too short to get over the fender if I don't have a step or block to stand on. Not a very expensive part.
