The problem could be anything from a power steering hose has leaked out all the power steering fluid or the steering rack could be leaking fluid. Has the car made any strange noises when turning the steering wheel? A car that is loosing power steering fluid will at some point lose so much fluid as to make the power steering pump cavitate (starve for fluid) and the pump will make a high pitched noise when it has too little fluid in it. I can't remember if the 1996 ranger had only one belt on the engine or if the power steering has it own seperate belt. The belt being gone would prevent the power steering from working but if you only have one belt the car would also overheat.

My power sterring pump went out in my 97 ford ranger how can i fix it


If you are certain it is a bad pump, replacements are available at most auto parts stores, or a wrecking yard. I assume you've checked fluid level, belt and pulleys, hoses; as well as the condition of the steering box, or rack and pinion. There is a forum for rangers with "how to" for your pump: http://www.ranger-forums.com/engine-drivetrain-122/how-change-power-steering-pump-104580/
I hope this helps you. If you're going to be doing much work on your Ford, I suggest you buy a service manual for it. They make life much easier; though we are glad to help.

How do you replace the heater core in a 1996 Ford


I have not seen this particular truck, but on all the Fords I've seen, the plenum is on the passenger side, under or near the glove box. Usually the blower motor is to the right, and the plenum toward the center of the cab. I hope this steers you in the right direction. Doesn't Haynes give you a picture? I find many after market manuals tell you everything you already know, but not what you need to know.

1996 ford ranger odometer / trip stopped working


Since your speedometers work, the problem is in the gearing to the trip and mileage odometers. Simple problem, major pain to fix but, remove instrument cluster - you'll have to remove speedo cable to get it out. Use the old Mark I eyeball to check for broken parts. Might even have to drop steering column - disconnect air bag first!
