Question about 1994 Ford Ranger Supercab

Problems with 94 Ford Ranger

I just got a slightly used 1994 Ford Ranger XLT and it has a few problems, such as:

The engine sometimes cuts off after putting it in Drive

The truck stops accelerating after a few minutes, stalls, then starts back up

And finally the windows will not roll up correctly, sometimes falling into the door and sometimes I have to hold the window steady to roll it up.


I'm 18 and this is my first car/truck and I know very little about cars. Does anyone know how to fix this? Or should I just trade it in for another one?

    It could be a sensor called TPS to make sure Beg or borrow a code reader (some autoparts stores let you use them for free) most good public library's have a set of chilton manuals find the one for your truck there's lots of idea's in there



    as for the window on a truck that old the rubber moulding that guides the window is likely rotted out

    these should still be avail from the dealer and only require simple hand tools and an afternoon to install

Sounds like corroded ground wires. Locate the ground wires to chassis and body, if they appear rusty or loose, clean with wire brush and liquid wrench and tighten them well.

How do i replace front brake hoses on 94 ford ranger


Here is a good forum to find your answer.
http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exterior-tech/88010-brake-line-hose-replacement-94-xlt-2-dr.html

A few few things to remember: Purchase fresh new brake fluid and have a clean MityVac pump (both can be purchased through AutoZone, NAPA, Orielys, etc..) , plenty of clean rags, brake line clamps to stop the fluid from leaking when you initially pull the line off.
Be prepared to bleed ALL the brakes after changing the lines. When bleeding the brakes (after replacing the old lines) work from the caliper that is the longest distance from the brake master cylinder first to the shortest distance line.

Check the clutch adjustment. If your system uses a clutch master cylinder, the release components are suspect.
Your description indicates that the clutch is not fully releasing. Worst case is new clutch and both bearings....not the end of the world but more costly than release systems..
