SOURCE: wheel bolt pattern

According to everything I can find, yes.
It's a 5x114.3 bolt pattern (or 5x4.50)
However, your offset (from where the wheels bolt on to the edge of the rim) might be a little different depending on the wheel.

SOURCE: Starter came loose, need to know the size of bolt to use?

FROM: LustyKid:

You can ask the dealer what type of bolt it is. According the markings on the head of the bolt which indicates its hardness, you can purchase them also at any good automobile parts store which sells automotive bolts. They have books which tell them what bolt and size you need. Probably about a buck or two a piece.

Of the bat I would say they are most likey 5/8 grade 3 bolts, but you need to know the length perhaps about 3 inches long. But the auto shop parts place or the dealer can tell you exactly what it is, while you are there why not go ahead and buy them, but then they might be 5 bucks each at the dealer. Get the picture! As for the one you said snapped off, an EZ out should be able to remove it. Of course you would need to drill in the portion that is in the bell housing dead center, use a center punch to mark where you will start to drill very carfully drill according to the size of EZ out you will use. If you are lucky and the bolt left enough to grab it with a vise grip after the starter fell out you can remove it.

If the bolt is frozen in place. You can either heat it with a propane torch and very carefully heat the bolt a few minutes and see if it loosens up. Also check the other side of the bell housing to see if the bolt came out enough to grab it, in which case continue to tighten it, this will bring the bolt out, if you can reach it. Have a fire extingusher handy just in case you start a fire under the truck, ensure wire harneses are no where near the flame. If they are and can't be moved, wrapped them with a very wet towel while yo heat up the bolt making sure you don't flame the towel, if you are careful it can be done with no mishaps.

No heat, then try LIQUID WRENCH, and tap the bell housing to let the liquid work its way into the threads. Patience and lots of it will be required if you are a do it yourself. Otherwise how does $95/hour sound. That is what you are up against. And of course if you don't have a lift the more harder it will be to do. Provided you can raise the vehicle in jack stands high enought to work comfortably. You can accomplish the task in a reasonable amount of time. However if its outside and cold...........good gloves, warm chocolate or coffee, an old blanket to lay on. Check your weather reports is no fun working with cold hands and numb fingers.

Ensure your truck is safely jack stand. Don't want the truck falling on you while you are working. SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY. Or you can tow it to a muffler shop give the guy a few bucks let him pull the bolt out for you. Installing the starter, you can do yourself, unelss you want the guy to do it for you. Good Luck, let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: Starter Bolt

Obviously you do not have the one missing; therefore I would do one of two things... Take out one of the others, if there three, then no problem the other will hold till you get the other two back in. If the one you lost is broken off in the bell housing, then you must take off the starter and drill out the broken bolt and you can get a replacement from the Ford dealer, Pep Boys or a junk yard.

Good luck

SOURCE: the black plastic cover under the engine, all of

These are usually plastic clips sometimes called body or trim clips. They are two parts, the outer body, kind of looks like a screw, and a inner pin that sometimes looks like a smaller screw. this pin pushes in once you push the outer body in place causing its end to expand and hold the clip in place. You can get these from your local parts store or your dealer

I am putting a 99 ford explorer tranny in a 98 explorer sport with the 4.0 sohc engine. the bolts match perfect and the torque converter from the 99 tranny lines up perfect with the fly wheel. when I go to...

The torque converter is not all the way in the transmission. Pull the transmission back out(unfortunately) and you will need to shake and wiggle while lightly pushing the torque converter into the transmission. Once it goes over the splines for the pump, you will know and the space between it and the transmission housing will be minimal.

Does the 3.0l transmission fit on the 4.0l engine


There are 5 automatic transmissions used in the Ford Ranger, Explorer and Mountaineer. They may be identified by checking the transmission code on the Safety Standard Certification Label attached to the driver's side door post, in the space marked Trans. The transmissions can also be identified by a tag attached to the lower left hand extension attaching bolt. The transmission codes are as follows:
  • 1991–94 code T is for the A4LD transmission
  • 1995–99 code T is for the 4R44E (2.3L, 2.5L & 3.0L) or 4R55E (4.0L) transmission
  • 1996–99 code U is for the 4R70W (5.0L) transmission
  • 1997–99 code D is for the 5R55E (5-speed automatic) transmission
So, what you need to do now is...establish from a FORD workshop, whether both the A4LD and 4R55E transmissions share the same components and mounting dimensions.

1988 ford ranger 2.9l v6 runs great except a little ticking under the hood. main concern though is that it wont shift into drive when i hit the freeway. about 35 top speed. ideas?

I have a 91 ranger. There are two band adjustments on the transmission that is supposed to be adjusted every 60K miles. There are two adjustments, one for overdrive and the other for everything else. The overdrive adjustment is closest to the front of the transmission and the other is back behind it closer to the shift lever on the driver side. The locking nut is a 19" and there is a tool you get for the other nut. I have found a 3/8th (I believe) 12 point socket will fit on the square. You loosen the lock nut, then you tighten the band adjustment bolt to 10 foot pounds. Then you back the bolt off 2 full turns, then hold it in place while re-tightening your lock nut. I had to adjust my bolt in 1/4 turns at a time after test driving to get the transmission to shift just right.

Will '89 Ranger leaf springs fit a '99 Ford Ranger 4x4?

Measure the distance from bolt to bolt, and to the center. If they match then, they match, if not you will have to check the numbers with fords tolerances to avoid an axle wrap. But it should fit, maybe just a little stiffer of a suspension from the 4x4.
