Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

Ford Ranger wont pass emissions

Have a 1992 Ford Ranger extended cab 4x4,4.0 liter that I am trying to put in a road worthy condition again. I have owned the truck for 11 years, but for the last five it has sat and started only occasionally, It was parked because the clutch went out and the truck was more of a spare truck so I had the work done when the extra money was available. The clutch was replaced 3 years ago and over the last year I had all the basics done to put it on the road, brakes, master cylinder, oil changed, U-joints etc. I have hit tough times financially and have decided to put it for sale but it will not pass emmissions. The part that failed was the O2 to gas ratio and the numbers were way over the norm ( The gas that was in the when it was parked had been used up by leeting the truck idle till it ran the tank dry. and it had a kerosene type order in the tank and exhaust fumes.) I recently drove the truck to another location and ran it down the interstate at speeds from 65 to 75 mph. The entire drive the truck sputtered and a few times I thought that it was going to stall on acceleration. I seemed to me that I was hearing a sound like it was sucking air. I do not have hardly any skills with a wrench and vehicle work and usually take my vehicles to people that have the knowledge to fix it right, but I cant afford to this time and need to sell it soon. can I please get advice on what to try and where to start? the people from emissions offered no help at all. I will take any advice and try it then let you know the results from the advice. Thanks in advance for your time.

You may want to check the rubber lines and plastic lines under the hood for cracks or holes. the problem sounds like a possible vacume leek although other components could be the problem this would be the first thing I would look for. if this was helpful please leave good feedback..if a vacume line is disconnected it will also create this problem

SOURCE: 86 isuzu clutch- master cylinder ran dry

Did you bleed the system? There is probably a bleeder on the slave cylinder and you may need to jemmy the selector fork/ Also look fro a damper valve between the master and slave cylinder... it will need bleeding too.

This year of ranger had a few flaws, In one case, a break power booster was robbing the vacumm, you can test this by plugging it off and seeing the differance, but you will have limited brakes. This model year had a problem with a vacuum leak on the manifold. You can check these in many ways, but please don't use starting fluid. The rear of the manifold usually on the drivers side where it seals to the block.
Also, in 2 other cases a cracked head has gave me the same problem. It is caused from a loss of vacuum.

SOURCE: 03 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab 4x4 Death Wobble at around 70 mph???

I have a 2004 with the same problem. It is actually a defect on dodges behave. The steering box flexes on the frame when you hit a bump. Bd diesel puts out a steering box brace and a new track bar with the right geometry to fix it. I had replaced everything under my front end before i saw the article in off road adventures magazine. I contacted dodge and asked why this was not a safety recall. They said they no nothing about it and refused to help me. I called the National Highway Transportation Safety Board and filed a complaint. I suggest you do the same and anyone else who reads this. If you need to contact me email me at kazi94@mailcity.com. maybe we can get enough people to complain before someone dies from this.

The generation of the Mazda B-Series produced from 1994-2000 also shared its platform with the Ford Ranger. Initially these B-Series trucks came in base, midgrade SE and luxury-level LE trims in standard- or extended-cab body styles. There was a choice of three engines: a 2.3-liter inline-4 (98 hp), a 3.0-liter V6 (140 hp) and a 4.0-liter V6 (160 hp). Transmissions consisted of either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. The V6 versions offered a choice of 2WD or 4WD.
Model-year 1995 saw the debut of a driver-side front airbag and ABS as standard equipment for all B4000s and 2WD B3000s, while '96 saw the addition of a passenger-side front airbag in the upper trims. A five-speed automatic debuted for the B4000 in '97. A revamp took place for 1998 that included freshened styling, a stronger 2.5-liter four and a revised front suspension for better ride and handling dynamics. For 1999, the Cab Plus 4 debuted (essentially an extended cab with a pair of reverse-opening rear doors) as did the flashy Troy Lee edition.
At the time, we noted in Mazda B-Series reviews that the truck offered a good selection of configurations and attractive styling. Downsides included the limited functionality of the truck's rear seats and the lack of horsepower from even the top V6 engine.
Previous to 1994, the B-Series was all Mazda. The B2200 with its 2.2-liter inline-4 and the B2600i with its 2.6-liter V6 were offered in standard and extended cabs. A five-speed manual transmission was standard with a four-speed automatic optional, while only the B2600i could be had with four-wheel drive. Although these were decent trucks, the chance of finding one of these workhorses in good condition is slim, as they're well into their retirement years.
