SOURCE: 1987 Ford Ranger stuck in 4 wheel drive!!

Chances are the linkage for the transfer case is out of adjustment try loosening the adjuster bolt and put the 4WD shifter into the position 4WD high or low (depending upon which position it's lockup in) then lock down the adjuster bolt, try to shift out of 4wd sometimes you need to go forward and backward with the vehicle to get it out of 4wd, when you get it out of 4wd you may have to fine tune the adjustment to get it to engage and disengage smoothly it's a trial and error thing keep resetting adjuster until you get the desired effect.

Why is my 1987 ford ranger acking iike its loosing fule pressurs win diving

It may BE losing fuel pressure, Robert. Check the fuel pressure and flow rate at the fuel rail. Filter, plugs, and cap have nothing to do with fuel pressure - your fuel pump and pressure regulator are the only things that can change fuel pressure very much.

Ford voltage regulator

voltage regulators control the output of an alternator . Flickering lights are an indication of loose bulbs loose wiring and connections -- bad earths and faulty modulators

1987 ford fuel pump runs for 3 seconds then runs out of fuel and shuts off what keeps the fuel pump on after it starts

It could be the problem. The old wire may have been delivering less voltage than the new wire. Now that the wiring is good, too much voltage is going to the feulpump regulator. You need to have the fuel pressure checked.

Headlight switch replaced on my 1987 ford ranger but still no lights

Have you checked fuses, there should be one for left and one for right. And I am assuming no high beam either but have you changed bulbs. If you have done both then it is time to start tracing wires and verifying voltage and grounding.

MY 95 ford ranger keeps blowing the voltage regulator fuse. the battery and alternator checks good

Well... If there is a fuse for a Voltage Regulator...then it stands that is the fuse is blowing, then the output from the voltage regulator is exceeding specs. The fuse is protecting the circuits the receive power in that circuit. Replace the voltage regulator. You should be good to go.

When i accelerate the battery light comes on the dash and the needle goes to high side in moy 02 ford ranger 4.0 i changed the battery, altenator, and belt what could it be?

This sounds like a voltage regulator problem, the voltage regulator is built into the altenator, check your connections to the altenator specfically the ones that plug in, make sure they are secure. The plug in connections provide signal for how much output is needed from the altenator, the regulator provides the output. Check the battery voltage with a voltmeter, turn on everything electrical, rev up engine and see if voltage goes over 14.5 volts, it should be steady. Hope this helps, let me know.

Where is the voltage regulator for 1987 ford mustang

A bad constant voltage regulator, located on the back of the instrument cluster, will prevent the gauges from reading correctly or at all. It can be inspected with a test light.
