Question about Ford Ranger
When going down the road the front left cv axle keeps comming out and making a grinding noise, almost like its not held in by something that should. i can wiggle it up and down underneath the truck when siting
I get the impression the cv joint has broken up. Jack up the side that's noisy and check hub for wheel bearing movement and then remove the boot clip and peek inside. I don't think it sounds very happy. It may be simpler and cheaper to get a whole shaft if the current one is badly damaged. Its not a major task but would need the radius arm joints split to allow the hub to swing away enough to release the shaft. Be prepared for the front diff to leak oil when removing the shaft unless its flange mounted on a ring of small bolts. Don't drive it until its fixed, you risk a wheel lock up which is not good news.

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?
on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating
I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

CV joints yes look at the rubber boots for damage. You can get a replacement boot but if you do remove all the old grease to remove any dirt that is cousing your problem.

It sounds like you may have a wheel hub bearing going bad . Jack up front of truck and spin each tire and listen for any noise it should be quite and spinfree if you find it's bad you must replace the whole hub you can't just repair the bearing this is a common problem on the f250
