SOURCE: 1998 ford ranger ac only works below 45 mph blows hot at higher

I would say that this problem is caused be a vaccum leak. Ford was known for using vaccum in their heat/ac systems....and you loose vaccum as you press the accellerator.

I had this issue with a Grand Marquis....and was a pain to find the leak.

You really need to look over all the vaccum lines that run under the dash.

SOURCE: I cant find the EGR valve on my 1998 Ford Contour

It has to have a tube or pipe going to it
from the exhaust manifold

It has to have vacuum hoses going to it
That is a dead give away

It could have a wiring harness connected to it.

As you said it has to let exhaust gases into the intake

Look for a picture on the internet or ask a neighbor
to show you

How do you remove the fuel line from the intake manifold on a Ford Ranger XLT with a 2.9 Litre engine?

Not sure what you are saying that broke.
If the line is plastic and the fitting has no place for a wrench, you use a tool made to release the spring tension inside the connector. AC lines use the same setup.
If the plastic line is broke, you may be able to get a repair kit at your local auto parts store. The fuel line is designed to be replaced all in one piece, not repaired.

Why does ford use coolant in the throttle body of 1998 ford ranger 2.5l fuel injection engine ?

they ran coolant lines to the throttle bodies for emission purposes the coolant actually is used to heat the air entering the intake manifold to help preheat your air fuel mixture so less hydrocarbons are made during the combustion cycle however this preheating reduces actual horsepower produced at the flywheel by as much as 10% according to many dyno tests, there really is no proof of any mileage gain or other benefit to this design add , on the older cars and trucks if you bypassed this you had to readjust your timing so you motor would not ping or get a detonation knock under acceleration

Code P1537$10 whats code and how do I fix it,it is on a 2002 ford ranger with 2.3 liter engine.

DTC P1537 - Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open Bank 1 and 2

It controls the length and speed of incoming air for a certain engine rpm to optimize swirl, efficiency, and minimize knocking. It's long and fast for low rpm and idle, short and large volume for higher engine loads. How's your truck running? I'm guessing it would be lean at idle if it's stuck open. I would look at your vacuum lines on the intake manifold. I think it would be vacuum operated.

Keep in mind that the IMRC Valves are located on the back of the intake and are listed as an item that the dealer needs to diagnose and repair.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1997 Ford Ranger with a 4.0 ltr V-6 engine the engine runs rough and the chk. eng. light is on, I took the vehicle to a shop and they told me it was a leaky lower intake manifold, I want to know...

buy a can of carb cleaner with the little red nossle
start the truck and take the can of carb cleaner and spray small amounts around the intake don't forget to also do the vaccum lines if you have a leak the engine will rev up ( thoes trucks with the 4.0 was good for doing that
