Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab

2 Answers

99 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 off road. Sounds like brakes rubbing as driving along. Starts after making any hard turn left or right. Not brakes. Mechanic did not dive with windows down for over 5 mins. About to take to Ford dealer, but would like to have some idea or something to look for on/under the truck.

I had the same problem, it started out only when I was making turns but then it was all the time,, it turned out to be the camshaft
syncronizer... it sounds like there are birds chirping right behind you radio and a/c controls...to check it locate the syncronizer at the very back of the engine.. it is tucked back up under the center
of the upper intake plenium...it will have a two or three prong plug going straight into... once you locate it have the truck running and
and try pressing down gently on the sensor cap to see if it make
the noise that you are hearing... if so then you will need to replace
it... not fun...dealer wants $850.00 to replace.. it takes about 6 hours to replace. you will have to remove the upper intake and disconnect most everything on the top of the engine....hope this helps.... and I hope it is not the camshaft syncronizer for your sake...if you want to see what it looks like go to rock auto.com
and search for it and pull up the picture....

WHEN YOU FEEL THEY ARE DRAGGING, Break open the bleeder to see if there is pressure.

Push the 4x4 button, as you drive there is a bang sound from the front end, sounds like the drivers side where the noise is coming from, Under no load not so noticeable. Universals seem fine, could it be...


I just purchased a 1992 Ranger XLT and had taken it into a shop to have some alignment and brake work done before giving it to my grandson for his 18th birthday. Upon picking it up, I noticed a similar banging noise coming from the front end mostly when making a hard-right turn. I took it back to the shop and upon further inspection was told that I needed to replace the hubs as the drivers side hub lock had ceased up (the 4X4 lock knob) and if they weren't replaced soon, it could cause major problems with the axle. I was told it would cost around $400 and since they're sold in pairs, you may as well replace both even though only one needs it.

I hope this helps.

Rubbing/grinding noise


Usually the strut bearing will make this noise upon turning a corner and hitting a rut or pot hole when turning. A wheel bearing will make a low pitched whinning sound constantly

1984 ford ranger 4x4 2.8l is pulling hard to left and front left wheel is smoking and locking up


Dear Smoking And Locking.......
It sure sounds to me like you are having a brake issue on the lf of your vehicle..Obviously your lf brake assembly is not releasing.You could have a seized caliper, a restricted lf brake hose, a restricted brake line, or pad material that is unsafe, it's time to get those brakes inspected ASAP!!!! Brake repairs on that year of vehicle are fairly simple for the first timer....if you need any more help just get back to me ...THX HOPE I COULD HELP!!

My 2004 ford ranger xlt 4x4 won't go into any forward gears, only reverse. When it does go in reverse the engagement is hard?


Sounds like the forward clutches and/or low-reverse one-way clutch. Either way it sounds like it's time for an overhaul

2004 Ranger XLT 4x4 (4.0 V6) fuel pump/system problem


if the pump has been changed twice its probally not the pump. could be the fuel pressure regulator. the computer will still throw a fuel code but in order to really diagnose the problem they would have to test the fuel pressure.

99 Ford Ranger xlt 4x4 The 4 wheel drive won't always kick in Looks like the electrics are working but the hubs just won't always kick in.


I had the same problem w/ my 99. If you have auto hubs, they work off a vacuum pump which is located under your air filter box..check to make sure it is working..is that is working it's on to the hubs..the locking hubs are the black caps in the center of each from wheel..they snap on and off..hard to take off without breaking a few tabs..the seal one or both may not be holding the vacuum created by the motor under the airfilter box. if one of the hubs has a vacuum leak neither side will work, it's all or nothing..aside from the electric parts on the dash and side of transmition that's about everything there is to know about 1999 ranger four wheel system.
