SOURCE: starter stays engaged
The starter relay on the fender is the most common cause of this condition. ,It is on passenger side feder in the engine compartment, it is round and the positive cable of the battery goes to it,

The easest way to find the starter is to open the hood and have some one crank the engine while you watch. If all else fails follow the positive cable from you battery it may go to the silonoid on the fire wall but the positive cable from the silnoid will go to the starter hope this helps

SOURCE: 1987 ford ranger 2.9 leaking oil
Hello, this is probaly your rear main seal on the back of your crankshaft. I would check and see if it is a two piece or a one piece main seal. You sound like a knowledable mechanic so this would not be to heard if you have taken a oil pan gasket off a ranger. I have a ranger and did an oil pan in a parking lot without jacking it up and removing the motor and shock like the manual says so I know that takes some skill. So, look up the seal in your Haynes or Chilton Auto Manual and I would replace this seal. Oil near your starter and the back of the oil pan is a classic sign of a rear main seal. Now, to get the seal in out you can refer to your manual and just remember to torque your rear main bearing cap to the proper torque when your done and also try to clean the bottom of your oil sump screen while your down there that would be a benefit later on. A tip to get a stuck seal out is to take an old wire tester the one that looks like an ice pick; this can push out a stuck rear oil seal very easily. I hope this helps your problem and I wish you the best of luck. If you have any other questions just email me ok.

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.
