SOURCE: 1988 ford ranger

Though it's a bit late from when this question was asked... But... I replaced my timing belt before it broke. Like anything else on my 88 ford ranger it was the easiest thing! If your really carefull and remove the plugs! You must remove the plugs because of the compression that's there waiting to fire when you next start the car. Dissasemble the fan, fan cover, and the pulley and the plastic cover. Not exactly in that order, just what you need to access the belt. Score or mark or paint where one or two teeth of each pulley is in reference to a non moving part of the truck (you can rotate the whole thing to a convient setup by hand) make sure when you rotate the assembly it feels somewhat free you can see and feel that there is no tension on the belt in ANY area. When you have all the marks set up loosen the bolt holding the tensioner use a bar to move the tensioner out of the way just enough then tighten the bolt on the tensioner, that will keep it locked open while you simply and carefully slide out the belt then slide in the new belt keeping the marks 'still', just go slow and keep your eyes open. Maybe I just got lucky...But the theory is sound and worked for me.
Probably could use a diming light to make sure but I don't have one and the truck still runs fine. Oh and by the way... if you ever need to replace the heater core it'll take you all of 20 mins if you have even the basic of abilities and the right screw driver :)

SOURCE: have a 2000 ford ranger, 2.5 engine, timing belt

Damn. Bad news friend. That truck has what is known as an "interference engine" Which meant that if the timing belt brakes while the engine is running the pistons will hit the open valves and destroy them and possibly damaging the pistons as well.

So now you either need to do 1 of 3 things, 1 have the head removed and rebuilt, 2 have the head removed and replaced with a new/used one, or 3 replace the engine entirely.

If you replaced the belt yourself then you are probably capable of replacing the head yourself. Just get one from a junk yard, swap it for the old one and your good to go. While you have the head off take a look at the pistons to make sure they are ok.

Personally I would just swap the engine for one from the boneyard. They are relatively cheap. I'm sure this is the last thing you wanted to hear but unfortunately until you do one of the 3 things i mentioned she will never run again. Good luck, If you have any more questions shoot me an email 19wrench75@gmail.com

These are not very good but all I could find. The cam mark is about the 7 o'clock position. I cannot see the crankshaft marks in the side pic.

Timing belt broke on 1999 ford ranger


You are extremely lucky as your Ranger 2.5 L is not an interference engine so you will have no internal engine damage. Both V6 engines use a timing chain and do not use a belt so you must have a 4 cylinder. The belt on your 2.5L should have been replaced at 120,000 miles or 10 years. All you need to do is have a new belt installed and inspect the tensioner and you will be good to go. You will need a Gates belt # T276. Unless you are skilled have the belt replaced by a professional.

Need a timing belt diagram for ford ranger 3.2L engine


Do you mean timing belt or serpentine belt? The timing belt on vehicles only goes on one way - over 2 or 3 pulleys with a possible tensioner holding the proper tension on it.
The serpentine belt is the outer, visible belt that runs the water pump, alternator, power steering pump and air conditioner pulleys with another one or 2 pulleys in there just for fun. There should be a routing diagram for that belt on a decal attached to the underside of the hood - or on the radiator shroud. While it may seem to go on other ways it is crucial to install it correctly. Compare the old belt (if it is available) to the new one for proper length. The correct routing of the proper belt makes sure that all the equipment pulleys are rotating in the proper direction.

2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain


Hello;
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
Thanks;
