Question about Ford Ranger

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger Edge 3.0 5 speed. The engine runs fine and shifts good. But when you at higher RPMs and push in the clutch, you hear a rattling noise. Only other time you can hear the rattle

Just a Rattle at high RPMs when you push in the clutch or rev it super high.

Check to see if the throw out bearing in the clutch is dry. Might need to replace it.

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

Sounds to me like the clutch is worn and slipping. If there is chatter when engaging the clutch, it may also be a worn throwout bearing.

Hello Blue, In order to ease your mind some the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing and it will not be in a clutch kit but needs to be replaced and when you have replaced the clutch assembly and slave cylinder,I recommend using DOT5 brake fluid which has a higher boiling point than DOT3 to bleed the system.

havent a clue here ,one cylinder now another missing ,only one thing comes to mind here and thats the coil pack ,check the voltage across the battery with engine running at 1500rpm and if its higher than 15.5 volts of their abouts then the alternator regulator is playing up and this would cause problems with the coil pack or the ECU ,also the radio could blow and lots of bulbs.Other that this i would need to get my greasy hands on it and give the magic hammer treatment

2002 Ranger Edge 3.0 Flex fuel tranny??

This is not specific to a Ranger 3.0, but could apply to nearly any gasoline vehicle. 1) Start by eliminating fuel system issues. Run out all of the E-85 and fill with regular unleaded and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner. Check your fuel filter for blockages, and replace if needed. Check the pressure at the fuel injector rail, and yes you can use a tire pressure gauge, BUT WEAR EYE PROTECTION. 2) Check the vacuum lines for leaks. The easiest way to do this is take an UNLIT propane torch with the gas valve cracked slightly, and run it around the vacuum lines. If there is a leak, the engine will speed up. 3) If there are no leaks and your manifold vacuum is normal (buy a vacuum gauge, it comes in handy for diagnosing many problems and is pretty inexpensive), take it to a reputable transmission shop to have them change the filter and fluid, adjust the bands, and check the vacuum modulator. Manifold vacuum normally drops during acceleration, and if you have a vacuum leak or a defective vacuum modulator, your automatic transmission will not shift correctly. 4) If none of this works, push the piece of **** off the nearest cliff.
