Google the codes to learn what they are

Then diagnose the system that set the fault codes,
to find a problem

Fuel Filter-- as you know--has no wires going to it

The fuel filter will last for 3 to 6 years, if their is
nothing in the fuel tank to get it clogged up

Changing a fuel filter is NOT a FIX for Anything

SOURCE: 1992 Ford Ranger fuel filter replacement. Where is

Inside the frame rail on the driver's side. You'll need a 5/16" (8mm) socket if it is the type that is held in with a hose clamp, or a 10mm if it is the bracket type. Some of the lines are held in with white plastic clips, others by special springs. If it is the type without clips, you'll need a special tool to release them. Also, if it is the type without the plastic clips, make sure they gave you the right filter. If the new filter is shorter than the old DO NOT PUT IT ON. If you do, you will have to cut it off next time you have to change it as the tool will not fit in. The two filters look the same except the tubes are longer on the non-clip filter.

SOURCE: My 2000 Ford Ranger keeps showing codes PO 171 and

These codes mean that the oxygen sensor is reading too "Lean" on both the left and right cylinder banks and the engine control system can't compensate any further to solve the problem. You may have a dirty or failing Mass Airflow Sensor that is miscalcuating the amount of airflow the engine is taking in which in turn can cause both of these codes to set. If the sensor is reporting less air than the engine is actually taking in then the engine computer will add only the amount of fuel it should based on what it was told by the sensor which will cause both cylinder banks to run "lean". There could be something else going on such as having two bad oxygen sensors [very rare] but I do see these two codes together quite often and usually its the sensor that is causing it. Hope this helps a bit!

SOURCE: how do i change fuel filter on 1987 ford ranger

look under truck at drivers side door for the fuel lines. they will go into filter there and back out of filter there.you're looking for a round canister,you'll need to release the pressure by removing the gas acp also.there will be a plastic clip on both sides of the filter holding the fuel lines into the filter. pull those clips out with needle nose pliers, install the filter with the flow towards the front of motor, reinstall those clips unless new ones came with the new filter.keep in mind that you are under the truck looking up at filter, eye protection is a must!!!! hope this helps!!

What would make my 1987 ford ranger run good at start , go for 5 to ten miles and loose all power . i have already replaced fuel filter


check for codes this may help if their is one, some codes will set without turning on the check engines light.have the fuel pressure checked with a gage as a bad fuel pump will act this way. have the tps(throttle position sensor) checked for voltage dropouts as you move the throttle. the catalytic converter could be plugging up and need replacing. if you have an ignition problem usually a miss will be noticed. on other thing I can think of is possibly a transmission problem, I can only recall one that I`ve run across that this was the cause.

I ran out of gas in my 05 Ford Ranger yesterday and since it wont start. I tried the relay switch by the passenger feet... Any help please??


I would recommend you change the fuel filter and then see if it will start with at last 3 gallon of fuel in the tank. If it still will not start try using some spray starter fluid to get it going.

Check engine light is on,codes 171,174,system lean,codes came back as 2 oxygen sensor's before cat/conv,do they need to be replaced or could it be something else causing it, any help would be great!!!


O2 SENSORS ARE BAD MOST LIKELY I WOULD CHANGE THEM DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR 5 MIN. ( IF YOU DONT HAVE A SCANNER) THIS WILL RESET YOUR COMPUTER AND SHOULD MAKE THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT GO OUT.
