SOURCE: No heat at all in my 2002 Ford Ranger

Yessir, Open the hood and find your heater hoses when hot grab both of them while engine is running, you should feel heat like REAL hot on one or both of them... If it is on just one you have a restriction in the heater core. If they are both hot my bet is an air bubble in the heater core. You can park it uphill and open the radiator cap SLOWLY with a towel this will burp air that has made it to your radiator. OR you can turn off the engine let it cool and pull off the UPPER hose....Hold it higher than your radiator and then have some help and fill the tube with water this will force air into the tube from your heater core.

SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating

I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

You may need someone to help you do the job.The return wire usually go to a relay on your fuse box on the engine compartment.Then from relay to the starter.

SOURCE: bought truck from private seller...3

you need to change the oil every 3 thousand miles and stay on top of your automatic transmission fluid. Keep the radiator full and make sure you are protected from freezing. Keep terminals clean on battery brushing away any trace of debris. As for the problem, perhaps your best bet would to be to carry a few spare flywheels in your trunk just in case a crack pops up again in one of them.

Hello. A valve job is not an easy task. In addition, the shop fees will be in the hundreds. A rebuilt head on ebay is my ticket. If you know cars, and have tools, go for it. If not, a mis aligned timing set can ruin your engine - immediately. This one you need to find a friend who is saavy, or study a bunch of Youtube videos. Your going to need help on this one.

Its not the computer. Mis-fires can be many different causes from, Injectors that are clogged, to bad wires, to a cracked head, sticking valves. You are going to need to run more test to narrow it down. I would start with running Seafoam or some other type of injector cleaner through your system and then go from there.
