SOURCE: my ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

SOURCE: Ford Ranger diesel has noisy tappets until truck

Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

I drove a diesel Chevy and had the same problem.

I reduced the noise by dropping my oil to a lower viscosity at the low end and keeping the high end the same. i.e. If O.E.M. recommends a 10W30 dropped to a 5W30. This will give you coverage at the high side and lower viscosity at the low end.

There are after market additives which are formulated to lubricate the tappets. Any parts store should be able to recommend which is best. Follow the instructions and do not add too much. They contain a "sticky" nature which could defeat the dropping of your lower viscosity.

I trust this answered your question. If I can be of further help, let me know.

SOURCE: changing clutch on a 2003 ford ranger how do I

Well to start, you need to remove the shifter from the transmission. Then remove the driveshaft. Then unplug the plugs from the side of the transmission and disconnect the clutch fluid line. Then remove the crossmember. Unbolt the bellhousing bolts. Then have a friend help you remove the transmission. Then unbolt the clutch.

Hi.. Can u help me with the torque settings for the 2003 ford ranger TDI diesel cylinder head pls.

I looked in my data and I don't have that information but thought I would mention the last few times I bought cylinder head gaskets the tightening instructions were included.

These days we refer more to tightening instructions than to torque wrench data because the majority of engines are built by robots and they seem to have difficulty with setting and using a torque wrench and so they are programmed to tighten the bolts a certain number of degrees and so later we are condemned to doing the same.

Many manufacturers recommend always fitting new bolts and once everything is prepared and the bolt threads and washer faces are greased, they are installed and tightened to a low initial torque value of usually around 20 lbft. From that point each bolt is tightened in turn, usually in three or more stages by the amount specified.

For example one engine I am familiar with requires an initial torque of 18 lbft and then tightening 60 + 60 + 60 degrees with a further 30 - 60 degrees after warmup and cooling. The bolts are tightened in a spiral pattern from the centre outwards.

It is extremely important that each stage is completed without distraction as it is often disastrous to lose your place and tighten one bolt too much. It is best to make a plan and have an assistant observe you and to mark each bolt and each stage on the plan as it is completed.
