Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
