SOURCE: how hard or easy is

Check my tips and tricks in my profile. If you have a 88 ranger 4 cyl. like mine. It's a piece of cake. I can't imagine the 6 cyl version being that much more complicated but I haven't worked on one. If you have any mechanical skills and common screwdriver bits or small sockets it should take you all of 30 mins. And like everything else I ever had to replace on the truck it costs $25 - $35.

SOURCE: where is the pcv valve located on a 2003 ford ranger

  • The PCV valve can be located in several places. The most common location is in a rubber grommet in the valve cover. It can be installed in the middle of the hose connections, as well as installed directly in the intake manifold.
  • Once the PCV valve is located, make sure all the PCV system hoses are properly connected and that they have no breaks or cracks.
  • Remove the air cleaner and inspect the air and crankcase filters. Crankcase blowby can clog these with oil. Clean or replace such filters.
  • Oil in the air cleaner assembly indicates that the PCV valve or hoses are plugged.
  • Make sure you check these and replace the valve and clean the hoses and air cleaner assembly.
  • When the PCV valve and hose are in satisfactory condition and there is oil in the air cleaner assembly, perform a cylinder compression test to check for worn cylinders and piston rings.

    How do I locate the ocb fuse for a 2003 ford ranger

    There are 2 fuse boxes, both clearly identify fuses. The easy one is under the hood driverside firewall. The not so easy one is located under the steering wheel to the right on the side wall. It is higher than you would expect and black like everything else under the there so do not give up (I almost did) it's there.

    Hope this helps.

    Is there voltage regualtor for ford ranger 2003

    Yes, but most are internal, now days. Inside the alternator. It is electronic and they work much more reliabily. If you have doubts about your unit, pull it off and have it bench tested.

    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.
