Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

2000 Ford Ranger pickup, 3.0 litre, V-6 gets sluggish while driving, finally stalls then stops. I have to wait for a short while, then starts up again. I did notice that the temperature gauge goes into hot only while it is in the sluggish mode. I have had several sensors change and the same problems persist.

From your description it sounds like your engine is overheating. Make sure you have enough coolant in the radiator and the coolant reseviour. Check your hoses, radiator, and waterpump for leaks. Have your thermostat replaced if it needs to be. If you can't get hot air from your vents when the engine is heated up it most likely means your water pump impeller is broke and it's not circulating coolant.

1988 ford ranger 2.9 ltr engine stalls while driving , restarts in a few minutes usually


There are several possibilities, but based on how you described the symptoms I suggest a profile igniton pickup. On these systems the failure usually begins as dropping a cylinder occasionally,like a misfire,mostly during high underhood temperatures,will manifest into stalling and finally into a stall with no resart condition. Symptoms are most likely to occur in summer. The pickup is inside the distributor and the distributor must be disassembled to install it,the trickiest part being the removal and installation of the distributor drive gear. They are iron and easily broken. The simplest solution is another distributor. The ignition modules typically do not fail in this manner,but this is classic for the pickup coil. A code for loss of pip signal should be present, it is possible for a code to not be present,though very unlikely. Having worked on these systems for years this would be my first area of diagnosis.

I have a 2000 Ranger with 4 litre v-6. Lately when I start it, it doesn't start the first time I crank it. It starts alright the next time. What would cause this situation?


Try a general tune up; new spark plugs ( properly gapped), new spark plug wires, new air filter, new oil and filter. The first thing I would do is run 2-3 bottles of injector cleaner though several takes of fuel and see if that clears the problem up. If the injector cleaner helps than it means you have alot of carbon buildup on your valves, piston heads, and spark plugs; if this is the case I would keep putting 1 bottle of injector cleaner in at every fillup for several months just to get rid of as much of the carbon as I could.

1984 toyota pickup, 22R engine, stalls out when driving 2-8 miles


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the rubber fuel lines being old and cracked. The hoses would warm up and fuel would squirt out of the cracks. I had to replace three fuel line hoses and it has been running great ever since. Good luck.
