Question about 2008 Ford Ranger 2WD

1 Answer

I have an exhaust leak in my 98 ford ranger 3.0 auto long bed that I can not seems to solve. I have replaced the exhaust manifold gaskets, egr tube, and the muffler which all were leaking. I have taken the vehicle to two different muffler shops and they were unable to find any leaks in the under side pipes, muffler, converters. Is there anything above the exhaust manifolds that might cause this problem? As stated, I did replace the egr tube coming off the drivers side manifold and also replaced the two hoses running from the egr tube to the egr sensor. Any ideas? Thanks.....joejoeprintprint@yahoo.com

Have a smoke machine used on the exhaust system

If your not familiar with one,they were designed for finding EVAP Leaks,and can be used for lots of things.

A muffer shop with no smoke. That is Fired Flintstone Repair

Just replaced EGR hose & valve copver gaskets on 2002 Ford Escape 4WD. Did test drive, runs really rough & almost stops & cuts off. Any ideas?


OK, if you replaced the EGR hose, did you go all the way to change the EGR Valve? A stuck open EGR Valve can cause a rough idle and almost make it cut off.
Also, a vacuum leak on the EGR valve can cause a rough idle.

The aluminum threads on the EGR valve must be inspected, and a new EGR valve installed if the threads are damaged.
To Remove:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove and discard the exhaust manifold-to-EGR tube. Use the following as a guide:
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle
  4. Remove the splash shield
  5. Disconnect the EGR tube fitting
  6. Lower the vehicle
  7. Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe
  8. Disconnect the EGR tube from the EGR valve.
  9. Detach the vacuum line and remove the two retainer bolts.
NOTE: The EGR valve sealing surfaces are soft metals and easily damaged.
To Install:
  1. Installation is a reverse of the removal process. Carefully clean all sealing surfaces and install a new EGR valve gasket.
  2. Install a new EGR valve tube.

Removal:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body and air cleaner housing.
  3. Label and detach all vacuum hoses from the EGR valve.
  4. Label and detach any electrical wiring harness connectors from the EGR valve.
  5. Disconnect the EGR valve-to-exhaust manifold tube from the EGR valve.
  6. Remove the EGR valve mounting fasteners, then separate the valve from the upper intake manifold.
  7. Remove and discard the old EGR valve gasket, and clean the gasket mating surfaces on the valve and the intake manifold.
To install:
  1. Install the EGR valve, along with a new gasket, on the upper intake manifold, then install and tighten the mounting bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) on 3.8L engines, or to 106-159 inch lbs. (12-18 Nm) on 5.0L engines.
  2. Connect the EGR valve-to-exhaust manifold tube to the valve, then tighten the tube nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  3. Connect all wiring or hoses to the EGR valve.
  4. Install the air inlet tube.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps (remember comment and rated this).
