Question about 2002 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
I own a 2002 Ranger 4 cylinder with only 62,000 miles on it. After replacing the thermostat housing unit and having issues with a radiator leak that would not stop my mechanic noticed a very small hole behind the water jacket which after running his hand in the area he discovered the leak became the size of his finger. A hole rotted through the block behind the thermostat.
Please tell me how a truck with only 62,000 miles on it which is faithfully maintained can have a rotted block.
Personally I think this is a Ford problem and not mine. I am in search of other unhappy ranger owners that had a similar problem. Seems like I can't have the only bad apple in the basket!
Well knowing engine blocks this sounds like an inperfection in the block when i came out of the molding process of the manuafacture these blocks should be able to take a quite a bit
like an air bubble or piece of **** metal in the block from manuacfacture this you should really bring to dealers attention they should uphold the hundred thousand mile warranty on the mecanicalbility of engine if they dont i would go to attorney general and ask for advice seeing that this is a manufactures problem
the other is over tightening of bolts in which cracked the block
