    on that engine, it is probably a crack in the block. Was the engine overheated?

This means you have a leak in the head gasket. Get it fixed because there is small amounts also going into the oil and will be hard on the bearings. Good Luck, JERROD

1999 ford ranger 3.0 heater wont get hot. blend door is working. truck blows whatever the air temp is out side with heater on hot.


That means either you have a vapour lock, your water pump has failed, or your thermostat isn't opening. It is not easy for a non-mechanic to put coolant into a vehicle... more often than not you get a vapour lock. Sometimes this happens if you don't check your overflow bottle daily, (or weekly). If you have no habit of checking your tires, your oil, your brake fluid, your signals, transmission fluid etc then it is easy for you to neglect your overflow bottle. If the coolant gets all the way to the bottom then your radiator will start emptying daily into your overflow bottle and causing you problems.

Where is the rev sensor on a 2001 ford ranger


You would most likely find it on the tail shaft housing on your transmition. That is towards the rear of the transmition near where the drive shaft enters the transmition. The sensor will have a 3 wire conector on it. It does not matter if it is a manual or automatic.

I have a huge puddle of anitfreeze under the car but the car is not overheating..no while smoke coming out..any suggestions?


Could be leaking from the overflow bottle.

Check the level in the radiator, if its low and no lights or anything are on I wonder if the gauges or low coolant light are even working. Not much else I can suggest other than to get under the car and see where its dripping from.

Temp line comes on and stays on


If it's flashing, it can mean it's overheating. STOP DRIVING. First Check the electrical connector, if it's plugged in, it should be ok. Next, pull the return line off the overflow and start the engine (with the engine cold) and the return line should almost immediately start flowing water, if not, your water pump is broken and not pumping and overheating your engine.

There is no radiator cap, the "overflow" is the radiator cap.

2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain


Hello;
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
Thanks;
Rich RPM Northwest
