If you have a 2.3L engine the tappet to valve clearances are:

Intake = 0.22 - 0.28 mm (0.008 - 0.011 in)
Exhaust = 0.27 - 0.33 mm (0.010 - 0.013 in)

If you have either the 3.0L or 4.0L, there are no adjustments because they use hydraulic lifters.

Wha is the valve clearance for ford ranger 2.5l wl engine?

Idk, but I know it is a high clearance engine. So, if the timing belt breaks, the valves won't hit your pistons, and no internal damage will occur.

How to adjust tappet clearaNCE OF FORD RANGER 12 VALVE

Unless the is a modified engine, there is no setting on the valve clearance. It has hydraulic valve lifters and they don't require any setting of the valve tappets.If they are making noise when it is running the you have a bad valve lifter. Unless you can get some kind of lubricant to add to the oil that will clean the lifters, you may have to install new ones.

92 ford ranger 4.o w/lack of power

If you believe its the injectors try a can/bottle of injector cleaner and use a can of carby cleaner to lightly spray around the injector seals to confirm no vacuum leak as the age of the vehicle would suggest they may be.Valves is also a good idea to reset as over time they do tend to sink into the valve seats and the valve clearances become too tight,this is a common problem with a lot of engines.
