Question about 1995 Ford Ranger Supercab

1 Answer

I have an 2002 ranger 3.0 my grandfather bought the truck new and i bought it from him with 28,000 miles on it and ever since i owned it it pings with 87 octane. i took it to the dealer and had them do a diagnostic test on it and was told there was absolutley nothing wrong they said installed updated software in the computer but soon as i pulled away it was still pinging ive been using 93 octane since and it cured the problem but now im starting to notice it pinging again even with the higher octane i now have 55,000 on it and have changed the coil pack spark plugs and camshaft position sensor i would just like to solve the problem and be able to use reg gas any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Check to see if you have good flow threw the e.g.r valve, make sure the passage ways under the valve are not plugged with carbon, its pretty common.

It is possible but check for fluid levels first. If you are loosing resistance on the pedal, it is possible that the clutch master or the slave may have gone bad.

You can probably expect over 200,000 if you keep up on maintnence with regular oil changes and everything but anything with only 28,000 miles is really good!!!

2003 rear differential


I am a Ford tech and the diff doesn't need to be serviced (new lube) unless it is torn down or it has a leak, however it is my opinion that under heavy usage such as towing it should be serviced at around 60,000.
