Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

1 Answer

Ford Ranger 2001 takes time to have whole torque.

When started from cold the engine will take about 5 to 10 miles to get full torque. It is hard to get it to reach 50 m/h. The rpms can go to 5000 but the torque is poor. During this time the a/c will not work. After that the full torque will pick up and the A/C start blowing cold air. My mechanic cant find the real problem and is talking about replacing the computer. Can somebody help?

    I had done a complete tune up checked transmission fluid and filter and the final action that solved the problem was replacing the computer. I was able to get a used one and have it programed. Everything was fine after that.

    Thanks

Check fluid level, which I would assume has already been done.. If it is full(check with it in park and engine running) , then I would suspect that there is a problem with the torque converter. Hard to say much else without having a chance to test drive and see it do what you are saying.

Steps to change a valve cover gaket on a 1992 ford ranger


its not very hard at all. once you get the heads off just make sure you follow the proper sequence to tighten the bolts. always remember to tighten from the center bolts out to the end bolts so the heads seat flat and even. and make sure you have the proper torque specs for those head bolts. 1) hand tighten. 2) torque to half of the OEM spec. 3) full torque spec. all of this takes a while to do so be patient.

2003 Ford Ranger hard to start when cold. must hold throttle open full and crank for a long time. starts normal after warmed up.


you may just have a weak battery, or a battery that is not designed for the cold. I would recommend having your battery test at your local autoparts store.

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;
