Using the same 13mm socket, remove the bolt that you found under the a/c compressor. Look down and to the right of the bolt that you just removed, and you will see two more bolts. Both are 13mm. Easiest way that I found was to go under the driver side tire well, and use 3/8 extensions to reach the two bolts. Once removed, the bracket and the power steering pump should be moved to the driver's side of the frame, and the a/c placed on top of the p/s assy.




Remove the bolts (6mm) that hold the timing belt cover in place. Gently work your way around the cover, and push the tabs in to remove the cover.


Use an impact wrench and 7/8 SAE socket to remove the crankshaft pulley. A SOCKET WRENCH WILL NOT WORK. Once removed, gently tap the pulley with a 2x4 (yes the wooden board) to remove. If you have a gear puller, use that. I don't own one.




Remove the old belt. Now for the alignment. Crank - sprocket on bottom. Use the bolt you removed, and a ½ drive wrench, with the 7/8 socket to turn the crank. Once the keyway is at high noon, leave it alone. Next, move the oil pulley sprocket until the diamonds are aligned. This should put the oil pulley at high noon, also. The camshaft should have a diamond and a triangle. The diamond should go to high noon, and the triangle should align with a triangle on the plastic behind the sprocket. YOU SHOULD REALLY CONSIDER CLEANING THE ENTIRE AREA BEFORE ALIGNING THE SPROCKETS. You cannot align the camshaft without locating the two index (triangle and diamond) marks.


You will also notice a tensioner for the timing belt. You will need to loosen the tentioner with a 13mm and 17mm wrenches. Loosen, then use a cheeter bar bar to move the tentioner over. Lock in place by tightening the tentioner bolts. Place the belt on the crankshaft, move to the oil pulley, then to the cam pulley. Release tentioner, then check the alignment. If correct, reverse the above removal plan, and you should be good.




Don't buy the Haynes manual. I fought with the instructions for this project, and the picture for the timing belt project doesn't show the two indexes for the cam sprocket.



Also, while you are doing this, you should replace the antifreeze if you haven't in the past two years.



Best of luck.

2003 ford ranger need timingmarks my beltbroke


I've never done one on a Ranger, but most timing gears have alignment marks that you line up before you install the belt. Don't forget to replace the belt tensioner while you're at it.

Does a 2003 ford ranger 2.3 liter have a chain, gear, or timing belt?


The 2.3 uses a timing belt with an tension idler adjustment. Replacement is straight forward, just make sure to mark upper and lower cog pulleys before removing the old belt so that you can keep the timing in sync.

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;

Will '89 Ranger leaf springs fit a '99 Ford Ranger 4x4?


Measure the distance from bolt to bolt, and to the center. If they match then, they match, if not you will have to check the numbers with fords tolerances to avoid an axle wrap. But it should fit, maybe just a little stiffer of a suspension from the 4x4.
