Your water pump might be going out. That's the most likely scenario.

Check your operator's manual. Make sure any and all fuses that have anything to do with the affected items are not blown and are working properly. If you can; check for loose fuse connections or wires. Hope this helps. God bless!

Where do I find the fuel filter on a 1998 Ford Ranger XLT 2.9 liter?


If it's new enough it might be inside the fuel tank, if not then it is probably in between the fuel tank and the engine on the inside of the frame rail underneath the truck on the driver's side. It will be a small round inline filter. The special fittings on the ford are a pain so you may have to buy the tools for that from O'reilly's.
