Question about 1991 Ford Ranger Supercab

1 Answer

Too much gas

I'm getting raw gas out of the tail pipe, its running down and dripping off the bell housing. Theres gas in the oil and it sounds like its running on three cylinders. When I crank it over it sounds like its out of time and locks up like the cylinder is just full of gas and its hydrolocking. I think it might be the fuel regulator or a temp sending unit.

Had this problem on a 4.6 tbird. Hope the cause of your problem was not the same as mine. Computer had gone bad and had caused an injector to stay open. I pulled the plugs, found the wet on, unplugged the injector. Only ran on 7 but no more gas out the exhaust. Took it to a shop and they were the ones to find the cause.

Also, the raw gas in the converter will cause it to go bad. Be careful how much you run the engine with gas in the oil. Dont want to ruin the engine.

There is a open ended pipe that runs above engine oil intake, the other end has a hose connected to it? mines leaking fluid thinking gas

Catch what is dripping and see if it smalls of gas, oil or water. Whatever it is I doubt it should not be open ended and should have a hose attached to it that goes somewhere.

Sounds a bit like an Oil Breather Pipe at that diameter.

Take a look at these.

Acura 3. 5 rl 2002 has small / slow oil leak. Is this a problem with 200000 mi

It could be a problem. Check the underside of the engine. Is there an oil drip? Check especially the area where the engine is bolted to the gearbox (bell housing). If there is a drip, you have leaking main bearing oil seal.
Next check is the vacuum pipe from the intake manifold to the carburettor / air intake and from the manifold to the brake booster. Is there any sign of oil wetness here?
After 200 000 your engine is likely getting slightly worn. Oil in these places around the engine indicates compression blow-by. Another check is, when driving, select a nice downhill where you can take your foot off the accelerator and can run against compression for a while. Look in the mirror when you put your foot down on the accelerator and check for a telltale puff of smoke. This indicates the probability of worn valve stems and seals, which means you're burning oil which shows up as oil loss.
By and large, if you have slight oil loss after almost a quarter of a million miles, don't worry, as long as your car doesn't leak or smoke to the extent where you mess up the environment.

How do I remove automatic transmission from 1993 Chev 2500 pickup?

The Drive Shaft
  • Using a 1/2-to-2-ton floor jack, lift the front of the truck and place jack stands under the frame. Once the truck is lifted enough for you to safely move around under it, begin removing the four bolts connecting the U-joint between the drive shaft and the rear axle. When you pull the drive shaft out of the tail shaft, transmission fluid will pour out of the tail shaft, so place a drip pan or oil-changing pan under the tail shaft of the transmission.
Lines And Linkage
  • If the truck is an automatic, you will need to remove two transmission lines from the passenger side of the transmission by the bell housing close to the transmission dip stick. If it's a manual transmission you won't have those lines, but you will have shifting linkage on the driver's side of the transmission. Depending on the year of the truck, the linkage is held on by either a cotter pin or locking-sleeve washer. You will also need to remove the speedometer cable. If it's an older truck, it will be a hard-cased cable similar to the emergency brake cable that threads onto the driver side of the transmission just before the bell housing. If the truck is a newer model, it will be an electrical set of wires attached to a plug on the tail shaft.

Remove From Engine
  • Remove the transmission mount bolt that holds the tail end of the transmission to the cross member on the frame. You will need to either use wood blocks or a jack to support the weight of the transmission. Take out the nine bolts on the bell housing that attach the transmission to the engine--there is one on the top center of the bell housing, two along each side of the bell housing and two on each side at the bottom next to the guide pins.
Remove From Vehicle
  • Once removed, maneuver the transmission to the rear of the truck about 6 inches until it clears either the clutch kit of a manual or the torque converter of an automatic. When the transmission is free, lower the bell housing end of the transmission down until the tail shaft is clear of the cross member.
