Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

I have a ford ranger ...the vehicle sat for about 3 to 3 1/2 months and now I'm trying to get it back on the road...I had to swap out the battery yesterday and as I started it up the gas pedal is sticking to the ground which is having the engine rev rapidly .....the truck was working perfect 3 months ago so I'm a little confused what it could be. Looking for assistance on what the problem could be and what I need to look for/at. Not the most savy on engines.

How can I check my alternator on my 1999 Ford Ranger. The Ranger died on the side of the road today, and all that showed was to check the battery prior for about 10 minutes.


well...whenever the battery light comes on in a vehicle its almost always a charging problem,i would suggest replacing the alternator and charging the battery before starting it,alternators were meant to keep a battery charged NOT charge a battery, hope this helps

2003 Ford Ranger Pickup traveling down the road


Is there somthing hitting the gas pedal, like the floor mat? Or maybe something under the dash came loose and is getting caught under the brake pedal and pushing on the gas. Put the shifter in neutral if you get into a situation where going to hit something or someone. The engine has a rev limiter, to prevent it from over reving.

We have a 2005 Ford Ranger Supercab. While driving the bakkie starts to shake, as if it gets a speed wobble. We have spoken to many other owners of Ford Supercabs and double cabs and it seems as if there...


The speed wobble problem is serious on my vehicle.It is so bad at times if you hit a certain angle or speed ration on certain roads that it feels as if the vehicle wants to throw you out of the cockpit.I have spent R15 000 up to date on it also through Ford's good advice and have now given it back to Ford to resolve, The same day 3 other vehicles got taken in.I say everyone with a Ford Ranger cab should take it in and park their vehicles in the entrance of the workshop and walk away with the keys . They will soon get the message that it is their problem and not the drivers problem.

Ford Escape Hybrid goes dead if not driven for 3 days straight


I have the same problem with my 2007 Escape Hybrid... First experienced it about 1 year ago. The vehicle produces periodic sounds like an electric motor running for several seconds. I believe this is from the motor driven safety relay that disconnects and reconnects the high voltage hybrid battery when the vehicle is not in use. I also can hear a high frequency scream that sounds like a switching inverter power supply. If the vehicle is unused for a day or two the 12V battery is discharged and a jump is needed to start the engine. Ford service could not diagnose the problem. The +12V battery tested OK, but since it was almost 3 years old it was replaced anyway. This helped for a while, but the problem returned after I recently left the vehicle unused for several days. I know the battery is good, it tests OK and is less than one year old! Somewhat reluctant to go back to the same Ford service agency because of their previous failure to fix it. Please advise if you have found a solution or have additional information. This is the only problem I have ever had with the hybrid Escape, but it is very annoying. I am forced to carry a jumper battery to make sure I don't get stranded.

My truck 99 ford ranger died while driving down the road


fuel filter usually dont cause it to die and not start back, thay usually cause rough running. see if your fuel pump is running by getting in and roll up all windows so as quite as possible then cycle the key from off to run and lisen for the pump to run for 2 to 3 seconds should be a faint buzz sound if no sound is heard then replace the fuel pump relay, if no help probably going to need fuel pump

Transmission


Transmission is gone. Get a new vehicle, or get a rebuilt tranny and swap it out.
