Question about 1991 Ford F250

2 Answers

My 92 Ford Ranger 2WD 4 cylinder recently overheated. I pulled over and added water. Continued on, then it overheated again. After having it towed home, it will not start. It is turning over, just not firing. Even a jump start would not start it.

Sounds like the head gasket. It will sound different while trying to start it than it did before because it has no compression. You might try starting it while pouring motor oil very slowly down throttle body if it doesn't start head gasket is burnt if it does start and blowing bubbles in radiator needs head gasket. Good Luck..

When you added the water was the engine still hot? When you filled it, was the engine off, or running? Pouring cold water into an overheated engine, especially when the engine is not running, will crack the engine block-fatal. check for oil in coolant or coolant in the oil, check compression-if all are good, start checking for spark (ignition module) or fuel (sound of fuel pump when key is turned on)-good luck.

Ford Ranger overflow tank bubbling and overflowing, running hot, white smoke, after water pump failure.


The smoke could be the water boiling. Although it is possible that you blew the head gasket, if the vehicle overheated badly, It is also possible that you still have some air in the system. Replace the thermostat and seal /gasket and run the vehicle while adding coolant. Do not install cap on until both houses upper and lower are hot to the touch. This is an indication that the thermostat opened and coolant is actually circulating. Good luck.

I would like to know if I could pull a holiday trailor that weighs in at 3600 lbs loaded?


Standard towing capicity is 2360 lbs with the 4 cyl motor and towing capicity is 5760 lbs with the 6 cylinder motor.

When towing that kind of weight you need to be careful you don't overheat the transmission or burn up the brakes.

My 92 ranger XLT hood will not close, 4 cyclinder,


In the front of the hood latch ( to the left and right of the unit) there are two mounting screws that actually hold the hood latch piece together. If those screws are loosened the latch can be moved left and right. Align the latch piece to the hood to make sure the hood catches.As long as the latch itself will work by pushing it down this works and it also helps with tight tension issue on the pull chord from inside of the cab.

1994 ford ranger 4.0 4x4 supercab


My wife just recently had a similar problem. She got stuck in the mud and put our 2004 F150 in 4x4 Low to get out. She didn't. Had to have AAA pull her out. She then left a bit later and the truck was still in 4x4 Low even after switching to 2WD. She even tried going backwards to get it to switch. So she called me frantically and I said I'd call her back. So I called our local Ford Repair shop and he gave me these instructions (loosely based on what the owner's manual says to do)

1. Start Vehicle
2. Switch to 4x4 Low
3. Put in Neutral
4. Switch to 4x4 High
5. Go in Reverse for a bit and then Forward a bit again
(You should now be in 4x4 High)
6. Put in Neutral
7. Switch to 2WD
You should now be good. If that didn't work, then try repeating step 5 after step 7.

Hope that helps, as it worked for us.
