You will have to take the auto locking hub cap off and then remove the axle nut, and the wheel bearing to get the wheel assembly off, then you will take the bolts out of the wheel assembly that are used to hold it to the rotor.

I'm getting an orange spark on my 1983 ford ranger, 2.3 4 cylinder. Replaced the coil, the distributor cap looks brand new. This truck is excessively flooding and when it does crank, it won't...


yes it could,, if you don't have the correct spark,, the firing would be weaker also, check the wires themselves to the plugs, and also the rotor , just because the cap looks brand new doesn't mean that its not arching inside the cap,, allowing the contact to get a reduced spark, if you replaced the coil, then its after that in the electrical circuit,, which brings you back to the cap, rotor, and wires. normally 3 wires won't go bad all at once unless there is a heat problem where the wires are routed, so I would just replace the cap and rotor, and see how it runs after that .

You need to turn the engine over to find Top dead center,
Then remove the cap and see if the rotor is pointing to #1,Then verify the wires have started in that position and are rotating in the right direction.

1998?? if their is excessive drag then remove the calipers and pull the pistons out.Then pull out the rubber seals and clean the groove the seal sits in ,refit new seals and then push pistons back in with a smear of vasaline.Also at teh same time renew the two flexible hose because no doubt they are cracking and they could be collapsed inside the tube not allowing the fluid pressure to drop on the calipers which hold the brakes on

the front brake rotors are warped out of true, either have them machined true or replace them.

I need to replace a Front wheel bearing on my 98 ford ranger.


Remove the wheel and take off your brake caliper. Once you have the wheel off, you will see a dust cap in the center of the wheel. Remove the dust cap by using a pair of channel locks, don't use something to pry it loose as this will cause it to leak grease later. Once you have the dust cap off you will see inside a castle nut held in place with a cotter pin. Remove the pin and unscrew the nut. This will allow the rotor and bearing to come out. Replace the bearing with the new one using a high temp grease to grease them.... IMPORTANT: when you grease the new bearings make sure to grease them thoroughly. Put a glob of grease in the palm of your hand and slowly dab the sides of the new bearings in the grease (this will allow the bearings to be greased on the inside).... Put back together as you found it. NOTE: When tightening the castle nut, tighten it down tight and then release it a quarter turn back before before inserting the pin to hold it back in place. Good luck! Let me know how it goes.  PS If when you have the rotor off, you have trouble getting the inside bearing off try this very simple and useful trick: Put the rotor back on the spindle and thread the castle nut on a couple of times. Next **** the rotor across the nut. This will cause the bearing to hang up on the castle nut and simply pop out.
