Most are spot welded into place. The only way to do it is to cut them out, using a grinder to remove the spot welds as best as possible then removing the hinge with a dead blow hammer, or use a metal chisel to help dislodge it the rest of the way

Search for "spot weld cutters"-they'll do a much quicker, neater job than a grinder. Essentially like a hole saw for wood or drywall only a lot smaller and hardened for cutting metal. Here's about the cheapest to be found that works well-

I have a 1993 Ford F-150 that has water dripping down the firewall, under the hood, when the engine is running. The water is coming from inside a circular plastic piece located under the hood - just under...

Water that comes from the AC Evaporator is normal and necessary.Part of the A/C process removes moisture from the air it is cooling, via condensation.

How can i replace the hood lift supprt on a 1998 ford explorer?

This shows you how to take the hood off, the hinges, I am not sure how to replace those since my online resources doesn't cover that portion of body work. The diagram seems to show that the hinge goes into the firewall, so if you want you might have to cut into the firewall, but this is more of a salvage yard procedure.

I would look at the hood lift support more closely to see if you can indeed replace it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Exploded view of the hood-to-hinge mounting 85550005.gif
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you have at least one assistant helping during this operation.
  1. Open the hood.
  2. Matchmark the hood-to-hinge position.
  3. Disconnect any electrical wire harness plugs.
  4. Have you're assistant(s) support the weight of the hood.
  5. Remove the hood-to-hinge bolts and lift the hood off of the hinges.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Loosely install the hood and align the matchmarks. Tighten the bolts securely. Before removing the hood, matchmark the hood hinge to the hood 89680p03.jpg
    If equipped, disconnect the hood light wire harness plug . . . 89680p04.jpg
    . . . along with any ground straps 89680p05.jpg
    While an assistant holds the hood, remove the hinge-to-hood attaching bolts 89680p06.jpg

I need to add brake fluid - where is the brake fluid reservoir on a 1988 ford ranger?

It will be under the hood, on the driver's side, mounted on the brake booster, mounted on firewall. The master cylinder is usually silver with a plastic reservoir on top with a black plasic cap, there should be 4 steel lines coming out of it. Remove the cap and fill up to the "FULL" level on the reservoir.
