    Yey! Enawdski here, from F150form, I don't have a ranger, but an everest, it is the wagon model of the ranger, released here in our part of the world.
    Our ranger/everest has only CRDI diesel engines, 4x2, 2.5 duratorq crdi engine and a 4x4, 3.0 duratorq crdi engine.

    Hello all;

    My name is Dan, and I live in Orange, Texas, near the Louisiana border and the Gulf of Mexico. At the present, I teach auto mechanics at the local Jr college. In my previous life, I drove a lot of Ford Rangers...from a 72 Courier, to an 84, 87, and 97.

    My interest in the Ranger comes in the form of building one into a little street machine. I would like to do a frame off build up, and maybe stick a 302 in an early model. We'll have to see on that one. I am just now putting a V8 into an old Safari van. Hopefully it will be on the road soon.

    At any rate, I digress. Thanks for starting this forum. I am sure it will grow and become THE spot to come to for Ranger info.

    Drive safe,

    Dan Harriman

    HI! Well I guess it would be pretty obvious that my name is Tonya lol. I was registered on F150 Forum as CountryGirl until the F150 got repod last January.

    So I got back into another Ranger. This is my 2nd one & it is a 2002 4x4. So far it is mostly stock, except for an intake & some black headlights that are still sittin in the box here in the floor waiting to be installed this weekend :)

    Hi everyone, been a member of the 150 forum for about a year, have learned alot about the newer vehicles and hope I have passed on info to others taken from my experience of twisting wrenches for 40 years. I'll be checking in now and then just to see if I can help out. Thanks, Bill

    Sgtgoose1 from F150 Forums,

    I owned a 1985 & 1998 Ranger and they were Great trucks

    I bought my 1985 March 85 with 7 miles on it had for 6 years until I had to leave for another assignment in 1991 . It had 52,000 miles on it

    I bought my 1998 in Feb of 98 with 16 miles on it and traded it off on my 04 F150 in 2006 when it had over 160,000 miles and I still wish I would of kept it with the F150.

    Could be lots of things causing this. :eek:

    The ignition timing could be too early or late, not allowing the engine to build up any torque under load.

    The valve timing could have slipped giving the engine a loss of power.

    Restricted exhaust, too large of a tire size, etc. These and lots more could be the cause.

    Hope you get it figured out. Let us know what you find out what is causing this.

    Happy motoring,
