a temperature sensor could be faulty...i have a 1994 legacy and i had the same problem...i replaced the temperature gage sensor and i have no more problems.

Actually, the heat regulator for the engine is the thermostat. It closes off the coolant when the engine is cold and circulates more coolant when the engine is hot.

On a 2000 Ford Ranger : With the engine cold the radiator should be filled to the seat for the radiator cap and the engine coolant reservoir should be filled to the cold mark

User Avatar

Remove the radiator cap and fill with coolant until full, (Engine Cold). Start the engine and let it run to help remove any trapped air. Refill as necessary. Fill the coolant recovery tank to the full mark after the engine cool down.

Low refrigerant causing compressor not to start?

User Avatar

yes sometimes cause if it fails open the temp sensor will kick the light on tellin its too cold or opposite if the thermostat fails closed

User Avatar

Yes , on my 1995 Ford Explorer XLT there is a cold fill mark . When the engine is cold the coolant level should be up to the mark

User Avatar

What exactly is it. I have never heard of this?

User Avatar

you have a diesel warming light on the dashboard display near the speedo,in the cold turn ignition on,let the warming light go out then count to ten,i have to do this twice to get mine to start on cold mornings,when engine is hot then just wait for the diesel warming light on the dash board to go out and that will do it,takes roughly 3 seconds to go out.

On your 1997 Ford Ranger : There is a cold fill mark on the engine coolant reservoir With your engine cold you should have a 50 / 50 mix of preferably distilled water and GREEN color antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A ) in your engine cooling system up to the cold fill mark of the reservoir ( that's what it had in it when it came from the factory )

I have a 1995 Ford EXPLORER that also has the 4.0 litre , EFI , V6 engine and I have always used a Ford Motorcraft battery that is ( 650 cold cranking amps ) * it seems to be quite adequate

User Avatar

cold start switch on the side of or on top of the throttle body.

User Avatar

The reservoir has two level lines - one for "cold engine" and the other for "hot engine". If the engine is hot, and the coolant level is low, fill the reservoir to the "hot engine" level. When the engine is cold and the level is low, I usually" top off" the radiator and fill the reservoir to the "cold engine" level.

Do you mean right after you start it ? When the engines cold ?

User Avatar

There is an engine coolant tank , made of plastic , in the engine compartment on the passenger side that has a mark on it for the cold level of your engine coolant , maintain the coolant level up to that mark when the engine is cold

User Avatar

If you mean that the engine does not turn in the extreme cold, 2 things come to mind. The battery needs to be replaced with the proper cold cranking amps, and 2nd, you should have 5w30 oil in the engine.

User Avatar

Check the fuel pump, if its cold out the fuel will have a harder time reaching the engine. If you have overidling problems, clean the throttle body (put on a new gasket), change the tps sensor and purge solenoid valve. You can do this quite easily yourself, check www.rockauto.com for the parts.

throttle body or idle air control value

User Avatar

it might be your battery it so cold that it doesn't have the power to turn your engine over. i pull mine in the garage so it doesn't get as cold

The Hot Version has the K&N intake system with a 4" intake tube and open filter. The cold version has just a standard intake system with just an airfilter box.
