On your 1989 Ford Ranger :

The vacuum modulator valve is on the passenger side of the A4LD automatic

transmission ( it might be behind a heat shield )

No , the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine in a 2003 Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN

The speed sensor on a 99 Ranger 2.5 liter 2WD with an automatic transmission is in the rear differential. It is included with the ABS sensor in one unit.

A 1994 Dodge Ram does not have a modulator.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I read once that the modulator valve for the automatic transmission has a vacuum line connected from the valve to the engine and that transmission fluid can be sucked into the engine if something goes wrong with the valve

vacuum modulators are used on automatic transmissions to control line pressure relating to the way a shift feels when a transmission changes gears. Later models went to a fully electronic valvebody with line pressure controlled by the vehicles computer.If your question concerns a1996 Ford Ranger with an automatic transmission and a 4.0 liter V6 engine then the answer is--- you can't because this vehicle doesn't use a modulator for the transmission. If your asking about the modulator because the trans is shifting hard then you probably need to have the computer scanned to check for diagnostic trouble codes which would cause a condition called ''failsafe''. Line pressure is raised to protect the trans and to alert you to the fact that something is wrong. 4R44E-4R55E

For a 1992 Ford Ranger , 2.3 liter four cylinder : The 5 speed manual transmission takes ( 2.8 U.S. quarts of MERCON automatic transmission fluid )

Perhaps when the engine and the transmition were "conected" something did not align properly. Did it work when you first did it or it never worked.

Yes , the 3.0 liter V6 in a Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN

There is no 2.8 Liter in a 1989 Ford Ranger. The Ranger V6is a 2.9 Liter and the distributor rotates clockwise.

That would depend on your engine size ( 2.3 liter 4 cylinder , 3.0 or 4.0 liter V6 ) automatic or manual transmission , 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive etc.

Ford offered two transmissions that year. A 5-speed manual transmission was standard with the 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine as well as with the 2.9-liter, V-6 engine. A 4-speed automatic was optional. A third engine, a 4.0-liter, V-6 offered the 4-speed automatic transmission only.

Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid is used in the 5 speed manual transmission in a 1998 Ford Ranger with the 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine ( and the 3.0 / 4.0 liter V6 engines ) according to the Owner Guide

The 2.3 liter and 3.0 liter take ( 5W-20 ) The 4.0 liter takes ( 5W-30 ) According to the 2002 Ford Ranger Owner Guide

For a 2.3 liter ---- For a 4.0 liter ----

2.5 liter 4 cylinder , or the 3.0 liter or 4.0 liter V6

The 1990 Ford Ranger 3.0 liter V6 engine has a distributor , the 2.3 liter - 4 cylinder and the 4.0 liter V6 have EDIS ( Electronic Distributorless Ignition System )

You could have the 2.9 liter , the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " or the 4.0 liter V6 engine . They are all over head valve / pushrod designs in a 1992 Ford Ranger

I was looking on at the 2004 Ford Ranger with the 3.0 liter V6 engine and it doesn't list an EGR valve for the 3.0 liter like it does for the 4.0 or 2.3 liter

The 2.0 liter 4 cylinder , the 2.3 liter 4 cylinder , or the 2.9 liter V6

where is the valve located on the 2002 ranger 4.0 liter 6 cyl?
