I'll bet that engine has a lot of miles on it. I also would not be surprised to find out that it sometimes went 15,000 miles between oil changes. That might have caused the rings to score the cylinders, which allows blow-by under heavy load. And, it that engine does have a lot of miles on it, the valve stem seals are probably going bad, which means that oil can leak into the cylinders right after the engine is stopped. This oil burns slowly when the engine is started, producing heavy bluish-white smoke for a short time. It might be a good time to consider putting another engine in the vehicle, or jacking up the steering wheel and putting a new car under it. Very true, but the white smoke could also be a head gasket, or transmission related.
A check engine light means you have a possible problem with the emission system , you should get the Ranger scanned for trouble codes to diagnose and repair the problem . Once the problem has been repaired the check engine light can be reset.
If black smoke is coming out of the exhaust of a 1986 Ford Ranger, it is likely burning oil. It's possible that a seal is leaking in the engine.
There are many causes to this problem, in a 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0L. It is usually caused by a spark plug firing when its not suppose to, or late/delayed timing.
A clicking noise in the engine of a 91 Ranger could indicate a problem with the valves. A valve lifter in the engine may be worn or stuck.
A - 2.3 L - DOHC - four cylinder engine was available starting with the 2001 Ford Ranger
Is it possible an electrical problem can cause my engine coil to burn on my Mazda 323
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
my ranger did the same thing you need to check the wires and the plugs or your o2 sensor behind your cat if ths wont fix the problem you have a serious problem!
There could be several reasons for the check engine light to come on. You can take it to Advance Auto Parts or Autozone and if the check engine light is on they will hook it to their computer and tell you exactly what the problem is for free.
i have the same problem like you, may you tell me what u have done ?
Actually , it has a timing CHAIN , are you having a problem ?
If the engine is running good except for low power, low cylinder compression could be the problem. A computer test may show and possible engine codes as well, giving a starting point for troubleshooting.
Yes, but you must replace the blinker fluid prior to starting the replacement engine.
If you are debating on whether or not you want to buy a Ford Ranger, then it is useful to know the engine size. The Ford Ranger is available, with a V6 engine.
The check engine light is displayed in the on/run position just before starting the engine to make sure the bulb works If the check engine light flashes , that means an engine "miss" has been detected If the check engine light stays on, a possible problem with the emission control system has been detected by the powertrain control module In order to reset the light, the problem has to be corrected first. Have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes
The Ford Ranger engine number can be found on the engine identification plate. The engine identification plate can be found on the engine block.
You eating the engine.
Low battery, low fuel pressure, a code stored in the engine computer that will point to a possible cause. Plugged air filter, internal engine problem,
The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a problem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions. If the check engine light is flashing a misfire has been detected
I believe it is 260-265horsepower for the 4.0 L OHV engine in the Ranger and 207 horsepower for the 4.0 L SOHC engine in the Ranger
Check and or replace your starter solenoid.
a little cut and weld, anythings possible ;)
A check engine light means that a malfunction has been detected with the emission control system - if the check engine light does not go out ( sometimes the problem corrects itself and the light goes out ) have the Ranger scanned for trouble codes in order to diagnose and then repair the malfunction
