What are causes for no-heat problems in a Ford Taurus - blowing cold or lukewarm air only?
These are common causes of 'no-heat' when the coolant is flowing: Blocked / plugged heater core To check - confirm that both heater hoses going into the firewall are warm. If only one is warm, likely there is a blockage and the core will have to be flushed and/or replaced.

What is the approximate cost of replacing a blown head gasket?
The cost of replacing a part is a very general question that unless specified exactly is hard to answer. First, is who is replacing the part? Is the Dealer, an independent repair shop, a junkyard, the guy next door or you doing the replacement. These will all yield different prices. Not to mention that within all of these will be different labor rates and different part price mark ups. Second, what is the quality of the part? Is it a name...

What would cause a squealing sound if it is not the brakes or belts?
I have THE answer. You have defective bearings in your Distributor shaft. It is a $300 part. I spent a few hundred dollars and with the help of two very persistent mechanics they found the problem. I know what you are going through. It sounds like a belt. The squealing may even cause your van to shut off, especially when idling. If this is the case, be sure that it is the distributor shaft. basil The type of vehicle and more information is...
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs, Transmissions and Drivetrains, Ford Ranger, Late Model 1979-New Ford Mustangs
Can you change a manual transmission to automatic and about how much does it usually cost?
Not knowing the make or the model it is impossible to guess. Generally you would have to change the radiator, run the transmission lines and change out flywheel and possibly driveshaft. With older cars (early hydramatics, for example), you do not have to change the radiator and there ae no transmission lines, but in addition to changing the flywheel and driveshaft, you also have to add the linkage to the carburetor. You might need to change the ECM (computer) and you may be...

How do you replace a heater core in a 1993 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 manual transmission 2WD?
If it's similar to the 1994, it's pretty easy. The heater core sits on the passenger side inside the cab, and there will be two hoses running through the firewall. It should just be a simple matter of disconnecting the heater hoses, and removing whatever mounting bracket is holding it in place (screws or bolts). I replaced mine with a borrowed tool kit in about 10-15 minutes in a Suburban Lodge parking lot in Charlotte, NC back in 2000. I've always wanted...

92 ford ranger brake lines?
Ford usually discontinues offering pre-bent brake lines for vehicles more than five years old. After that, you have to do what is done for almost all other vehicles: buy steel brake tubing and bend, cut, and flare it yourself. If available, try to get the "unkinkable" brake tubing. This tubing has a plastic coating (usually green) and has an odd shape to the hole running it's length which makes it very easy to bend without kinking it. A kinked line is worthless. To...

How do you change the timing belt on a 1990 Ford Ranger manual transmission 2.3 Liter 4-cylinder vehicle?
I don't know the newer fuel injected engines that well, but the timing setup should be the same. Your best bet would be to pick up a Haynes manual for your truck and follow the directions. Read about how to find Top Dead Center on the compression stroke for the #1 piston. You start from there. The timing mark on the cam gear must also be aligned with the pointer on the engine block under the timing cover. If you pull the...
