    Bad Fuel Injector 2019 Ranger

    Your post is to check NON- Direct injected fuel systems on old body (2012 and back) Rangers. DI fuel systems are different and have more factors that must be taken into account.

    Bad Fuel Injector 2019 Ranger

    That is the fuel tube that runs between the HPFP and the HP rail. It is "one time use" per Ford. They changed policy recently, and if "one time use" parts are not replaced they will deny the claim. We are having a LOT of issues stemming from this policy.
  3. Timing belts in the 1.0 Ecoboost, 1.5 Ecoboost , 1.6 N/A, 1.6 Ecoboost, and the 3.0 Diesel uses 2, one for the main belt and one for the HPFP. Fordtech is right. Leave a 2 valve alone unless it rattles on startup or you find guide parts in the oil.

    3Yr Old Optima Vs. New Battery

    New F-150s already come with AGM batteries. Your optima is probably close to the end of its useful service life anyway.

    Bad Fuel Injector 2019 Ranger

    Yes! "no code" is an oversimplification by a service writer because not everyone will understand what really goes on with diagnosis. And by that I mean both customers and service writers/managers. Many transmission issues don't set codes. Lots of Ecoboost issues won't set codes as well. Most "wrench" lights won't store codes. Codes are just a clue for diagnosis. They are NOT the only path to it, nor should they be.

    TSB 19-2145 does not include any parts. It is only a reprogram. If you have a junk injector, it will not help to change software.

    Did they fix the door latches?
  8. You can disconnect the battery monitor sensor to disable start/stop. Or, hold your foot *lightly* on the brake pedal, and it won't activate. However, I fail to see why people are obsessed with disabling it. The transition is seamless and instant, the cabin is quieter at stops and it saves fuel. I haven't seen a higher starter failure rate either.

    Old Ranger

    If it moves *at all* there is a market for them. I have a 99 with a LOT more miles than you and have ZERO plans of getting rid of it.
  10. If you think the 6.0 was bad, you have never experienced the 6.4. 7.3 was reliable IF you could keep the valve cover gaskets and under valve cover harnesses from burning up or coming loose, OR keep the EBP's from sticking shut, OR the up pipes didn't start leaking and losing drive pressure on the turbo, OR keep the water pumps from leaking and/or dropping the fan in the radiator, OR keep the IDM dry, OR worst of all keep oil in it from the HPOP, external HP oil lines, cross drill ports, galley plugs, turbo pedestal and rotted oil pans. But yeah, the base engine was reliable because it made so little power it couldn't break... that is, unless you had sintered rods. In light duty applications the OBS dual mass flywheel always broke and the 6 speed manual was an absolute POS. The topper? E4OD/4R100. Proper maintenance procedures and timing, blue spring regulator, fuel pressure guage and volt meter solve 80% of the stock 6.0 "problems" as long as the operator will use them and the T/S 5 was WORLDS better than the 4 speed ever dreamed.

    AC compressor lockup

    There really aren't any issues with that compressor, per se. If you have a good relationship with your dealer you might get some assistance from Ford, if you (and I can't stress this enough) ASK kindly.
  13. Only because of morons who didn't take care of them properly or idiots trying to repair them. They needed something that the 7.3 never did... maintenance. 99% of the injector issues were fuel pressure and oil quality. 90% of the FICM issues were guys who didn't keep the charging system up to snuff. Stuck Turbo? Can't let them sit. They were designed to work every day, not be grocery getters. EGR cooler failures were usually lack of maintenance of the cooling system, leading to oil cooler failure plugging which starved the EGR cooler. Headgaskets were the only real issue that could be blamed on design. Most of the heavy truck applications of the VT365 never had 90% of the issues Ford did with the engine.

    AC Fan speed switch

    Most likely, the switch has melted and damaged its pigtail. The resistor is NOT a part of the circuit on high. Replace the pigtail and switch and check the motor for excessive current draw when running.

    Strange engine whining noise

    Sounds somewhat like the noise the trans makes when the bearings fail on the transfer shaft, though I can't tell without being there in person. There is a TSB for it, and hybrid specific components are covered by a 8 year 100,000 mile warranty.
