hello, I'm looking at a 2004 Explorer, not too familiar with these, but I think it is a good looking vehicle, this particular one is fairly clean. 115,000 mi, guy is asking $6k, I'm thinking $5k, has rebuilt tranny. any free advice? smilieFordlogo

he showed me the air valve on top of the filter, where he bled some air off.
pretty easy to get the filter on my rig.
well, I'm sure you guys are eagerly awaiting an update, lol
gonna keep the Ranger for now, between insurance and registration it was not gonna save me any money getting a new ride, and then putting miles on it. Just put some snow tires on the back of the Ranger, got the air bag recall took care...
I know, it burns!
gonna save approximately a whopping $347 dollars a year if I drive 10,000 miles, (20mpg vs 26), which I will more than end up paying in add. insurance,
spending way too much time obsessing here, thank you being my sounding board.
Ranger got a lil reprieve today, had to file...
been vacillating as I am wont to do, lol
Found a 2016 crosstrek for $21.5k
tentative online offer of $5k for my Ranger,
sad to see her go, but happy to know someone will get a clean good running truck
oh, gas up in my neck of the woods is closer to $3.00, jus sayin
just had this discussion w/my brother, I guess different people have differing ideas of what almost is...to me it's worth knocking 3k off the price for 20k miles, given it wasn't driven into a river during that time...but thinking, they ain't makin Rangers here anymore, so mebbe hang on to...
Mornin' Mr. Williams, welcome to FTF,
sounds like a great truck, I had a '74 w/the 460,
be aware, they are thirsty girls. What are your plans for the truck?
That's kinda my segue into what is it worth to you?
Mine I put almost $5k into in the year I had it, yeah. paid $1100 for mine from a...
117k on the Ranger, 3.0 w/5spd, 2wd, a solid 20 mpg. Looked at a 2012 Fiesta w/manual, but have not heard great things about them mostly the auto.
Looked at a new 2015 Jetta w/maual that I liked, decent price, about 16k.
Leaning towards a Subaru wagon (Impreza, Forester), for two reasons, one...
evenin' gents, bit of a dilemma, soliciting advice:
my commute is going from 6 miles to 36 miles in a couple months,
gonna cost roughly 240 bucks a month, been thinking of trading my
beloved Ranger in on a Subaru, not really sure it would actually save me any money in the long run, running the...
thanks guys about what I was thinking, hope it's not a fuel problem, figured if it started with the block heater that lead me to believe it was the glow plugs, and I've been meaning to check them any way, hope to get on that tomorrow, calling for snow on Sunday!
does sound like the air intrusion...
hi everybody! Been awhile... Truck has been running good, except for last week when I had to get the OEM fuel pump replaced.Had an issue the last two nights when I'm leaving work and the truck has been sitting for 8+ hrs in freezing weather, I have to cycle the glow plugs several times (2-3...
