Having problems with your Ford Ranger ?
I see online that you are a pro with ford rangers. i have a 1993 ford ranger that has started leaking gas. the gas only leaks when the truck is running, when i turn it off it stops. it is a slow drip but is getting worse. the gauge also quit working about 3 months ago. any ideas on how to repair this ourselves?
No iam not a ford ranger specialist iam a general mechanic often refered to as ,well dont go their but from description you have a leak on either the supply or the return fuel pipe so its on with the overhauls and get under and look for the leak ,now some pipes where they connect to a flexible pipe have a special connection but this is not insurmountable ,fit a metal insert into the plastic pipe and then fit a new rubber piece with 2 clips as most fuel systems use about 35psi ,Now as for the fuel gauge this is a bit more complicated as it could ba fault either with the gauge or the sensor in the tank ,now what you do is to locate the unit in the tank which normally you access under the back seat then as its a combined pump fuel gauge unit ,The big heavier cables will be the pump and the other two thin wires are the gauge sensor well join the two thin one together and if the gauge goes to max you need a new sensor in the tank if it doesnt go over then its a fault in the gauge end ,
