2000 Ranger

Postby KenHigginbotham » Tue Jan 25, 2005 6:46 pm

I'm trying to find some info an the fuel line filter fittings for a 2000 Ranger. The fittings on my truck seem to be non standard and I hate to break something. The Haynes I have does not show my particular type fitting. Anyone ever messed with one?

Thanks, Ken

Ken, there is a site for Ford Rangesr that is very similiar to this one. They have both technical and general foreums. http://www.therangerstation.com Click on forums or tech library near the top of the page.

Ken, If they look like they slip on with some kind of clip, I think you need a special tool.

I had forgotten about that until Carm posted, but I have seen posts on the Rangerstation about needing a special tool. I believe it's availabel at most auto parts store. If i remember correctly it was stated they sell a cheap occasional use one, and a good mechanics version.

Ken, if the Ranger is anything like the F150's fuel filter you do need a special tool. A couple bucks from the local NAPA or what-have-you. The tool halves will encircle the line and slide into the junction on the filter. Push further in to cause the release. Also, put a container under the filter when you disconnect. There's about a pint of fuel that's gonna come out with the end of the fuel line.

Thanks for the suggestions but I don't think I have those types of fittings...

I'll do a picture when I get home...

Thanks again,
Ken

Got 'er done. Finally had to talk with a mech at the ford deal. He confirmed what suspected. Pull out the plastic clips and replace them with new ones...

Thanks for the help!
Ken

Here's a picture of the clip and the filter with the clip installed:

Here's another:

I can't find the door switch that turns the dome light, etc off. Some time the dome light, etc will stay on after all the doors are closed. I assume it must be some kind of hidden magnetic switch?

Thanks for anyones help...
Ken

Common problem. It's part of the latch inside the door. Turns the light off when the latch closes. a liberal application of spray oil sometimes helps. If it's a 4 door, make sure the rear door is closed good.

It gets to be more of a problem in cold weather, usually on the drivers door.

Man, you hit the nail on the head...

BTW, Here one more; The wipers will just come for no reason. No pattern here. I assume it's the wiper/light switch lever thing on the steering column. What do you think? Think an average Joe could replace one of these?

Never came across that problem, but that is the most likely cause, though it could also be the switch on the motor that keeps them from stopping in mid stroke. I have to go to town tomorrow, I'll ask the guys at the local /Ford garage. Over the last 16 years or so I've bought 6 new or used vehicles from them, they tend to be nice to me.
