Depending on your vehicle make, you may need to be in D2 or D3 (or reverse) prior to your automatic 4 wheel or all wheel drive kicking in.

Are you sure you have the correct voltage battery or have you got the terminals the right way as it sounds like you have cross wired it or put too much power through it.

If you look down in the top of the transmission where the shifter goes. You will see three parts. These parts are forks. There is a center slot in all three. The slots have to be lined up and in the center. This is neutral. Then the shifter can be installed.

You should be able to unscrew the hinge at the bottom of the compartment door then get flashlight and long screwdriver and take the two screws out of the top latch in the inside. This will remove the door. Then you will have to see what is broken on the lock or release part of it.

Just before a car runs out of gas it will speed up the idle (rev up) backfire and then die. You are probably experiencing a lack of fuel. Put a pressure gauge on the fuel rail that goes to the fuel injectors. It should probably read between 5 and 15 lbs. If the pressure is bad, it could be a fuel pump or clogged fuel filter. Obviously it is cheaper to start by changing the filter. The line could also be clogged. If it has good pressure all the way up to the fuel rail, it could be clogged fuel injectors.

hey, im not a professional but ive dealt with crappy a4ld's for about two years. just from what youve said it sounds to me like youre pump may have gone. it happened on my first one. if you remove the bellhousing it is directly behind it. there are 6 or so bolts. a new one can be purchased at cobra transmissions, however if the pump seems intact it could be a million other things. if i were you and you have some know how, buy a stick shift ranger and swap it out. its really not hard. if you have any questions email me at mcdonaldmowing@aol.com good luck

pull it straight up and out of master cylinder

1989 Ford Ranger | Answered on Feb 22, 2015 | 29 views

o.k. but the sender has a bimetal element inside it even if the connection looks good the sender inside can be damaged and not making contact thus no reading also I think you might have the wrong sender installed so here's the photo's to help you
2.3L with the gauge
2.3L with the light
2.9 with the gauge
2.9L and the 2.3L are the same for each engine with the light the gauge senders are different this could be the problem wrong sender installed and its not reading pressure because it can't? good luck stephen
