  9. 1994 4.0l Heater issue

    Heat is not even luke warm after engine warms up On the '94 there is no by-pass or heat control valve on heater hoses Hoses run from upper intake and water pump directly to heater core hook ups on firewall, so core always has coolant flowing when engine is running Both hoses get hot, not just...

  11. Camless engines

    Yes 2-strokes are camless, and valveless for that matter, lol, but this is for 4 stroke engines. Looks like a very good idea to me. One of the problems with cams is that they have to be made for fixed RPM performance. Cam phasing(moving Cam out of time with Crank) is OK but open time for the...

  17. '94 4.0l running rich

    My 1994 Ranger 4.0l 4x4 manual has been using more gas than usual for the last few months and it seemed to be getting worse. Checked the usual suspects, cleaned MAF and checked Fuel Pressure regulator(FPR). Plugs looked good, a little rich looking though, a little browner than normal. It has...
