1992 Ford Ranger V6


Boring, rugged, and somehow still kicking


I backed into a street lamp with it once.

Also, this truck had a rare defect in the transmission, causing it to NOT spontaneously fail like all other Rangers and Explorers of the same production run.

General Comments:

The truck was previously owned by my grandfather (who has since passed away), which he gifted to me after purchasing a new truck. It had practically none of the options available aside from an automatic transmission. In spite of that, it was remarkably reliable; I never did any maintenance in the short time I owned it.

I ended up selling the vehicle to my great uncle once my Skyline was up and running again. To the truck's credit, it is still on the road.

It is a great reliable vehicle, getting good gas mileage along with good power


My Dad replaced the alternator when he had it at 125000 miles.

I had to replace the transmission at 165000 miles.

I had to replace the starter at 175000 miles.

I had to replace the rear axle at 182000 miles.

General Comments:

The truck has very good acceleration, getting up to speed very quickly.

It also climbs hills with ease, which is very good in the Rocky Mountains where I live.

The 4.0 is unbeatable, starting on the coldest of days, and runs perfect, even with having almost 200000 miles.

The truck is very reliable and is very cheap to maintain. I would rather take this truck in the woods than any other truck, because I know this truck will keep on kicking and bring me home.

It is very good off road, and I have pushed its limits, tearing up a U joint last year while getting out of a ditch with 3 foot of snow in it. Well I got out by myself; just had to gas it hard

This truck is very easy to work on. My Dad and I have done all the tune ups and fixes on it, and it is a little tight in the engine, but I have seen much, much worse, so no complaints.

I also love the mileage I get. I can drive it like I like to drive, getting around 18 MPG in town, while still getting up to speed quick.

On the highway I get 22 MPG at 70mph, and around 24 at 55 in overdrive. I can't complain about the mileage at all.

It has some lack of comfort, due to a small cab with two small jump seats in the back.

It also lacks airbags, electric windows and locks.

But that is also the best part, it is simple: less to break = less to fix is how I look at it.

Overall this is a great truck, which I recommend to anyone who wants a reliable vehicle.

1992 Ford Ranger Sport 3.0 V6


A solid small pickup


Nothing so far.

General Comments:

It was poorly maintained by the last owner, I bought it cheap so I had a truck when I needed one. I have put about $500 worth of parts into it to get it to a decent drivable state.

The frame is in excellent shape for spending its life in the northeast, the body is good for its age. I sold my 77 F-100, it was more truck than I needed, this Ranger is a good size for me, just wish it was an extended cab.

Fuel economy seems rather good, not sure what I'm getting, but I would guess about 23-24.

Great for work and play. Love it


Replaced muffler system, new alternator, new tires, brake line, front end rod, and oil gauge never worked.

General Comments:

What I listed above is nothing. The truck is awesome, I love it. I paid $1800, put in not at 1 time, maybe $1.000. The truck has 400.000 miles, and still works and plays hard. Love mine. Two thumbs up for my Ranger.
