1988 Ford Ranger STX 2.9 Liter from North America
Strong reliable light 4x4 (Good first truck!)
Fuel pump got weak.
Fuel Injectors got dirty (cleaned em and they were fine).
Rear differential spider gear shattered.
Left front wheel bearings burned up and caused my 4x4 hub to break off. (Should have been made of steel).
Keep in mind that my truck gets driven HARD.
This truck appeared to be in realy bad condition when I first got it. It had been crashed by it's second owner. After wrecking it they got scared parked it and left it for years.
I got the truck and replaced the majority of the body panels and the weak fuel pump and to my surprise the engine and suspention were in perfect condition.
This is my first truck so it went through the trials and errors of my being it's third learned driver including being driven through a deep ditch at 30 miles an hour. It has been a realy tough truck and still goes good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
