Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I got a ford ranger in 2001 since a year , not to much to say since , but lately the stupid thing wont start, the day after did start , look like the fuel pump cause i cant ear it , change the pump ... same thing , not working , check all wiring.... READ THIS CAREFULLY , there is a big connection of 20-25 wires under the driver seat . the damn thing was full of green corrotion , disconnect it and connect them without the plastic connector , solder them one by one , and have a beer after

Ranger Edge V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 35,000 miles

I don't know where to start, I am really dissapointed in my pickup, I only used it on the farm, and to think, my problem was a fuel pump, since it only had 35,000 miles on it. It had 29,700 miles when I bought it. I am the 2nd owner, bought from people I know, who took great care of it. To be honest, I don't believe it is the fuel pump, but the new pump has been ordered, suppose to start on replacing it today, what else can I do.......nothing, but pay. It would be nice if someone could ease my mind, and tell me, this is a common problem. Thank you

Nothing on this vehicle is easy to fix!!! The fuel pump is in the gas tank, so you have to pull the entire gas tank just to get to the pump. This model and year must be the real cream for all of the mechanics out there being that the labor is 4X the cost of the actual part just they made it so difficult to get to everything!!!!
