2006 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 202011

Ranger 6-cyl

  • 69,440 miles


Vehicle stalled in middle of an intersection at 46,00 miles and was found to have lean codes P0171 and P0174-they replaced the intertia switch. Vehicle went in for service and a PO306 cylinder misfire, but paperwork stated could not duplicate. After repair, vehicle kept giving me the check engine light if I filled the tank up with gas, but would clear itself before I would get to the dealer. One day I am makeing a left hand turn and the check engine light had come on about 5 minutes before. The Ford Ranger sputters across the intersection and then speed up very fast. II was lucky not to get smashed, as the light changed while my vehicle was sputtering. I immediatly took my truck to my trusted auto technician (not a Ford dealership)who told me I had po codes PO304 and PO316.the tech provided me with tsb number: 05-26-3 date of issue 12/31/05-(they knew my vehicle would fail before I purchased it!) the tsb states 3.0L-2V vulcan engine. Mil on various misfire related dtc's P0300 - PO306 and P0316 issue 12/31/05 my 2006 Ranger with 69,000 mi displays all for the issues indicated on this tsb. This malfunction causes the mil lamp to continually display trouble codes P0302 and P0316. Because of this, my vehicle will not pass the ca state emissions inspection. The tsb states that if diagnostic tests indicate an engine exhaust valve seat recession, the cylinder heads will need to be replaced with the new service heads and is to be covered under emission warranty. I took the vehicle to the Ford dealership. Pacfic Ford redid the diagnosis and stated the issue was outlined in the tsb. They also stated that the parts were not covered by either the new vehicle or emissions warranty coverage. I called the Ford crc and was told there was nothing they could do to assist with payment to correct their defective part. The failure is not being corrected at this time.
