Could have been a stuck thermostat or a faulty water pump.
You may now have a leaking head gasket.

My 2006 Ford Ranger has trouble turning over after it has ran, and then sat for an hour or so. But if it sits over night, it has no problem turning over when I go to start it?


If the starter isn't reacting at all when warmed up, that's usually your problem right there. After it cools down the armature in the starter allows the power to flow. BUT CHECK THE BATTERY & ALTERNATOR TOO! CK FOR ELEC SHORTS AT BATT.

Starter?the care will not start sometimes....


this is probably the starter solenoid. When this happens again try hitting the solenoid with something and see if it starts right up. I am assuming your battery is fine and the connections have been checked as good. you can replace the solenoid alone if that is the problem and it is an easy fix.

Oil pressure slow to rise


you need to try a external gauge to check the pressure to see if your dash gauge is right

if the engine took 10 minutes to get oil pressure it would be dead by now i would replace the oil pressure sender unit first

1996 ford ranger which is not driven regularly had to go about 40 miles on highway.Did not have to shift for about 35 miles when I was exiting the clutch felt like it was frozen I coasted to a stop.I could...


If the truck has been sitting, I would be looking into the bell housing for mouse nest. Chipmunks and mice love to make nests in there. Nut shells and other debris will interfer when clutch pedal is depressed. All that **** falls in between the pressure plate and slave cylinder. It's hard to clean out without removing transmission. Good Luck

what you realy need to do is check your fuel pressure. it sound like a fuel pressure regulator . but ive also seen a dirty fuel system and defective fuel pumps do the same thing.
