With Winter approaching, the Rangie will go into hibernation. Thought a good project would be to make sure all the ground wires were in good shape.
Does anyone have a list of where they are all located?
Thx in advance.
1994 RRC LWB with child lock. Yesterday the rear windows would not operate although the day before they did. Fiddled with the child lock switch and then they worked. Took the switch off and cleaned the contacts. The windows didn’t work immediately yet after the second attempt did.
Have recently noticed a slight ping while driving uphill. It is really slight yet I can hear it.
Use 93 octane.
4.2 engine with recent work - heads, timing chain, etc.
What do you think?
Thanks in advance.
Yep, something let loose under the dash and the worst nightmare of RRC owership came to fruition.
All of the coolant gushed into the inerior and of course the windshield fogged over immediately.
Was very lucky a large parking lot was across the road from where it happened so I could pull in...
When I press the switch to turn on the heating elements, the switch doesn't engage and just pops back.
Or has it been so long that I actually forgot that is the way it is supposed to work???
Thanks in advance.
First real problem with the Rangie. Under aggressive acceleration or load, backfires, snorts, and other nasty stuff.
And idles like shit until warm.
New plugs, wires, rotor, distributor cap and still runs really poorly.
Intake manifold gasket and seals also replaced.
Bung in the top radiator hose blew out going up a hill.
Fighting a lean running condition and truck just back from shop so listening for ping and watching temp gauge closely while going up the hill.
Low coolant light came on and temp gauge started to climb so pulled over immediately and turned...
Time is getting closer for our move back to the US and recently purchased a '96 D1 SD on which I would like to have some work done.
Nothing really intense, yet, will not have a garage handy for awhile.
Will be moving to Somerset, PA actually. A shop around the Eastern side of Pittsburgh...
