    Harrison Ford, the Ď96 Ranger

    So we used some of the settlement money from the Cabriolet being backed into, I just popped the dent out and bought a truck yesterday . We have been wanting one since we moved into a house. Itís a Ď96 Ford Ranger XLT, 166,xxx miles, 4 speed manual with overdrive, 2.3 4 cylinder, new tires and newer brakes.

    It runs really good. It has a bunch of little oddball needs, missing center caps, various bad bulbs, has some body damage that I will work out later(not to worried about it itís a house truck), carpet needs shampooing and I want to replace locks and ignition cylinder. Passenger side lock is bad and the ignition cylinder is a little wacky. But canít really complain since it technically was a free truck. Only big thing I need to figure out is why the heater doesnít get warm.


    I took care of all but 2 off the burnt/missing bulb, got the fluids to the correct level, replaced a bad seat belt receiver, a couple missing interior trim pieces and changed the wiper blades last night. I found some replacement center caps this morning.

    This isnít a project vehicle, but i will be getting up to my standard for my vehicles, slowly but surely.

    Definitely think the thermostat is stuck open, causing the cool heater.
