    Any current/former Audi owners? (A4)

    Bolded the problem. Chick buying high maintenance/care car! You know they don't change the oil but every 30,000 miles! Just kidding! :-P Although, the women in my family... do prove that to be correct. Although I do know, 2002 is one of the, not so good years, there is several common problems...

    New Ride! Good bye 98 Explorer Sport!

    Well I talked to my friend at the nearby Ford Dealership about mods and warrenty and he said Intake, Exhaust, Throttle body, nothing like that will void it. The throttle body will only Void the warrenty for THAT part is what he told me. I didn't ask him about the Flasher, but that can be changed...

    Rancho Pros/cons

    I have Rancho RS5000's and I love them. They are a great buy, I got mine at Summit Racing for ~$38 Each. I forgot how much Bilestien's were there, I think ~$55 Ea? But they would definately be the best buy. If you do little off roading, I would say just get the Rancho's and save the extra cash...

    Late Model Ranger 4x4 Problems?

    03 ford ranger speed

    You CAN switch the limiter on and off. My friend is a Ford Tech and he DID rig it up to just an on/off switch. I don't know exactly what he did, but I've seen in first hand on the interstate, on he couldn't get past 95. Flipped the switch and could. He has a 98 Mazda B 3.0.

    Tranny and 4x4 Problems

    Don't jump off the cliff and purchase a new one. The "module" they are talking about it simply the little electric shift motor that shifts it from Hi to Low. They are most likely dirty, not bad. If you don't mind getting your hands a little dirty go a head and clean it and give it a shot, its...

    Thanks for all the responces! Ya, I know the Toyota is a little out there for what I want, I would have to save up a little more cash to get it, but I think its my "top choice". There are a couple Sport Trac's around here for the very top of my price range with 60-70K miles though, so I...

    03 ford ranger speed

    1. Spindle is correct, its a limiter, can be very easily removed and added to a switch. My friend did it to his Mazda B. 2. I'm not sure about everywhere, but here in Florida, all of those "Radar Trailors" are all 3 Mph lower, even radar guns are. Its like a service factor... Could be the...

    1998 Explorer 4x4 won't engage

    Unless there is a difference between how long the battery is disconnected to do other things then reset the computer, you can unplug it for like 5 and get the same results... Correct me if Im wrong, but I unplug for that long and it resets.

    Replacing Upper Balljoints, tips?

    Thanks for the advice. And sorry for putting under "wrong" forum. I originally was writing up a post for any advice on Rancho RS5000 Shocks and balljoints, if there was any tricks, but figured I didn't need any info on shocks so I deleted that part. I wasn't able to get to ball joints today...
