Well good times can change quickly
Started up Ranger this morning ... sounded abit rough ... let it idle abit longer than usual - about 1 hour by the time I decided to take to garage.
Sounded like electrical [wiring] issue ... tried old fashion tips ... poured water on coil ... nothing - kept running. Shut truck off ... poured on water ... fired right up. hmmmmmm
With truck running poured on distributor ... abit of sputter ..but kept running
Drove up to garage ... mechanic met me outside ... truck didn't even make it into garage.
He checked all park plug wires
He checked [pulled] and cleaned rotor & checked cap
Brought out his 'doctor listener' .... engine problems - bottom end - sounds like a bearing I'm told ....
So to begin ... what now .. REBUILD or BUY another 2.9L
I'm told it's easier to change from underneath [rebuild] - IDEAS??
I know I'm feeling despair ... too much other invested in truck to scrap ... good times - solid original body
