I am seriously out of money this year for anything major and my extended cab is taking a crap (1 cylinder miss and water disappearing) so I have to just drive it for a few months. Need to fix the ex cab my 15 year old is going to be driving here in a few months.
Jim, you are definately not alone there. Your extd cab Ranger with the miss & loosing water is that the 4.0 OHV you were talking about in another post?. It sure sounds to me like it has a cracked head. did you ever pull the spark plug from the cylinder that has the miss? The cylinder that I had the problem with was the drivers side front. Replace the spark plug & see how long it runs good before it fouls out again.
