 Ford ranger chassis problems

Ken - it has been on steady for a few weeks now non stop. it goes on as soon as I start it. I suppose I could replace the cap & see what happens. The fuel cap in this ranger is not the threaded type but just the type that clicks & locks into place. Once it is in its locked postion you cant turn it anymore to the right. Maybe the cap is worn just enough to allow the sensors to go off. It appears to be the original cap as it has that plastic that connects to it so that you cant loose the cap.

 Ford ranger chassis problems

ok I have a 98 ford ranger 4x4 xlt exstended cab, offroad model, Both painted bumbers rusted out, as a matter fact the front fog lights fell out due to rust. The rear tailgate is also rusted, The rest of the body is in good shape. The 3.0 siezed at 80 thousand, the rearend went around 70 thousand. the check engine light has stayed on sense changing engine. Now it need a front wheel bearing assembly(around 200 dollars). Oh by the way my throw out bearing did make noise, but when I changed out the engine I also changed out the clutch ,plate, and bearing. My dealer said they where having proplems with the vender of the throwout bearing because of this proplem. His recomadation after market, no proplems yet.
Will I get rid of this truck no, no payments and I don't put many miles on this truck, I bought a cube van for my company to replace this truck. So for around 1500 I will have a like new truck. I got lucky engine and rearend from totaled truck with only 20 thousand on it paid around 1100 for the 2. When I bought my van and my wifes jeep I bought the extended warrenty, good so far, it has at least covered the 500 dollar bill to fix the alarm on the jeep.

The fun never stops with my 98. In the last few months, the transfer case shift motor is going bad (dealer wants $500 + labor but I can probably fix it with a 10 cent bushing), drivers side window regulator is bad and I pressed the cruise control accel button one day and the three-button cluster mounted to the steering wheel just snapped off. I hope I can keep it duck-taped together for another six months.

That sounds like a cheap fix. The gas cap must be a common problem.

The Gas Cap is a very common problem, most fuel tanks require a Pressure to build up for proper operation. When the cap leaks or doesn't seal tight or even if someone pumps gas when the engine is running,, Check Engine lite will come on. Misfiring of spark plugs is another. Sensors are fool proof as of yet. If the lite comes on and STAYS on it usually is something stupid, if it FLASHES, pull over ASAP and call a Wrecker.
