We have a 4x4 ranger 2004 that locks itself up when driving, it goes
from 2wheel drive to 4 wheel drive by itself without touching
anything. Any idea what causes this and any solutions. Thanks

Subject : Tranmission troubles
Hello
I have a B2500 diesel 4x4 pickup
with a problem ,
lately I have felt that 4 wheel drive has not been right. So today I
jacked the truck up on blocks and locked the Aisin hubs, engaged low
range 4 wheel drive, started it up and had a good nose about
underneath...
Well, the propshaft to the front diff is turning.
The drive shafts to the front wheels don't turn unless I unlock the
front hubs, but even when the shafts turn the wheels stay put. So hubs
I think. The shafts seem to be merely drifting, and not driven. Next,
I switch off and rotate the driver's side wheel – the drive shaft
turns (?) It seems that the driver's side wheel IS locking onto the
shaft.
Then I do the same with the other wheel but the shaft
doesn't turn (???) Now I am puzzled. Start it up again and with handy
piece of timber I find that I can stop the drive shaft turning with
very very little effort, so they must be just drifting round with no
drive as such. What can I deduce from this ? I think the passenger
side hub is broken PLUS there is a problem in the front diff or the
drive shafts.
Thoughts anyone? ... jeff...

        yup same here, removed this sensor way back, i burn more diesel, and
        the timing runs slightly more advanced, but went through emissions
        test fine, best price i had from fords was 331 plus vat and delivery.
        spent weeks trying to find elsewhere, and breakers yards was a
        complete waste of phonecalls..best we can get is perhaps a better
        discount if we buy together perhaps.
        oem part was made by
        mitsibushi, part number J5T26371, independant suppliers cannot source
        this part new, ford part number is 1460775 (XM34-6C315-AB) if anyone
        else has a solution please let us know. as ford want crazy money for
        this very very cheap to make part. kev

UV lamp nothing. New radiator cap. Lumpy start at any time even when
warm. Checked for moisture in oil and exhaust, all OK. Runs good.

minutes but only flashes a few times then seems to go out when engine
has warmed up can anyone enlighten me to why these two problems are

    I had a similart prob with my Ranger. It was 2 failed glow plugs.
    Note that the 2005 engine needs the very expensive 80 each ceramic
    plugs. Others will fit but do not function so you have the same
    problkem but you thought you had solved it!

    First of all replace all glow plugs,dont need expensive ones,they are
    only $25 each here.If that does not improve it much then take out
    injectors and have them serviced.I had exact same symptoms with one of
    these last week and it fixed it like new.

Subject : Mazda B2500 hot start problem
I have a problem starting hot. The engine is great when cold but after
running for only 10 miles or so in warm weather the engine will refuse
to start after stopping. There is also a problem at low revs when hot
when pulling away with no response from the throttle at all. Any
ideas? Thanks in advance

  • Subject : Gearbox
    Hi there, did you ever get a workshop manual for the Mazda/Ranger. If
    so could you please give me the link.
    I have had to replace my
    gearbox in my 2004 Ranger (66k miles only). I have installed a box
    from a 2008 model (Not thinking it would be different). Ford have
    changed the gearbox radically, so its been a struggle. All is in ok
    now but it won't disengage the front diff after being in 4WD. I need a
    wiring diagram to trace the wires from the Gearbox. There is an extra
    wire from the 2008 box thats not present on the 2004 box. Hope you can
    assist.

    Regards

    Martin

      • Subject : Re : Re : Gearbox
        Hi Graham, I have completed the Gearbox change on my 2004 Ranger. The
        main probs were the prop shafts. With the 2008 Gearbox being approx 3"
        longer and the connections being different we had to get 2008 Prop
        shafts then cut and weld using a combination of old and new. The new
        gearbox is going well, no knocking ect. The new props are also
        stronger

        The hope is that this new box will be much better
        than the old. Obviously Ford/Mazda have had probs with the older box,
        the newer one looks much stronger. Upsides are the car drives and
        pulls better. However the ratios are slightly different. The downside
        (Not sorted yet) is the speedo reads approx 15MPH too fast, also every
        100 miles the dig clock reads approx 115. These are not show stoppers
        for me. This is caused by the sender module located on the gear box
        being different, and at the moment we cant see a way round
        this.

        If your box has broke, and your ok with welding or can
        get the main prop shaft machined then its actually and easy
        conversion.

        Parts needed were: (all from ebay)
        Gearbox
        450
        Full set of late mod prop shafts 150
        Cross member and
        rubber mount 25.00
        New oil 75

        The box is very heavy we
        suspended ours through the gear lever aperture untill we could fix the
        bell housing.

        Hope this helps


        Regards

Subject : Flashing glow plug
Hi, I've got a 2005 ford ranger/mazda b series with 24,000 miles which
has just started throwing up the flashing glow plug symbol after
travelling a couple of miles.Doesn't seem to affect the vehicle but
can't find out what this could mean. Any ideas?

  • Subject : Re : Flashing glow plug
    A had the same thing. Mazda expert said, the glowplug was not hot
    enough when starting the engine. Suggested to wait while the indicator
    lamp is on and to start the engine right after the indicator light
    goes out. He was right, a had waited several minutes before starting
    the engine. After some kilometers the indivator started flashing.
    Irritating, but harmless, he said.

    flashing glow plug light is engine management warning. it means that
    the system has picked up a fault the only way to find out what is to
    read fault codes. mine was caused by switch on throttle peddle but
    yours could be any of many sensors its no good second guessing as five
    months and many trips back to dealer and other auto electricans
