1996 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 134000 miles
I own a 1996 Ford Ranger 4.0 liter V6, manual transmission that I pull behind my motorhome. At about 75000 miles the Check Engine light came on (and stays on). Local Ford Dealer tried about $300.00 worth of sensors, but after a few days the "check engine" light would come back on. Finally, they told me it would take "extensive diagnostic and repair charges" to repair the defect and suggested I might "drive it like it is". I have driven it for about 60000 miles since that time and the light still is on.
However! I spent a week in Estes Park, Colorado (at an elevation of 6800 feet and above) and after the second day the light went out and stayed out all the time I was there. When I returned home the lamp came back on after only one day. I went to the Ford place and told them about that. They suggested it "might be" a "pressure" sensor or "altitude" sensor, but couldn't be sure. They wanted another $300 or so to find out. I said no.
Can you help?
have the same problem?
