Here's the deal. I have a 2006 Ford Ranger purchased in March 2008 with 10K miles. I use it for pilot car/escort business. I now have 97K miles. Recently my check engine light came on. Engine codes showed low compression in cylinders 4 and 5. After new plugs and coil, the light still remains on. I recently took vehicle to another mechanic and after a compression check said cylinders four and five were lower than others. My truck actually runs really well; however after engines is warm it idles very rough and engine light flashes. After 1000 RPMs it smoothes on out. I have not experienced any loss of power while on the road which is quite a bit. The mechanic did some research and found where there may be some faulty valves involved. The repairs are estimated at $1500.00 Another estimate is $1200.00. I don't mind paying, I just want an honest repair. My truck is my lifeline and I have done all maintenance religiously.
have the same problem?
