Hey Maaaaaaannnn, you still have your truck right? Can you help me move? We review a 2007 Ford Ranger pickup truck.

  • Amesie's Automotive Corner
    Amesie's Automotive Corner 2 года назад The oil filter placement on the 3.0 is awesome, It's directly above the exposed live wires for the starter in a spot a hand can barley fit. If the filter slips out of your hand and jams against the starter it will arc the terminals and crank the motor over uncontrollably with no oil then catch fire from the spraying lube.. Saab Sonett Broh!
  • Nick Crane
    Nick Crane 2 года назад before doing all this, I would disconnect the battery first
  • Mel Laknanurak
    Mel Laknanurak 2 года назад That's 80s American engineering for you. Haha 😂
  • crashandburnbirner
    crashandburnbirner 2 года назад Amesie's Automotive Corner no that's great because oil always gets on the starter and kills it.
  • Wookie AutomoTV
    Wookie AutomoTV 2 года назад Amesie's Automotive Corner yeah I don't miss working on the Ranger we had with that motor. Although spark plugs on an Ecotec S-10 are just as fun.
  • Dieselrök
    Dieselrök 2 года назад nah, Saab Turbo bro! :D
  • Goot
    Goot 2 года назад Saab for life :D
  • gattis45
    gattis45 2 года назад This is absolutely not true, I've changed the oil on mine countless times and never had a problem. The oil filter placement is a pain in the ass, but for anything to go awry the way you've described... You'd have to be a complete dumbass, and basically do this on purpose.
  • Matt Farah's Million Mile Lexus
    Matt Farah's Million Mile Lexus 2 года назад Ancient V4 Ford powered Saab crapwagon. Born from jets. Really shitty jets.
  • Amesie's Automotive Corner
    Amesie's Automotive Corner 2 года назад gattis45 every new guy at the Mazda dealer I worked at fumbled it once. you must be working in the ground..
  • InvictvsNox
    InvictvsNox 2 года назад This comment is the winner. lmao
  • pilotsebastian
    pilotsebastian 2 года назад In the defense of the Ranger, the Vulcan engine was made for a FWD car. And in my case dropping the oil filter wrench only began to short circuit the engine. That was fun.
  • Wookie AutomoTV
    Wookie AutomoTV 2 года назад @pilotsebastian I managed to do the same on the that shop truck we had. Definitely an attention getter lol.
  • Thomas Dumville
    Thomas Dumville 2 года назад you forgot you have to wedge your hand past the exhaust too
  • Terry Hesticles
    Terry Hesticles 2 года назад Every time I do an oil change on one, I somehow manage to smack the starter with the butt-end of the wrench 🔧, which either shocks the piss out of me, or just creates a fireworks show. :-/
  • beeeraddd
    beeeraddd 2 года назад Not to mention if you have 4wd the front diff is directly in the way
  • thegoof529
    thegoof529 2 года назад I love leaking oil all over my starter when I replace my oil filter 😂
  • Al Lewis
    Al Lewis 2 года назад That's why you get a 4.0. Oil filter is on the bottom and easy to get to right next to the oil pan.
  • thegoof529
    thegoof529 2 года назад Al Lewis or do what I'm doing and buy a V8 ranger 👍🏼
  • Justin P
    Justin P 2 года назад Amesie's Automotive Corner I'd rather have the 3.0 than the SOHC 4.0, they have lots of timing chain issues
  • 72Disco1998
    72Disco1998 2 года назад Justin P. that was fixed with a recall. The 4.0 is a very robust engine.
  • Pat Day
    Pat Day 2 года назад Amesie's Automotive Corner unless you have the igntion on it should just produce sparks when you touch metal to it
  • TheeJoeyLee
    TheeJoeyLee 2 года назад I have the 4.0 OHV .all tourque. low reving. its a 93 and starts dead of winter better than my 65k mile honda does, with less noise also. Its only got 465,xxxmi or 565,xxx miles, lost track
  • Austin Lucas
    Austin Lucas 2 года назад (изменено) Look at an aftermarket oil filter relocation kit then if it'll work, I can't recommend one but there are a few crucial requirements of how you route the hoses so they don't mess up.

  • Jo Mo
    Jo Mo Год назад 1994 it had to compete with the hardbody and that tacoma it was hungry
  • Jjames763
    Jjames763 Год назад It raises the question of which engine is worse: the wheezy, temperamental, horrendously designed Vulcan, or the terminally slow but positively bulletproof Iron Duke?
  • Tom Parry
    Tom Parry Год назад gattis45 You are correct. There are a lot of dumbass's, most of them GM fanboys. My dad used to have a 3.0L in a Taurus and it went half a million kms and still didn't burn a drop of oil. Very good engine.
  • Tom Parry
    Tom Parry Год назад TheeJoeyLee Yes sir. I had one in my '93 Explorer Sport 5-speed and it was just under 500K when sold and it used zero oil and still had full power. Only complaint was that I lost 5th gear in that manual Mazda transmission. But smoothest manual I ever owned. Great Clutch. VERY torquey engine.
  • Electronics For Fun
    Electronics For Fun Год назад yeah or you could just not be a dumbass and unhook your battery before you do any work on your car.
  • Electronics For Fun
    Electronics For Fun Год назад Terry Hesticles+ bullshit, the day a 12v battery shocks somebody is the day the sky falls. here is why it is impossible for a car battery to shock you, #1 you have probably have shoes on which completely isolates you from DC so the only was for you to get shocked would be if you made a circuit between yourself and the battery and even still that won't work because wet human skin is between 1-5K‎Ω and you would need at least 50v DC to over come that kind of resistance and even still the amount of current being pushed through you wouldn't even be equivalent to a static shock from fuzzy slippers on shag carpet, you wouldn't even feel it. and it would be even more so with dry hands, so you would need like 20 car batteries wired in series to get a painful shock. so you cannot be shocked by a car battery unless you are putting in a massive effort to be shocked.
  • Raven James
    Raven James Год назад the old 4.0L V6 was better
  • Jay Man
    Jay Man Год назад Not as bad as the Chevrolet Traverse. When changing the oil. It makes a big mess and you will burn your arm trying to get the oil filter off.
  • air horn
    air horn Год назад Mr. Regular's angry/horny voice "But I prefer it that way"
  • GunsOfThePhoenix
    GunsOfThePhoenix Год назад Holy fuck thats a bad design.
  • Canadian Colin
    Canadian Colin 11 месяцев назад I'm pretty sure I saw you driving on route 11 passing the town of New London NH last fall
  • Canadian Colin
    Canadian Colin 11 месяцев назад Also I saw a red Saab station wagon with European plates in Andover NH last week
  • Justin Stearns
    Justin Stearns 11 месяцев назад Who the fuck is going to unhook the battery to do an oil change? That’s about as asinine as draining the coolant to change a CV axle.
  • baraka flaka
    baraka flaka 10 месяцев назад Uhhh i own a 3.0 and the filter placement is incredibly easy to get to. I can do it by hand if I need to but use a filter wrench with no issues at all. Even has a drip slide to put a pan under so all the oil from the filter doesnt drip all over the engine. You sir have no clue what your talking about. Maybe I can walk you through it sometime. Maybe tie your shoes and wipe your lip drool too.
  • Adrian B
    Adrian B 10 месяцев назад Amesie's Automotive Corner Hujhuuuuu
  • Jordan Fratus
    Jordan Fratus 10 месяцев назад Amesie's Automotive Corner mine has a funnel I’ve had 3 rangers never had a problem changing oil or filters all of em with really high mileage nothing wrong with the 3.0 Vulcan that’s known for 300k the guy making this video isn’t worthy of driving a ranger
  • Tomas Valdez
    Tomas Valdez 8 месяцев назад Amesie's Automotive Corner this post triggered my PTSD
  • John Cayer
    John Cayer 7 месяцев назад Over 30 oil changes later and I still have yet to encounter this problem 😂

    Collin Howlett 7 месяцев назад @Hillyard yeah cause you actually have a brain, there's plenty of room from the top.
  • Yard Sale Dale
    Yard Sale Dale 6 месяцев назад Amesie's Automotive Corner remote oil filter mount. Summit racing
    BAM HAMMER 4 месяца назад @72Disco1998 what recall I've own my ranger getting ready to start my 7th year I've never got one recall on mine for a oil filter. Now i have got a recall for my airbags but thats it.
  • 72Disco1998
    72Disco1998 4 месяца назад @BAM HAMMER No dispute sir.
  • 72Disco1998
    72Disco1998 4 месяца назад @BAM HAMMER I owned a 4.0 98 Explorer 2wd, I happened to have driven in an unseen flood. It conked out, but the reason I'm a Ford owner is I let it sit for a day. I cranked to start that engine. Even after ingesting water it actually ran better.

  • Andrew Gonzales
    Andrew Gonzales 2 месяца назад What worked like a charm for me is go through the driver side wheel well oil filter is a arm stretch away. 98 ranger 3.0 still kicking strong
    ANDREW STRICKLE 2 месяца назад 4.0 aint any better. Its crammed under the engine and takes forever to just get off.
  • Mobes

  • adan flores
    adan flores 6 месяцев назад Same
  • Doxx Holiday
    Doxx Holiday 5 месяцев назад This guy is lazy and apparently doesn’t research much. The 4.0 and 4 cylinder are reliable and affordable to maintain.
  • Sansabar MichaelRoyGalbraith
    Sansabar MichaelRoyGalbraith 4 месяца назад This guy has no clue. Ford Rangers are not a Mazda. They are 100% Ford. And my 99 3.0 has been extremely reliable
  • John Doe
    John Doe 4 месяца назад My dad had a 2000 Ford Ranger with the very stout 2.3 litre four cylinder that l believe was a Mazda engineered design. Anyway, great truck. Never broke down. Only replaced tires, brake pads, oil, filters, and the battery in owning it for 9 years. He sold it with 140,000+ miles on it. I still see it driving around on occasion the next town over. It was a little, happy puppy dog kind of truck
  • Rusty Shackelford
    Rusty Shackelford 2 месяца назад yea they last forever
  • Copper-Brass
    Copper-Brass Неделю назад Doxx Holiday even the 3.0 wasn’t too bad when it was in production
  • Sam
    Sam 1 день назад 04' 3.0 V6 and barley any repairs. It'll probably kill me in an accident but other than that no complaints
  • Silly Reviews
    Silly Reviews 2 года назад I loved the shot of him throwing the repair book.

  • dave96_118
    dave96_118 2 года назад People can rag on a Ranger all they want. I have a 1991 that I just rolled over 300 thousand miles and drive it daily with no issues
  • Hank's Garage
    Hank's Garage 2 года назад FireFighter#47 I've owned 4 of them, had a 95 that was passed onto my brother 3.0 and 5 speed. Had over 300k by the time he wrecked it. Other than normal maintenance it never needed anything else. I have a 99 3.0 auto now. Idk what he's talking about high maintenance, none of mine have been. 3 of the 4 I've had were 3.0s...
  • Austin Lucas
    Austin Lucas 2 года назад (изменено) Hmm, maybe it varies from year to year; maybe newer ones aren't as easy. I have no idea though.
  • Griffin Totty
    Griffin Totty 2 года назад My uncle has had two, one that I wrecked that need an engine at 206k and the replacement and we love/loved both of them and besides the cylinder wall wearing through we haven't had any major issues
  • TheSpazModic
    TheSpazModic 2 года назад The old 2.3, how such an underpowered engine could last so incredibly astonishing.
    ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ 2 года назад +FireFighter#47 right my 2005 xlt has been running great since the day i bought it
  • austin1002
    austin1002 2 года назад Underpowered engines are also generally understressed. Look at the reliability and the maintenance requirements for high performance engines. Then compare those to boring, low horsepower engines like in the Ranger or an econobox car. Many lower end or day-to-day commuter car engines are intentionally underpowered to help with longevity. Derating the horsepower places less stress on the engine and related components.
  • austin1002
    austin1002 2 года назад Absolutely not bullshit. Take a look at all engines known for extreme reliability. They are NOT performing at maximum power, and for good reason. Take those same engines and add some forced induction. See how long things last like that.
  • TheSpazModic
    TheSpazModic 2 года назад I agree.  A lot of rev's just to keep up, but 5 main bearings and all cast-iron in the old 2.3, 2.5, etc.  The old "industrial" engines found in medium-duty trucks were typically de-bored and de-tuned versions of larger engines.  Examples include the Ford 370 and the GM 366.  Small-block displacement in a big-block package.  Oh, and one of my favorites...the IH 345.
