I'm just guessing it was a downshift. Can feel engine speed up and truck jerk forward, then back to normal. It's a 4x2 with rear locking differential.
Not able to recreate the problem for diagnosis, but will check fluid tomorrow.
When making a left turn and I apply a little throttle, the 2019 Ranger suddenly makes a violent downshift pushing me forward. Scares the heck out of me. Happened twice recently on my automatic transmission. Any one else experience this and what is causing this ??
Has anyone actually received these letters ?? Ford is still giving me the run around because my Ranger build date was not part of program ... even though my 4 wires were missing. Really poor customer service.
Ranger sat for two days and then taken out for short errand. It then gave me a message "system off to save battery", and there was a barely audible beep in center of engine. Sound went on about every four seconds for about 15 minutes.
I'll give the battery a load test like Phil mentioned in a...
My OEM tires are the Bridgestone Dueler H/T. With 10,000 miles on them and few travel trailer towing trips, I'm really happy with them ... quite, good traction, handles fine. Pleasant surprise for an OEM tire.
Came home after 3 week vacation and the Ranger battery barely able to start engine. Used truck for two days , but battery did not recharge. Dealer replaced it under warranty.
So, if I leave the Ranger parked at the airport for a two week trip, do I have to disconnect the battery to avoid a...
I had the dealer find an XL/STX with locking differential. He found one at another dealer and it was at a surprising good price. Very happy with the Ranger.
Had an International Scout II 4x4 a number of years back and still got stuck.
Ford really let Ranger owners down with towing. Failed to provide complete and accurate information on what a aftermarket controller and what a factory installed controller can and cannot do. Left all of us to guess.
Also failed to provide the four wires under the dash on all vehicles...
My first tow. Round trip Sacramento to Bodega Bay about 300 miles. Ran into 12 to 15 mph steady winds going there; a little sway and 12 mpg. No wind on way back and got 21 mpg; huge difference. Have a WDH without sway control.
Big Blue ... does your Centerline WDH have sway control, and...
I too love the SuperCab; need the six foot bed. Harder to find in Sacramento region, but I guess that is because the Crew has a bigger profit margin. Locking rear differential was the more difficult option to find.
I'd like to understand the trailer sway control feature a bit better. Does the feature apply brakes on the Ranger, the trailer, or both ? How does the Ranger detect trailer sway ? Is there a sensor on the Ranger to detect sway ? Would appreciate any help.
