Go by your local auto parts store, or you could just call them. They should be able to look up all that info except brake fluid. There really isn't a spec for the amount of brake fluid your vehicle will hold. what I can tell you is that it's not over a gallon. It's probably somewhere around a quart of fluid. Your owners manual will tell you how often to change what fluids. If you don't have a owners manual, since your truck is still somewhat new, you should be able to go by your local Ford dealership and get one.

under sever driving cionditions change oil every 3000, if not using full syn....tranny service every 30,000 , rad service at 100,000 then once a year after the first service, service 4 wheel drive and transfer case every 50,000. takes 5 qts oil, 12 qts tranny fluid (if auto) 3.75 qts if manual, 5.5 gal antifreeze capacity, 2.2 qt capacity in front and rear differential, 2.0 capacity in transfer case........why the hell do I have this information off of the top of my head? There is no listed specification for brake fluid capacity or clutch cylinder capacity for a ford ranger.......
