Not really sure what to tell you. The Rangers in general are a fairly strong and reliable truck that holds its own in the truck market (just needs to be redesigned.) Here are a few of the engine specs for that engine. 1. Horsepower is 205 2. Torque is 240 @ 3000 rpms 3. Mileage is 15city/19hwy

That is for the 2001-present Single Over Head Cam engines. The older Over Head Valve engines get 225 tq @ 2,400 rpm. The 2000 and older get between 17 city & 22 highway.

The 4.0 V6 is a powerful truck and a 2001 compared to a brand new F-150 probably has more torque because in about 2004 Ford started making low end torque F-150s and I dont know why.

they are very good engines,only one problem i have found with this engine,is the spark plugs are a job to replace.

Talking to different mechanics the new 4.o's are quite hard on fuel but they have a lot of torque for a 6

overall a good and strong motor will put up with some shit only thing i dont like, is there tendencies to eat the #1 and 3 spark plugs

It's part of the Vulcan family of motors made by ford from the early eighties onward. All are 60 degree V-6s and range from 2.6 Liters to 4.0

had one in my 95 ranger single cab short box...that truck flew...does a great brake stand and has almost too much torque for a small truck. spark plugs are tough to change...valve cover gaskets aren't easy either (if you drive it hard you'll have to replace them)

Actualy it is part of the cologne engine family. The Vulcan was the 3.0 v6 made to replace the 2.9 cologne and the 3.8 essex in midsize cars and the ranger. There is just the 3.0 in the Vulcan family, and it has nothing in common with the cologne engine family.

Would like to know if there are any 4.0 electronic fuel injected engines out there for sale for a 1998 Ford Ranger XLT, If so please respond to dthskp@hotmail.com, or call 40-399-5340 or leave a message at 406-357-2521, I am located in Montana and my name is Dean. Thanks
