Ford Ranger 2011 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Ranger 2011 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ford Ranger XL 2011: Difficult to start on a cold engine.

    Normally this would be an issue with the glow plugs, but the 2.5 turbo-diesel Rangers seem to occasionally have an issue with the assembly around the fuel filter (which includes the water trap and primer pump) sucking in air. This can be fixed by replacing the unit as a whole. Similarly Ranger owners have reported trouble cold-starting their 2.5 TD when the valve stopping fuel flowing back into the tank from the pump fails. Try priming your fuel system a couple of times before starting and if it starts up fine then replace that valve near the fuel pump.

  • Fourth gear problems with 2011 Ford Ranger

    How did you determine the gearbox oil was low? An additive won’t do anything for you, except maybe fix a leaking seal, but you don’t say if there is a leak present. Take it to a mechanic.

  • Ford Ranger clutch issues

    The clutch issue is not confined to the Ranger, other brands suffer the same problems, which suggests that the clutches used are marginal for towing. Your experience is not unusual, and should be a warning to everyone else looking to buy a ute to tow with. The normal fix is to install a heavy-duty aftermarket clutch, as you have done. Unfortunately carmakers have an out, in that they state quite clearly that the clutch is not covered by the warranty, and it's difficult to say what kilometres you should expect to get from a clutch before it would need replacing.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra Ranger cruise control recall

    Never take anything for granted, it pays to check and check again if you’re not certain that the work being carried out on your car is what is supposed to be done. Never feel afraid to ask questions, and always remember that you are the customer, the one who has spent the dollars to buy the car.
