Summary of Complaint

MY 1999, FORD RANGER HAD BEEN MAKING A SPARKING SOUND WHEN I STARTED IT UP FOR A FEW DAYS. THEN WE TOOK IT ON A DRIVE AROUND TOWN TO DO A COUPLE ERRANDS, MAYBE EIGHT MILES. CAME HOME, TOOK THE KEYS OUT OF THE IGNITION AND WENT INSIDE. MY NEIGHBOR CAME TO MY DOOR 20 MINUTES LATER SAYING MY ENGINE WAS ON FIRE. WE OPENED THE HOOD AND SAW THE SECONDARY CRUISE CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH, LOCATED ON THE END OF THE MASTER BRAKE CYLINDER, ON FIRE. ANOTHER NEIGHBOR HAD GRABBED AN EXTINGUISHER AND PUT IT OUT. SUCH A COMMON PROBLEM I SEE NOW, BUT SOMEONE ISN'T OWNING UP TO IT. I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I WILL HAVE TO REPLACE, LUCKILY IT DIDN'T MELT THE MASTER BRAKE CYLINDER. *TR

Summary of Complaint

FRAME ROT... THE FRAME HAS RUSTED FROM THE INSIDE-OUT IN THE SAME PLACE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE VEHICLE: UNDER THE MOST-FRONT PART OF EACH DOOR (KEEP IN MIND THIS IS THE FRAME I'M TALKING ABOUT, NOT ANY KIND OF DOOR SUPPORT OR FRAMING... THIS IS THE SECTION OF BODY FRAME THAT IS LOCATED UNDERNEATH EACH DOOR ON THE VEHICLE). THE FRAME HAS RUSTED AND BEGUN TO SPLIT HORIZONTALLY (THE LENGTH OF THE VEHICLE) AND VERTICALLY (FROM THE GROUND-UP). WHEN LIFTING THE VEHICLE IN CERTAIN PLACES, THE FRAME CAN BE SEEN BENDING, OBVIOUSLY. BECAUSE OF THIS I CAN ONLY JACK/LIFT THE VEHICLE FROM THE VERY FRONT... ALL OTHER PLACES THAT I'VE TRIED TO LIFT FROM RESULT IN TOO MUCH WEIGHT BEING PUT ON THOSE WEAK POINTS. I AM NOW VERY SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING A NEW FRAME, WHICH IS A LOT OF MONEY... OR, AT THE VERY LEAST, A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT TO PULL A FRAME OFF OF A VEHICLE FROM A JUNKYARD, THEN PUT IT ON MY VEHICLE (OR RATHER, PUT MY VEHICLE ON IT). FRAME FAILURE COULD RESULT IN CATASTROPHE OR DEATH, AND THIS FRAME IS IN VERY BAD SHAPE COMPARED TO MOST VEHICLES IT'S AGE (AND MANY THAT ARE OLDER).

THIS IS MY MOTHERS PICKUP BUT SHE ASKED ME TO REPORT IT AND TRY TO FIND AN ANSWER. SHE HAS HAD THE PICKUP FOR YEARS (SHE BOUGHT IT IN 2003)...SHE BOUGHT IT FROM A NEIGHBOR. AFTER A FEW YEARS SHE STARTED HAVING A PROBLEM THAT NO ONE (NOT EVEN THE DEALERSHIP) HAS BEEN ABLE TO FIX. THIS HAS HAPPENED MANY, MANY TIMES. SOMETIMES WHEN SHE GOES TO STOP, THE TRUCK WILL SUDDENLY REV UP AND TRY TO TAKE OFF. SEVERAL TIMES THIS HAS ALMOST CAUSED ACCIDENTS (IT HAS JUMPED OUT INTO TRAFFIC, ALMOST REAR ENDED OTHER CARS, ETC). I'VE CONTACTED THE FORD COMPANY AND THEY HAVE TOLD ME TO GO TO THE DEALERSHIP. WE DONE THAT WITH NOTHING RESOLVED. SEVERAL PARTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND THEY HAVE UPDATED THE COMPUTER, BUT IT STILL DOES IT. THIS IS MY MOM'S ONLY VEHICLE AND SHE IS SCARED TO DRIVE IT, BUT CAN'T SELL IT WITH THIS KIND OF PROBLEM. WE HAVE HAD THE SENSOR REPLACED, THROTTLE CABLE REPLACED, CRUISE CONTROL CABLE CHECKED, CHECKED FOR A VACUUM LEAK. THANK YOU *TR
