The part in the picture below is the HPOP oil rail that sits on top of the injectors, which are computer controlled by a separate module called a FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module). The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) sends commands to the Injection Pressure Regulator (IPR) to modulate the amount of oil pressure in the rails that act on the injectors to force fuel into the cylinders at up 40,000 psi!

Mobile Mechanic says “Oil is the life blood, change it often!”

These trucks will not start if they are too low on oil, or if there are leaks in the HPOP system. Also maintenance is CRITICAL! Do oil changes every 5,000 miles religiously! Even if you use Synthetic oil, extended oil change intervals are NOT recommended.
Dirty oil damages the internal components and can greatly accelerate failure of the HPOP systems seals and IPR. Another common problem is the screen in the oil sump below the oil filter housing, the screen deteriorates and pieces of it get sucked into the HPOP damaging the pump and the IPR.
There are updated components to replace some of the common failure items, the right Mobile Mechanic can keep you up and running wherever you are, from south orange county, to Ventura, Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Irvine, Anaheim, Huntington Beach, etc, yu get the idea, pretty much from south OC to the north through LA, Long Beach and along the 101 west into Ventura County.

1998 Ford Ranger Blend Door Actuator Replacement

Answer this question: “Temperature blend door not working”

“Can I get at this valve assembly without removing the dash ? Where exactly is this thing located ? Chiltons’ show only the cable controlled unit. I have the non cable unit. How can I install manually controlled temp blend door positioner? I think the actuator works but the link arm is broke. I need to see what is going on before I commit to removing the dash and plenum.”

I have done it on the Ranger (and other ford vehicles are similar) without removing the dash.

The blend door actuator is relatively inexpensive, about $50 at a parts store, and although the repair instructions say the instrument panel must be removed I have done a few with taking out the dash.

The actuator is a small black box with an connector. it sits on top of the plenum and attaches directly to the blend door shaft. It is a small electric motor that is controlled by the temperature dial on the dash and turns the blend door to change hot/cold position. the plastic gear inside the unit strips out, that’s why you can hear it “doing something” but the door doesn’t move.

You may be able to replace it without taking out the dash. remove the glove box and lower trim panel under the glove box, look through the opening to the left towards the middle of the truck, on top of the plenum for a small black box (about 2 or 3″ square and 1″ tall) with a single connector – remove the connector and get a mirror in above it to see the screws.

The toughest part is getting the right tool and your hand into the tight space, but it can be done,

Good luck!
