Defrost – Distributes outside air
through the windshield defroster ducts.
It can be used to clear ice or fog from
the windshield.
Max A/C (if equipped) – Max A/C is the
best way to cool off fast because it
uses recirculated air and less power to
quickly cool the vehicle. MAX A/C is
noisier than A/C, but more economical
and efficient. This mode can also be
used to prevent undesirable odors
from entering the vehicle. The air
conditioning will only function if the
outside temperature is about 6°C (43°F)
or higher.
Fuel Tank Capacity – Regular-cab vehicles with a short wheel base have a 16.5-gallon tank, while
regular-cab vehicles with a long wheel base have a 20-gallon tank. The fuel tank of SuperCab
vehicles can accommodate 19.5 gallons of gasoline. All Rangers are designed to use "Regular"
unleaded gasoline with pump (R+M)/2 octane rating of 87 for optimum performance. Flex fuel 3.0L
engines are capable of using up to an 85% ethanol blend in any combination with "Regular"
unleaded gasoline. The use of gasoline with lower octane ratings may degrade performance.
Tire Pressure – Your tire pressure is properly set at the dealership according to the recommended
specifications found on the Certification Label located on the front door latch pillar on the driver’s side.
Proper tire pressure is very important for a smooth and safe ride. Please check your tire
pressure during routine maintenance and seasonal changes.
Fuses – If electrical components in the vehicle are not working, a fuse may have blown.
For more information about changing a fuse, please consult your Owner’s Guide.
Fuel Pump Shut-Off Switch – After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump
shut-off switch may have to be reset. The switch is located in the passenger’s foot well, by the
kick panel. For complete details on resetting your fuel pump shut-off switch, please consult your
Owner’s Guide.
Changing the Tires – If you get a flat tire while driving, do not apply the brake heavily. Instead,
gradually decrease your speed. Hold the steering wheel firmly and slowly move to a safe place
on the side of the road. Your vehicle is equipped with a spare tire. Some spare tires are for limited
service use only. Limited service spare tires are labeled as such.
