    A buddy of mines has a 93 ranger, auto with 3.0 motor. It starts up without issues but once we put it in gear it shuts down. A trans guy told us that it is the torque convertor. Can this be true or would it be a sensor. It doesn't kick off a check engine light or anything, any suggestions?

    Unless the aforementioned '93 Ranger has a 5.0 swapped into it, I have no clue why you posted this in 5.0 Tech. :crazy: Just for future reference, there's an "Other Auto Tech" forum on Stangnet that you may wish to try. Mods will probably move this thread there shortly.

    Any chance it could be some other issue not related to the transmission? Not getting enough fuel when placed under a load, perhaps? :shrug:

    Thanks for the help guys. Its been awhile since I've been on here and I didn't know about the new section. Its getting good fuel so I don't believe thats the issue. I'm wondering if it could be a sensor like possibly the TPS.

    I put it up on jack stands and put it gear, still shut down. Is there any sensors that would make this happen. Like the TPS or O2 sensors?
