Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab
I am trying to find out what year engine my ford ranger 4.0 is. It reads ROD57761 but I cannot find a decipher for this number. It had been replaced before I bought the truck and when the frame went on the vehicle I removed the engine. Now I am not sure what it will fit due to some changes over the years depending on the manufacture year.

the open pipe that you took the hose off of is the thermostat housing, you will need to remove this to reveal the thermostat, make sure you use a new gasket with sealant when reinstalling thermostat housing to prevent leaks and dont over tighten the bolts,run both bolts down as far as you can before final tightning

P0141 is for an open or short in the heater circuit of bank 1(passenger side) rear O2 sensor(the one after the catayltic converter). This code will set when the computer runs the heated oxygen sensor monitor which is basically a program kinda like an anitvirus scan on your home PC.
During testing, the HO2S heaters are checked for opens/shorts and excessive current draw. The code will set when current draw exceeds a maximum calibrated limit(3amps) or falls below a minimum calibrated limit(0.220 amps for NKT sensor and 0.400 amps for bosch sensor) and/or an open or short is detected.
Here are the possible causes for this:
·Short to VPWR in harness or HO2S
·Water in harness connector
·Open VPWR or GND circuit
·Low battery voltage
·Poor electrical connections from PCM to HO2S sensor
Now the reason I ask what the codes were is that may help in determining what is wrong. If the other codes you had were also O2 heater cicuit codes example P0135, P0155, P0161 then you may need to be looking at something other than the O2's themself and maybe more toward a blown fuse no. 24 (15amp) in the under hood fuse box,wiring harness problem on the voltage side since all four share this one or a bad PCM.

SOURCE: i have '06 ford ranger,
Hi! Here are the basic common Ideas that might solve your problem. Every engine requires four basic ingredients to start: sufficient cranking speed, good compression, adequate ignition voltage (with correct timing) and fuel (a relatively rich air/fuel mixture initially). So any time an engine fails to start, you can assume it lacks one of these four essential ingredients. But which one? To find you, you need to analyze the situation. If the engine won't crank, you are probably dealing with a starter or battery problem. Has the starter been acting up? (unusual noises, slow cranking, etc.). Is this the first time the engine has failed to crank or start, or has it happened before? Have the starter, battery or battery cables been replaced recently? Might be a defective part. Has the battery been running down? Might be a charging problem. Have there been any other electrical problems? The answers to these questions should shed some light on what might be causing the problem. If an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. Was it running fine but quit suddenly? The most likely causes here would be a failed fuel pump, ignition module or broken overhead cam timing belt or compresor pully . This problem most likely begins when the car has NO (MAFS) Mass Air Flow System. Engine failure problem are also cause when the car have a vacuum leak somewhere on the Ignition system. But before you go beyond, check the basic maitainance which that you might have a burnedout fuses or relay and most of the Ford have an Intel switch also know as a fuel control switch it might have trip. This might cause the fuel stop flowing to the gas line.Check it. If you see that the red circle is up, Reset it by pressing it down, then insert the key into the ignition and turn it into ON position. To find out if you have a gas flowing into the gas line, you wil hear a click or any small sound when the key is turn into ON position. if there is no click sound, you may also try the ON position again by pressing the gas peddal clutch for 5sec then turn the ignition key into OFF position. this will put the pressure into the gas line.The Intel switch is also located by the front passenger right foot corner under the dash board. Best of luck.
Glad to help.

it is the idle circuit. It sounds plugged. The idle screw adjusts the amount of air to be mixed with the fuel in the idle circuit. Try remvoing the 2 screws, should have tiny springs behind them, lowe on the carb, by the front 2 barrels. Count the number of turns to gently screw in until you hit the stop. Then remove them, spray carb cleaner in the holes. Reinstall the screws in the same place. To the stop, then back off the same number of turns.
A carb works with 5 circuits:
