engine makes high pitched whine before it idles down in cold weather.
Is there a question here somewhere? How about the year your Ranger was made? How about the current odometer reading?
Could you try to be more clear about what you want? Are you looking for help or sympathy?
Fan clutch ?
ITs a 2000 3.0 Ford ranger 117000 miles. the question is , what could be causing this noise??? Thank You!!
