In this video, we're going to be working on our 2001 Ford Ranger 4.0-liter V6. We're going to show you how to remove and reinstall the intake tube.

Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 7mm socket, ratchet, Phillips screwdriver, flat blade screwdriver

It's common for intake boots to crack and allow an unmetered air flow into the motor, which can create a lean condition and check engine lights, as well as some rough running or an odd idle. This often happens in between these little accordion folds here. When you have it removed, be sure to flex it around and check for any dry rotting or cracking in those and all the other areas of the intake tube.

We're going to remove this cover over the throttle body. Use a small Phillips head screwdriver to remove these two screws and a 7 millimeter socket and ratchet for the bolt in the back. Remove the cover from the intake.

We're going to use a flat blade screwdriver to loosen these two screw-type clamps on our intake tube. We'll then wiggle the tube off of the MAF sensor and the throttle body, and remove it from the vehicle. You'll also have to remove this breather line from the back, so remove the intake tube from the throttle body and the MAF. Pull it straight off the breather and remove it from the vehicle.

Reinstall the breather line in both ends of the intake tube to the throttle body and the air box. Tighten down the clamps with a flat blade screwdriver. Reinstall the engine cover, and we'll tighten down the front two screws with a Phillips head screwdriver and the rear with a 7 millimeter socket. Reconnect the negative terminal, and tighten the clamp back up. 10 millimeter socket and ratchet or a wrench. Ensure your connection is tight, and you're ready to go.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
