I just purchase a 1999 RANGER XLT 4x4 5 speed automatic with 104 k miles.
I need a little help understanding the two (2) what I think are problems… and what to do about them.

1) When I start from a dead stop the motor will race (just a little) then the I feel the transmission engage and after that it shifts ok.
2) When rolling down the road I hear a low thump thump… its not loud and thump-thump is based on speed

Any Suggestions would appreciated. I love it and would like to get another 100K out of this old girl.

Kind Regards

Never had those kind of problems with my Ranger (also a 99 XLT 4x4 supercab, 4 doors) But it almost sounds like the transmission and possibly the front differential is the source of the two problems.
Enjoy your ride, I finally sold mine after 256K miles and lot's of smiles in the brush!!!
