2015 Ranger Shifting and Idling problems
I have the same problems where I have to turn my machine off to shift,
And when I come to a stop, the machine stalls out.
I do have some differences from the other posts I have read in the forum, so I hope I can use the same techniques to fix the issues.
I realize this is part of the diesel forum, but cannot find many threads that relate as closely to my issues. Also, I have not yet seen posts with any 2015 units yet.
I bought a brand new 2015 900 XP. There has been the shifting issue since I bought it. Upon purchase I was told the factory warranty only lasted 6-months. An extended 1-year warranty beyond that was around $2,500. Almost like someone knew my machine would have issues but raised the extended price so much I couldn't buy it.
At the time, the dealer told me as I have seen in other posts that "the shifter will loosen up with use". I was also told I may need to "rock the machine back and forth occasionally" It took about two months after I brought it home progressively getting worse until the point Where I have turn it off to shift.
About that time it started stalling out periodiodically when I came to a stop. Now it does it every time.
- I will look into cleaning the throttle body under the air intake as mentioned in one post
- I will look into cleaning the TBAD sensor as one person suggested (if the XP model is typical of the diesel)
I currently have one question that I have not yet seen an answer for. How do I adjust the idle speed?? (Perhaps turning that down will fix it all...?)
Any other other suggestions would be appreciated.
