ford ranger engine reliabilty
hey i have a 1998 ford ranger with 138,000 miles on it and the guy who owned it before only drove it to work and has never been beat on like floored or did a burnout. it was only driven to and from work. the guy who owned it before me was my uncle and took really good care of it. but its my first truck and i like to show off sometimes u know like when people are passing u and u speed up or when u pull out of some were u do a burnout a little. can i blow my engine just messing around a little or blow my tranny doing that just wondering any answers would help very good truck and it runs amazing but i cant let my engine or tranny drop out on me so thats y i am wondering the truck has been servised like normal oil changed EVERY 3,000 miles never missed a tune up or service. if the engine is not use to it and i do it can i brake something expensive thanks, sorry for the long post. just have a lot of questions and no one to answer them so i thought id give this a try thanks
