so this 'chip' can be held in your hand
as opposed to a 'SuperChip' which is a hand held tuner and tune info is downloaded via a cable, that is later disconnected; thus nothing you can physically remove.

Jarhizzy, where you from???

if there is no chip, there will be a small plastic cap, or nothing at all

Joey, pre 1996 Cars and trucks had OBD I units. 96 and new (such as your 150) have OBD II systems. The hand held tuners only work on OBD II systems... I would love to have one for my 150 but I am stuck with a chip.

<img src="http://www.fordtruckclub.net/forum/photopost/files/5/3/0/chip.jpg" alt="Hypertech 4.0l Proformance Chip" />
I read up on it. This is all it says :

"Part #640721, 1994 Ranger 4.0 Manual Transmission
•Premium Octane "

Not sure If i would put money out for this but since i got it included i guess it is a bonus.

Another Pittsburgh guy! nice

Have you tried removing that chip to see if maybe there's something going on with it? I'm not too familiar with those types of chips....but I wouldn't imagine it would hurt anything to just remove it to see.

"premium octane" kinda clues me in that its a 'performance chip'
even though you did'nt know that, if your not useing 91 or better I suggest you start
it has something to do with them pistons going up and down
and that computer being fooled by that 'chip'

on that trans. leak; there should be an access plate or plug so you can see the flywheel
just behind where the leak is, see if you can look in there with a flashlite you may not see the point of origin but if fluid is slung around everywhere could be it's on the clutch also
on that manual trans. I would suspect a leaking front seal

Glade to not be here alone.
jsoko: Are you talking about the fill plug? Look threw the fill plug? I was putting in 89 because that is what the guy was running. From now on ill run 91. The truck is good on gas so Im not worried about putting the extra cash out for it. Now if I had to put 91 in my 75' caddy....different story.

I planed on pulling the trans out anyway because i felt the clutch slipping so to fix the seal or the clutch, it has to come out.

My other problem:
Front diff is leaking oil pretty bad. I noticed a puddle after i parked it and i sall it stop dripping. figured it was all out. popped open the fill plug and it was bone dry. so i cleaned up the area and added some to see if I can make sure it is the diff instead of a seal by the axle(because I noticed oil there too). I placed a little over a quart in an not even 1 hour later it was all out. I know how to change the seal on the rear diff and I assume it is the same. But one problem, On the front end of it(facing the front of the truck) is the screws and it seems to be all connected. Unlike the back diff, just a single plate. The front goes the whole width of the truck. Not sure what I have to do to take it off but i think theres alot to do. Ill get a picture up to show you what I mean.

Thanks Everybody for the help!

Update:
Pictures are from Cell, sorry for quality.

Front Diff Whole:
