When I'm driving down the road, holding the gas pedal in a steady position, the truck starts to sputter and ****. I have changed the fuel filter and the air filter is clean. The truck does have 197000 miles. What is suggested? Change the plugs and plug wires?
John, I will save you some money, I just took my 94 ranger with the same problem to the dealer and they fixed it. They replaced the ignition sensor and the fuel pump sensor and a O2 sensor. The ignition and fuel pump sensor is in a fuse box right behind the battery. They are a 1 in. black pull out cubes. Ask a parts store which ones they are. Numbers are stamped on the cube.

There are many possibilities. It could even be that it is out of gas. If unknown, take it to an auto shop to have it looked at. and i think you can do it by yourself , but you need a diagnostic tools. if you want to buy one you can click here: allobd2.com
On passenger side, inside of cab there is a fuel inertia switch mounted
on the firewall by where feet go. There is a button underneath, push it.
This will reset switch. Truck should get fuel now and start. These
switches get weak and if passenger kicks it truck will shut down. Will
still turn over but not start.
Is there somthing hitting the gas pedal, like the floor mat? Or maybe something under the dash came loose and is getting caught under the brake pedal and pushing on the gas. Put the shifter in neutral if you get into a situation where going to hit something or someone. The engine has a rev limiter, to prevent it from over reving.
The clutch has rusted to the flywheel drive the truck down the road you will have to start it in gear (1st) while driving push the clucth pedal to the floor and keep pushing up and down on the gas pedal to get the truck to rock forwards and backward the clutch should brake loose.
