Started running bad when I turned on the heater


misfire can be caused by a few things. weak spark, low fuel pressure, to much fuel, vaccum leak. a simple check on this engine is to remove vaccum line from fuel pressure regulator, on fuel rail, driver side of engine. if you crank engine, and fuel leaks out vaccum port on regulator, its ruptured and causing rich fuel mixture. try that and let me know.

1998 ford ranger ac only works below 45 mph blows hot at higher


I would say that this problem is caused be a vaccum leak. Ford was known for using vaccum in their heat/ac systems....and you loose vaccum as you press the accellerator.

I had this issue with a Grand Marquis....and was a pain to find the leak.

You really need to look over all the vaccum lines that run under the dash.

2002 mpv; changed 02 sensors; engine vibrating when turned on; rough idle when in park or stopped; runs ok when accelerating. what could this be?


posibly he has a vaccum leak and somesome saw the o2 rading or the fuel trims. can you hear hissing sounds from the engine area when it's running? on the back of the intake manifold there is a hose that gets soaked with oil and leaks. you may have more than one problem. the IAC valve which is on top of the throttle body may be deffective.
