If the idle speed is not steady, you could have a sticking idle speed control valve, or a dirty throttle body.

SOURCE: Bucking on Hard Acceleration

You best bet would be to look for the vacuum diagram and just take a day to make sure all of the lines to the engine and tranny are all correct. If its not it and while bucking the car feels like its going to turn off on you then it maybe a fuel delivery problem.

SOURCE: bucking while idling

Have the upper and lower intake manifold checked. It needs to be a cold start. 2000's are notorious for having the gaskets crack and leak. This may be causing the engine to idle rough at start-up ans somewhat disappear after warming. Winter starts can shake the steering wheel!

P.s. I had it fixed at 65,000 miles (warranty), and am having it fixed again at $120,000 miles.

Is your ignition coil good ? Could have replaced that when you had it apart for intake gaskets. Had to do the same to mine. No issues anymore.

I'm having the same problem with my 90 2.3L Ranger. I replaced the EGR Valve back in August and the truck ran fine (but the gas mileage was bad) until late December . I knew it needed an O2 Sensor back in August but didn't replace it until last Saturday along with the Idle Air Control Valve, Plugs and Wires. The truck ran fine for a couple minutes then started running like a VW bug! My code reader is now throwing out an EGR failure code, so I guess i'll take the 4 month EGR back and get a new one, and see what that does!_549.jpg

You haven't had vapor lock in over 25 years with fuel injection

What exactly defines bad gas,that never was the cause of

should have been some time ago

Alot of things can cause this, even a spark plug. but I would be looking at maybe a coil or ignition module issue or a weak fuel pump that is on its way out. Or maybe even a throttle position sensor. Noone can say forsure without driving it themselves and testing based on what they felt.

If its time for a tuneup I would do the plugs and wires., If you dont suspect the tuneup as being the problem I would replace the ignition module that is located in the cover that is on top of the engine covering the sparkplugs. Its a easy job. Its attached to the under side of the cover. I have seen this type of symptom several times with this car and the module is usually the culprit when everything else checks out ok.

Sounds like a dead short on a low amp cicuit. If it doesn't buck when you don't use the turn signals. Then it is a short. this could interfere with the electric gas pump. If the two problems are unrelated, confirm firing order of the spark plugs and check s/p leads.

Hit the gas and get a bucking, bucking and more bucking.

There's alot that can cause this problem. Check battery cables and clean. Drive to autoparts place for free diagnostic. It could be a throttle position sensor, EGR valve, bad gas, bad coil, bad plug wires. Just to name a few. Hopefully the diagnostic test will pinpoint it.
