If it has been awhile since the belt was changed it may be a good idea to change it and get a timing light and check the timing also make sure the beads in the catalytic converter is not releasing and starting to plug up the exhaust system

Engine rough idles and hesitate on take off after engine has reached normal operating temp.


Check the Catalytic Converter. When they start becoming plugged the insides expand as they heat up causing engine to act as if it is running out of fuel.

do u have a check engine light coming on? if not the plugs are not the problem a miss will trigger a check engine/service engine soon light, most likely you have a dirty automatic idle speed control motor.

96 Ranger, "Popping" coming from engine compartment


Possibly you have a leaky or cracked exhaust manifold. After the engine heats the metal expands and creates a larger gap. As the engine speeds up the engine noise overcomes the exhaust leak noise and you don't really notice it much until the vehicle gets in to a hard pull or comes to and idle.
