I drive down the road on a cold day with the wind blowing and when i come to a spot where snow is blowing across the road it will miss fire. This only happens in blowing snow, never while driving in the rain or even in slushy conditions.

Re: 2004 Ford Ranger XLT miss fires in blowing snow
Sounds like you have a bad spark plug wire. Start the vehicle, then take a squirt bottle of water and spray around the plug wires. You should find it. It'll look like static around the bad one. Also you should get the misfire. You'll probably find a worn area on the wire. Best wishes to you.

If it does nothing I'm thinking is a power problem... start by checking the cables make sure they sre conected good Because of the snow I'd start down at the starter if it shorted fron the snow there is prob a burnt wire down there
4L only to be used in extreme condtions N 4H for off road/snow/ice 2H - normal driving
when switching to 4H vehicle must be stationary, as when changing from 4H to 4L but it is possible to change from 4H back to 2H while in motion. when 4wd is engaged a lamp will illuminate on dials telling that the hubs are free wheeling, when changing back to 2H you must press corresponding switch to dis-engage this function
Ford 2004 6.0, Driving down road seams like when it starts warming up it starts Missing or accelerating,jerking,as long as you keep the acceleration it seems to work as soon as you level it out it starts missing,even dies at stoping sometimes...Changed fuel filter, put fuel additive in tank still missing,HELP
if the pump has been changed twice its probally not the pump. could be the fuel pressure regulator. the computer will still throw a fuel code but in order to really diagnose the problem they would have to test the fuel pressure.
Have you or the dealers checked the plug wires? Often when there is high humidty weak plug wires can cause the engine to miss and this is difficult to diagnose in a shop environment. Modern ignition systems have very high voltage and also worn plugs can cause the voltage to spike. This would let the weak plug wires lose the voltage and cause the engine to miss.
