Hesitation after switching frm non detergent fuel to a detergent

I switched my fuel from a non detergent fuel to a detergent fuel and began experiencing issues with power and hesitation. I beleive the issue may be a plugged fuel filter or injectors. Where is the fuel filter located on a 1992 Ford Ranger EXT with a 4.0 liter V-6?

Thank you.

The fuel filter is on the inside of the frame rail just aft of the driver under the truck. You may need a little spring clip release tool to get the lines off the filter, any parts store like NAPA or Autozone should have the tool, very cheap, about $6 US

Where is fuel cut off switch,1984 nissan 300zx non turbo

Why would it have a switch? Fuel cut off switches are found on race cars. The closest thing you probably have is a fuel pump relay. As for the location of that, this thread is good:

MIL light is on...code P2181 I replaced Coolant & Thermostat...thinking of replacing Fuel Cap & CTS. Think i should replace fuelpump? The car has began to have a slight hesitation every now 7...

Fuel cap has nothing to do with this code. you are going in the right direction, changing the thermostat and coolant was good now i would replace the coolant temp sensor as you listed you were going to do. good day.

Miss fire, hesitation, falls flat when accelerating also throws a 453 code

Sounds like fuel tank pressure switch on or near fuelpump is shorted. Locate switch,disconnect power connector to it. If it is shorted the vehicle will run ok but check engine light will be on. Will need to be replaced.

2004 Pontiac Aztek. The fuel gauge reads beyond full. Way beyond. In addition, it has a slight hesitation when taking off. It began hesitating first, then about two weeks later the gas gauge began reading...

The instrument cluster in these GM vehicles have stepper motors that control the gauges. It probably is the stepper motor for the fuel gauge going bad. This should have nothing to do with your hesitation, which could be anything from an O2 sensor to a good tune up.

My 93 plym voyager, 3.0 has a hesitation when

if your having cold engine start hesitation,you need to check the engine temp switch,it tells the computer how cold it is,so the engine can adjust to a rich start and not a lean one.if the switch is faulty and the computer is being told it is 80degrees,you will not get a rich mixture like no choke at all

Hesitation when accelerating, mostly between 20-30mph,

the funny thing is , we have had this problem also , the check engine lite came on , said downstream 02 sensor bad. replaced it. still had hesitation. change plugs and wires. still had hesitation, replaced fuel pump/fuel filter/fuel screen assembly, and the S.O.B. still has this problem. im running out of ideas except that i have run into other posts that say the crank position sensor , or the computer itself could be the culprit... all my switches and and other components seem to be working fine, though it makes me wonder also if tha cam sensor could also be going bad....

Low idle and hesitation when driving

i had a similar problem, with a different car though, and it turned out that the seals in the fuel pumps had been eaten away by the ethanol in the fuel i was using. i had the fuel pumps replaced as well as the filter and switched to a different fuel that contained no ethanol and i haven't had a problem since.
