Question about Cars & Trucks
Truck seems to skip/miss/at 50 mph/ but when gas pedal is pressed, runs like a dog, no skips/miss/jumps/ is it electrical/transmission,?
Does it do the same parked? Throttle up and does it do the same? Could be fuel, injectors, timing, vac problem, ect.

Had a similar problem and it just ended up being the sensor for the EVAP controls. Stupid I know but it fixed the rough idle. Error code was P1443. Worth a try.

You have a hesitation. A hesitation is cause be either:
1. bad spark plug
2. bad spark plug wire
3. bad or leaky or plugged injector
4. timing is off
5. leaky vacuum hose

you should check the all vacuum hoses starting at the egr valve. if the vaccum hoses are soft they will collapse and stall the van.

Your truck has a A4LD transmission. The older ones had major problems. What i believe is happening with yours is the converter is locking up intermittently. 1st-4th are actual gears for 5th(overdrive) the converter locks. I had the same problem as well as did alot of people I spoke with. I solved it by getting a used A4LD out of a '92 ranger with a 3.0L motor (these transmissions had some upgrades to deal with a number of problems including the one you are talking about.) You will need to swap bell-housings (this requires the pump to be shimmed properly,I paid a shop $100 to install the pump ,with is attached to the back of the bell-housing) There are only 2 kinds of A4LD one for floor shift and 1 for column shift,make sure you get the right one.Good luck.
