Depending on how much gas was in the tank and how steep the hill was, the fuel pump most likely started pumping air instead of gas, thereby stalling the engine.

My 2003 ranger 2.3 is idoling rough and sounds like its backfiring in side the engine seems to run fine when i accelerate


Could be that your cat is clogged up,the way to check is to remove and look in both ends,mine clogged up and caused my head gasket to blow between cylinder 3 and 4 on my 85 Nissan 720,part of the inside came apart and was blocking the air flow,causing my exhaust plugs to blister.

Going up hill lack of power and smoke pulled over then started to go again didnt do it again on level ground what it might be


It will lack lots of power going up hill, especially if its a really steep one and you keep it in drive. Make sure you downshift to second, or fist if its really steep.

My 2002 S40 shakes when the car goes up a steep hill and smooths out when the road levels.


Most up hill problems are Ignition related,such as
individual cylinder coils or a coil pack, depending on
what your car has.

You may or may not have a check light on the dash

A more violent & more sudden, somewhat similar lack
of up hill performance ,would be the EGR Valve.

If you never had any trans issues since the car was new,
& I don't think that is the case with the mostly under load
& up hill issues,I would change the trans fluid again,not
have it flushed,just change it & add,LUBGARD in the RED
BOTTLE,no other product or brand.

I will assume your spark plugs have been in the motor less
than 3 years or 60,000 miles

Also not really related but effects fuel trim or adjustment,is the
front O2 Sensors,the ones closest to the motor before the
converter. Change them at 100,000 miles.

Check fuel pressure with a gauge. I like to go on a road test
with the gauge taped or tied to the windshield or wiper arm.

Any kind of vacuum leak will cause a problem

Make sure the air filter cover is on correctly

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new


Of coarse it does. The battery was probably okey. The Alternator has nothing to do, with starting a vehicle,but the solenoid on the starter does.
Pull the starter and put on a new solenoid.

How fast should i go in 4wd low


Your no going too fast for sure. This gear is designed to crawl...also known as a granny gear. You should never have to use this LOW gear, unless your climbing a steep hill, or severly stuck is sugar sand.

My ranger run's fine on level but on hill's


you got head gasket problems, white smoke is an indication of water turning to steam, probably doing uphill because the engine is under greater load.i think the knocking is pre ignition, carry out an engine compression test to verify your head gaskets integrity
