Just use a pliers and squeeze the metal prong inside plug wire. the wires are all one size, sometimes the power is so great, it pushes the wire off. So, just squeeze the metal prong inside plug wire and it will give you a tighter fit.

If your truck is bogging, it may be due to dirty fuel filter, dirty air filter, or clogged exhaust.

Engine cuts out while driving. does not completely stall all the time. Mostly just bogs down to no power. No codes. red spark at coil to distributor. Fuel pressure within spec. Vacuum within spec.

Try a new coil. Red spark is not good, you need a blue snapping spark. If not the coil, better have the ignition analyzed. Possibly a bad ignition module.

Running rough

Sounds like it may be a fuel problem. Have you changed the fuel filter recently ?

1988 ford ranger 4 speed v6 problems keeping it running.

Fuel filter? There's also a filter on the suction intake inside the gas tank, it can get plugged up. I'd definitely try the filter if you haven't. Good luck. Have you checked the fuel psi coming from the tank? If it's fuel injection, it should be pretty high, 55 - 60 psi. Let me know if I can help.

Grinding when in reverse and tries bogging down at lights

stop shifting so hard. your reverse gear is the same exact gear as your first, so if you shift hard and grind that gear a little then reverse will be harder to get into. you probably need your transmission rebuilt the harder your engine has to work the more its going to bogg down
