Playing with chips then pulling a load over a distance would be asking for trouble . I suggest that you take the car and the chips to a speed shop that has a chassis dyno and have the ECM set properly to give maximum power and economy.. IT may cost a few dollars but that will be cheap compared to engine troubles on a trip.

check your fuel pressure,if not right before you go buy new fuel pump,try new fuel filter
2- take the vacuum line to fuel pressure regulator .if it is wet with gas,the diaphragm is ruptured need new regulator
3- have exhaust shop check you cat convertor,also if you recently have head gasket problem,some of those anti freeze is burned by engine and ran through your cat convertor causes it partially plugged,
4- A bad throttle position sensor could be another cadidate
5- bad or old ignition coil could be also the reason,as it could not produce enough juice on higher R.P.M

I lost the keys to my 1999 ford ranger xlt. i want to know how i can bypass the chip in the key that tells the alarm that its ok for the truck to start. need my work vehicle please help anyone. thanx

Technically you can't. The computer will not power up the coil and injectors without that chip. You can add a new chip as long as you have the old one, but it takes a dealer or really good locksmith to cut a new key with the original chip, or reprogram the system for a new key.

Did you have a new key cut to fit the new lock that also matches the chip in the old key for the computer ?

Keyless entry for my 2005 Colorado does not unlock the doors or disarm the alarm. The second one does not either, but the battery was replaced in my primary one anyway.

You may need to reprogram them or the primary may be bad, try replacing the battery in the second controler and see if that works, if that one works then something is wrong with the first one, if the second one doesnt work after the new battery then you may need them reprogramed . if reprograming doesnt work then theres a problem with the keyless entery module, there are instrucation in your manually on how to program remotes.

I just had my keyless entry transmitters and key box replaced and reprogrammed and it still won't work. What do I need to do now??????

Take it back to the installer. Those vehicles need a Tech 2 dealer scan tool to have the remotes reprogrammed. Hopefully you took it to a dealer and they should repair it at no charge (if the parts are still under warranty)

No chip in the key

There is a  security resistor on the key and your going to have to get a new key from GM dealer and  it will come programmed right from the dealer. Once you have the new pass lock keys, your going to have to reprogram the Cars ECM to recognize the new keys and takes about 30 min. You can call a lock smith to come to you and he can cut new pass lock keys and reprogram the car and keys together where you are so you don't have to pay for the tow to the dealer. Good luck and hope this helps.
