I have a 2003 ford ranger xlt 5 speed with 90,000 miles. When i take off in 1st it like sputters, then smooths out, same thing 2nd and 3rd. Have changed the plugs, wires, gas filter, injector cleaner...


It could very well be the coil pack.

I have the EXACT same problem with my 2000 Ranger.

Have changed the exact same things you have and the closest thing that helped at all was the wires\plugs.

I have researched this on the truck forums and many of these issues are being solved by the coil packs... (but not all)

2005 Cavalier misfiring on 2 cylinders, dumping fuel


Spark plugs get there voltage from the ignition coil packs, more then likely you have a bad coil pack or coil pack boot, pull one coil pack or spark plug wire or boot at a time, if you see a drop in rpm, that one is good, if no drop bad coil pack.

96 grand prix se engine problems


Your problem may be a faulty (shorted) ignition coil housing assembly (the white plastic cover housing the coils its bolted to the aluminum cover) change that along with the spark plug boots ( the boots are optional but I recommend it) that should get your Grand Prix running smooth. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help

99 cavalier engine


I just changed a 2.4 in my 96. I pulled the whole thing because I coudn't get at the converter to flywheel bolts. After reading further, I saw information to pull the trans out through the drivers wheel well without the engine. They removed the starter to access the flywheel bolts to the converter.
I haven't tried it but it would make sense and it does make it a lot easier. Without the trans attached, you wouldn't need to remove the master cylinder or beat the sh-t out of the battery tray to get the think out.
