Motor is good...plugs get fouled. When it starts to show oil on it or is another color other than a tan look, then you have problems....go for it! They are a great outdoors type vehicle with a soft ride!

I have a 1983 Ford ranger with a 2.3 4 cylinder, yesterday, after replacing a lot of parts, it finally was running great--no miss or rough idle. Until I revved up the engine. Then it started running...


Hello, If this is a push rod engine I had an identical problem with an engine in my 1988-1989 Jeep Wagoneer. It was a Buick V-8 and behaved exactly like your Ford engine.

On my engine it was weak valve springs. You could take your thumb and push on the valve spring while the engine idled and the engine would miss out. Turn it off and start it up and it would idle smoothly, rev it up and let off the gas and it would miss out and shake. You could also have hydraulic lifters (check your model) and they could behave like this. At idle the lifters would pump up, but the lifters may not refill fast enough to work the valves smoothly.

If you have hydraulic lifters they must be centered in their travel to pump correctly. Even if you have solid lifters the valve adjustment can affect engine performance.

I have a 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that seems to be losing oil pressure then dying. I just changed the oil and the levels are fine. Not sure where to start... any ideas?


if this just started when you changed the oil and filter,then it might be the filter,it did it in my 89 jeep so i changed the filter to another brand and my oil pressure came back to normal.so i would recomend and stp or k&n or wix filter.if that doesnt then start looking at the oil pressure sensor and wire lead.you could also use a mechanical oil pressure guage and check it that way to.

Cylinder 4 misfire, someone said plugs? if so what type or brand is recommended. Idles rough/and stutters-shutters esp a speed up to 50mph.


I use Bosch platinum plugs in my Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I recommend nothing less than double platinum. Bosch makes a platinum plug with 4 electrodes - these are great because you don't have to set the gap on them. I have an 8 cylinder and these plugs aren't exactly cheap, but, with these rising gas prices, they DO make a difference in performance and mileage. Hope this helps!!

You got the ignition cover, what you need to do an cylinder compression test and also check your injector for voltage while engine running hook test light to battery pos on neg and neg on pos, at injector harness check for pulsation, if you have pulsation elec. system ok, if good compression bad injector.if bad compression piston ring's or valve's.
