Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab
IF I HIT A BUMP IN ROAD IT STOPS A BIG BUMP THEN IT RUNS GREAT INSTALLED NEW PVC - FUEL FILTER -
If its a five speed I can safely assume its not an automatic
good that makes it a bit easier
so you have a manual trans that makes the truck miss
that hardly seems possible
but try this
next time it does this keep your foot at same point on throttle(not floored)
and push in on clutch
does engine die
or does truck smooth out
if it dies you have an ign problem on engine
if it smooths out you have a gear case/transfer case or clutch problem
if it turns out to be the engine
ck the distributor cap for cracks
place strong light bulb inside cap ( remove it first) no need to remove all the wires
look for light on outside of cap
I had a guy bring me a 05 ranger that did all sorts of weird stuff
like not running if it was raining outside
starts right up but ran rough so bad you could not even get it in gear
and yep you guessed it the distributor cap was broke
(so bad you could see spark comming out the side )
15 bucks for a cap
