Question about Ford Ranger
Replaced sycroniser and cam sensor
Can you be more specific, like engine size, transmission type, vehicle mileage, does the engine rpm's fall or flicker when start to "jump and jerk", does it keep doing it above that speed or stops beyond it. I am trying to determine if it is an engine or transmission problem. But I need details.

If you are experiencing a "shimmy" that only occurs at a certain speed, I'd suspect a tire balance issue. If it were in the alignment, the problem would manifest itself at all speeds not just at 60 mph. There's a chance that a wheel weight fell off or the tires have uneven wear. If you do have uneven wear on the tires, then you may worn front end parts that need to be dealt with. Incorrect tire pressure can cause uneven wear as well. Hope this helps.

these jeeps did have a small problem with the tp sensor. i would also have the back pressure of the exhaust checked to see if you have a catalytic converter choked up.

Could be fuel or electrical related. Since you may not know the history, this may take a while.
Any amount of smoke from exhaust? White, Blue, Black?
Start with most obvious and inexpensive:
1. Fuel filer clogged (replace fuel filter).
2. Could be the ECM (Electronic Control Module). It controls the ignition spark timing.
A few other things... consider other expert solutions...
