Question about Ford Ranger
Sometimes this is called an Exhaust chirp. This can happen where the main exhaust pipe meets the exhaust manifold. There can be a part called an exhaust donut, which is in between the manifold and the catalytic pipe.
Some models have a smaller pipe coming from the catalytic pipes and approaching the Pollution equipment. Some of these pipes have a flexible joint which rusts and leaks causing a chirping noise.

Replace the coil. It is shorted out. I have changed quite a few coils for the exact same symptom.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

SOURCE: Hesitation problem
try cleaning the inside of the MAF sensor and do the following procedure as well.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

I reccommend putting WD40 or CRC on the connections to stop them corroding over time. You also want to make sure the Distributor Cap gasket seals well to keep out water. last make sure you don't get the leads mixed up, best to replace them one at a time. cheers
