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.

SOURCE: Replacement of Spark Plug leads, Distributor cap, rotor for T100

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

What does cap and rotor look like for 1988 Ford Ranger 2.9 with EFI


The cap is on top of the distributor, where your spark plug cables start from. Loosen the screws for the cap and lift it up and away. Directly beneath it is the rotor, on top of the distributor shaft. Most just pull off, but a few are held by a screw.

1994 ford ranger 4x4 hubs make grinding/clicking noise after taken out of four wheel drive


I think yours has the automatic locking hubs that slide over the the rotor hub. If this is the case than what has probably happened is a u-joint has gone bad and wiped out that auto hub.

Be prepared for some sticker shock on those hubs. they are not cheap. The usual fix for this is to replace the front axle ujoints and what ever hub is making the noise, hopefully just one.

My 1994 ford e350 is used for my motor home. It has a slight miss when driving. i replaced the air and fuel filter, also had the cabon cleaned out of the carbs. I have know purchased plugs and wires and...


When it comes time to change the plugs and wires and distributor cap do the cap and rotor first. Remove the old cap with the wires still attached. Put the new cap and rotor on the distributor and transfer the old wires one at a time. Make sure both caps are lined up in regards to mounting position on the distributor. The cap will only mount one way. When you have this done then you can do the plugs and new wires, again one at a time. This way, when you are done the van should start right up and purr like a kitten. Hope this helps.

Hesitation on take off and a miss while goin down the road in my 1994 2.3l ford ranger


Start with a complete tune-up

Plug wires can cause this.

Do spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor cap, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, oil & oil filter.

People often neglect these simple things which could save your motor, maintain it's efficiency plus improve gas mileage.

I replaced my head gaskets on a 85 ford ranger 2.8 v6. When removing my distributor I neglected to mark it.. Now my timing is off. How do I solve this??!


Turn your motor by hand to bring up TDC #1 fire. Set your distributor in place. Remember it will turn with the direction of the cam gear approx 1/2 post when it seats so you need to compensate for this. Set your cap on and follow down #1 post and mark your housing. Remove cap and turn dist until rotor centers on mark. Start and time (remember to remove timing plug) with timing light. Did you remember to use new head bolts?

1987 ford ranger no spark


You may want to check your distributor cap for any signs of unusual wear such as a crack. Even a hair line crack (that is very hard to see) can cause you lose spark. You may want to go ahead and replace both the distributor cap and rotor (a cheap fix) and see whether or not that helps.
