Question about 2006 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

My 2006 Ranger with a 3.0 has a slight miss at idle and a slight surge at 55mph. When hooking a timing light to it ,it seems to be firing irratically when I increase the idle speed a little . There is no check engine light on.Could this be a problem with a cam sensor ,coil pack,or something else?

Audi A3 2.0TDi Sport 2006 runs fine on idle when cold but has a slight misfire when hot, I have changed the fuel, air and oil filters, where should I look next?


Diesels can idle rough, if no check engine light I wouldn't worry. Check the injectors, vw diesels have the injectors work loose allot

2002 ford ranger missing out when ac is running


Could be a long list of choices.
Nothing special happens when the ac is on other than the extra load on the engine.
You probably have a slight miss-fire most of the time and the ac makes it worse.
A miss-fire could be a faulty spark plug, wire, coil pack, or injector among other things.
Is the check engine light on ?

Is there fuel pump driver module the 2006 ford ranger


The fuel pump driver module slows the pump near idle speed to lessen humming from the pump, it would not likely be your problem. Have a dealer run the engine surging pinpoint tests in the factory service manual to see what is going on.

1996 chevy k1500 runs when idleing slight miss drives down the road fine but when comming to a stop it dies


When the light flashes it means a cylinder misfire, so you must check everything, spark, (first) injector fuel delivery intake manifold vacuum leaks and compression if not other problem accounts for the misfire.

I have a '03 Toyota Celica GT-S with a annoying mis-fire. Started small by replacing all spark plugs - nothing. Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked...


Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked compression which check out good and put the computer on. Computer read mis-fire on cylinder 1, and then multiple misfire (like it would jump around). We went ahead and replaced the fuel injector on cylnder 1 - did not solve problem as when we hook the computer up, misfire seemed tp stay at idle and seem better when running high RMP, but check engine light is on as it never went away. Went ahead and replaced the coil pack to cylinder 1 - nothing. what am i missing?

I am having a problem with my 98 mazda protege, 1.8l car. When i put it in drive, it takes about 2 or 3 seconds most times to really accelerate and when i am at a stop, it idles irratically, fluctuating...


Check the wheels and see if the drums are not tight. and also the erratic Idling Could be from your Torque converter Clutch Solenoid that doesn't work properly and if the Solenoid gets totally bad then your car will be stalling.all Well i can say is Check your transmission fluid level and your brakes. Good luck

Truck not firing properly front coil pack not firing at all.


if this truck has an o2 sensor i would replace that and also make sure the cat-converter is not plugged,this would give you your powerloss and egr code,next is your coil,this may be caused by the computer or your crank sensor,look at the tone ring that the crank sensor uses and make sure its not missing teeth or broken,also check all your fuses.
