Does the transmission downshift at the right time? Look for a cracked vacuum line from the pump down to the transmission. If you get a lot of smoke when trying to pass, the injectors could be dirty. Try an injector cleaner in the fuel tank first. If it doesn't clear up then an injector service is likely.

What would cause my 2000 ranger to buck between 45 and 50 mph going up hill


Yea! I'd like to see the answer to this also!
My Ford Explorer 2000 does the same thing going up hill. Especially with a loaded trailer on.
Local mechanic had it for the day and couldn't put his finger on it.
I can alleviate the problem by turning the AUTO Trak knob to 4x4 Hi while driving and the jerking stops.
I'll keep an eye here to see what others think
Cheers

My Ford Transit Diesel 2007 (camper van)intermitantly loses power and the Engine Malfunction light comes on. If I stop, turn off the engine and restart it a few minutes later everything goes like a ch


When the engine is under load it uses more fuel then normal .First replace the fuel filter then check the fuel pressure and flow. the pressure and flow are checked with gauges. For a rough check remove the return pipe from the fuel rail, if fuel is flowing there the fuel system should be ok providing the pressure valve is not stuck open. if there is no flow there the pump may be at fault.

98 ford ranger 4.0L runs very rough when mass air flow sensor is plugged in. runs, but still a little rough but drivable when unplugged. tried new sensor, still the same. any ideas?


did you try cleaning the idle control valve and the egr valve out with carb cleaner.try that before replacing any parts,also if there is any codes in the system those should also lead you in the right direction.

It just stoped running


Depending on how much gas was in the tank and how steep the hill was, the fuel pump most likely started pumping air instead of gas, thereby stalling the engine.

My '95 VX diesal runs rough feels like fuel not getting through,


CHANGING THE FILTER ON FOUR DIESEL WILL only HELP IT-- SOUNDS AS IF YOU HAVE A FUEL SUPPLY OR CONTAMINATION PROBLEM both go through the FILTER so When Changing Filter Try to keep as Full As Possible and Pour into a GLASS Jar let it sit for 10-20 mins. Then you can see the Water (IF ANY) on TOP of the fuel, if you Find Water and Your tank is Low Top Off with DIESEL FUEL this Should Solve your Problem Fuel Filter Must Be REPLACED as Contamints can stow away in it, Bio is Good Both Ecologicly and >>CLEAN will Burn Well > FLUSHING with CLEAN DIESEL FUEL is a good Idea., A VALVE ADJUSTMENT if not performed in a long time or many miles, This can Do Wonders for Your Diesel I hope this helps you with your T L C Have a Good Day and if im Worthy RATE me Accordingly. Thank You, RejakWilson
