    hi First I'd like to thank you for your time. (Thank You)Ok yes it is a 3.o lit engine and we have had the arrow in every position it runs the worst in the position you stated we have fallowed instructions on the tool We have the ford (haynes) repair manual we have obd11 code reader and the service manual for the code reader in the service manual it states the position of the electrode should be marked when removed and placeced in the same place as I stated before this moter did not have a sensor ?? Does the matter ? After we installed moter we use assembly and sensor from prev. motor it ran great for about 6 mo. then it began to miss mostly when cold and when passing

    prob.now it is time to smog and with mil lite on thats not going to pass?

Please get a brand new sensor.

New parts are better than used/ old parts.

What usually happens on these 3.0 liter engines is the shaft that holds the cam sensor, the bearing starts to bind up .This spins like the old distributors with a magnet attached inside to create a signal from the cam sensor .the shaft is a dealer item only .Make sure when you replace it that you mark the position of the housing and cam sensor because this also will through the engine light on for a cam sensor code.

    if this is a 3.0 ltr it needs to be at top dead center of cylinder one,when you put the syncronizer down in the engine with the tool installed the arrow on the tool should be pointing about 40 degrees of the center line of the engine towards the passenger side.let me know what size engine it is please

What causes the engine to miss fire on #2 cylinder?


If you shoot me your year I might have the info you need. And - depending on your year - the 94ish years had TWO coil packs for the 4 cylinder - 8 plug wires basically. When any of the leads of either of those coil packs goes out - youre going to experience a miss condition. If it's the v6 - you've got a cam sensor that can cause that type of action - and have you checked your throttle positioning sensor? If that goes out - the ecu will get mixed signals and can act like that as well. If you can tell me the year I'll see if I got the info you need. All the best.

My story starts when I bought a 97 ranger with a bad clutch. installed new clutch assy. Master and slave....All good. Started driving the truck and about every 5th drive cycle this truck will Huck and buck...


it could be a map or maf sensor (don't know which you've got, but either can create that problem). before you say "it doesn't have those codes", I have seen many cars with bad map or maf sensors that didn't have codes associated with them, and ford is not a code-rich brand, and I don't think that they even thought to monitor misfires in '97. take out the egr valve and see if it's sticking too. the trick is to diagnose while the problem exists, as any other time everything will test out fine

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.

2000 f-250 V10 computer sent code that oxygen sensor was bad so i replaced both of them still did not fix the prob but i erased the code and it has not come back it is kinda like a miss fire but there is...


It takes THOUSANDS of misfires to make the obd code stick in you computer. An intermittent miss could go on for a long long time before it shows on the computer.

The Ford computer readers get more specific info from the ECU.

You may simply need plugs wires and rotor/cap. The truck is 10 years old after all. A few doses of injector cleaner may help as well if you have deposits causing poor misting on a cylinder or two. I would also suggest having your fuel pump pressure tested since poor pressure is one of the things that can cause drivability issues and not show up on a code scan. I hope OBD 3 has a code for this someday!

Good luck and be careful.

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.
