Question about 2003 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

1 Answer

My 2003 ford ranger sputters, shakes when I accelerate and when the AC is on, it is even worst. It is fine when it is idol. The check engine light is on. The code said camshaft position censor. I replaced it and the light is still on and still comes up with the camshaft position censor code. What else could be the problem?

Mis-fire
or i would check your oil and see if i looks creamy...that means you have a cracked head

or your timing is off..to fix this try to turn ur distributer a little to the left or right with ur engine running...when u do this the truck should try to shut off u have to turn it intil the truck seems to not shake

2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from smooth to rough also sputters and sluggish while driving check engine light is flashing.


have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!

Son's 91 ranger idols fine you can rev engine.but as soon as you take off in a few seconds it starts to shake and die.


this sounds like it is not getting enough fuel to engine. change fuel filter, and check to make sure air filter is clean. also check the fuel pressure regulator if need be.
