Question about 2006 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

HI Have a problem, My 2006 ranger seems to be having a fuel? problem? It runs fine on initial startup, however after it is warmed up I lose power when I am idling for a long period of time or if I am coasting at highway speeds, The check engine light flashes on and off and I lose power, If I give it gas it kicks back in evetually, Or if I hold the idle up the problem does not occur. Could this be a fuel pump going bad? I went ahead and replaced the plugs, wires, checked the ignition coil and changed the fuel filter to no availe. Thanks Chris

It could be a couple of things... perhaps a Throttle Position Sensor or a catalytic converter...

The good news is that if you have a check engine light coming on, then you've got an OBDII code. If you don't have an OBDII reader, many parts stores provide an OBDII reading for free. That should help you to narrow down potential issues.

Drives fine for about 5 miles then starts to lose power then eventually dies. pull over alongside the road, cycle the key about 6 times, then it drives fine for bout 1 mile and does it all over again


This could be due to a fuel system problem, perhaps a clogged fuel filter. Since any debris in your gas tank would be settled to the bottom for the initial startup, the fuel pump picks up clean gas and has no problem supplying the injectors. As you drive, the circulation of the gas from the tank through the filter could cause the filter to plug up with debris, gradually losing power until fuel pressure is not sufficient to keep the car running. Try replacing the fuel filter and running some fuel injector cleaner through with your next fill-up.

Losing power in accelation


Fuel filter is probably clogging up (it's common), which restricts fuel flow and makes it hard to make the needed power for acceleration or other high-load situations like climbing hills. Change it and you'll probably be fine.

My 1986 Ranger 2.9 liter is hard to start (i have to pump the gas to get it to start) once it starts it runs fine until it gets warmed up then when you step on the gas it falls flat no power will not move,...


Just taking a shot here as I have seen the same thing in the shop in that last month....I am going to throw you two scenarios as you don't say if it has a carb or F.I.
If it is Fuel Injection the filter or a weak pump would be the culprit.
If it is a carb engine there is an item called an accelerator pump. this pump pumps fuel into the throat unmixed so during startup and on acceleration it needs this raw fuel, on startup to just get fuel into the chambers and on acceleration when switching from the Idle to the venturi there is a dead spot that this pump covers for.. A 20 dollar rebuild kit for the carb is all you need. there should be a tag on the carb for the ID to give to the parts store..
