It could be that you have some free play from wear and tear in the universal joints that are located at both ends of your main driveshaft. My 2001 ranger 4x4 does the same thing; it also starts to shake pretty hard if I go more than 65 mph. My U-joints definitely need replacing. I would have the universal joints on the main driveshaft checked or replaced. It could also be an excessively worn pressure plate ( automatic clutch). If it's idling higher than around 600 rpm after the engine is warmed up I would check the idle air control valve or for a vacume leak elsewhere near the intake manifold. I hope this helps : )

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

2003 ranger jumps and jerks between 40-50 miles per hour


Can you be more specific, like engine size, transmission type, vehicle mileage, does the engine rpm's fall or flicker when start to "jump and jerk", does it keep doing it above that speed or stops beyond it. I am trying to determine if it is an engine or transmission problem. But I need details.

It does it more uphill because the engine needs more fuel. Its starving. How about replacing the fuel filter.

Have you tired the Idle Air Control Valve? When was the last time you did a tune-up with new Spark Plugs and spark plug wires? Make sure you use Motorcraft Platinum spark plugs if you want the best performance for your vehicle.
