0.042-0.046 is the correct gap for your spark plugs,If it is backfiring now and was not before make sure you were not sold platinum bosch plugs and if you are using factory plugs,then I be looking for a faulty spark plug.Also make sure the firing order is correct.What is the spark plug gap for a 1996 Ford Ranger - ramundoo_2.gif

Very good other answers. Hopefully you also used oem Motorcraft plugs, because the Ford pickups run better with the oem plugs

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

To troubleshot and confirm the issue,i suggest you to go through the help links provided below,check the procedure and it will help you to confirm the issue in your case.

Did you replace the wires? if not you may have broken a couple of wires. Not sure what fire wire is unless you mean the spark plug wires. Also did it do this before you replaced the plugs? need to know.

MY 2000 FORD RAGER HAS A SLIGHT MISS WHEN IDLING


Try putting a bottle of injector cleaner through it and see if it clears up at all. It may be that you have a little carbon build up. If that does'nt help you may need new spark plugs and/or wires. The coil may be on its way out too, but I would replace the cheap stuff first. If you end up replacing the spark plugs make sure they are gapped properly before installing them. They rarely come from the store gapped to the specification that is in your operators manual. Hope this helps. God bless
