Question about 2005 Ford Ranger

2 Answers

My 2005 Ranger won't run. The check engine light reads cyl 2 misfire so we changed the plugs. We also changed the fuel filter. It starts but won't run. It sputters and chugs. Don't know what else to do? These days can't just buy parts I don't need. Any ideas?

You more than likely have a bad spark plug wire on cylinder # 2. But considering that when it starts it only sputters and chugs, you have more wrong than just one bad plug wire. Are you 100% positive you have the plug wires connected correctly. Here is a diagram of both the 3.0 & 4.0 V6. You may also have a bad coil pack. My 2005 Ranger won't run. - clay58_44.png

Misfire in #2 cylinder over 1500 RPMs 2006 Scion


I would try swapping coil #2 with on of the other ones and see if the misfire changes to the other cylinder. If it does you have a bad coil. If it stays on cyl.2 check the spark plug wire or fuel injector.

My mazda b3000 has check engine light on and is running sluggishly. autozone's reader returned cyl 1 misfire. what do you think?


Cylinder misfires can be cleared most often by a simple tune-up that includes changing the spark plugs and wires (if applicable). If It has "coil packs" on the plugs that would be the next thing to look at. also the fuel injectors may be dirty.

I have a 2003 Expedition 5.4L Triton. Two days ago, with low gas (38 miles to empty), engine started running rough. Code read P0302, misfire cyl. 2. Since it had 113K miles, I figured its time to change...


Most likely the coils. Easiest way to check is swap them with another cylinder, start it, pull the plug wire connecter and if it doesn't change the engine the coil is bad. If it is the injector, then you can check it with an ohm meter. Touch the leads in the injector it should read 11 to 15 ohms. if you need help let me know.

Check engine light, on and running rough


This misfire is most likely due to bad injectors. Check injector pulse with a NOID light. If pulse is good you need new injectors. However before you do all of this get a compression guage and check compression on all cylinders. The numbers shouldn't be more than 10 psi difference in all cylinders for example if cylinder# 1= 160 psi cyl#2=168 that's good but if cylinder#3= 176 and 4=179 there is a problem with 1&2. bad valves or bad head hasket etc. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA.
