Have you replaced the plug wires also? As a general rule of thumb it is also wise to change plug wires when changing other ignition components. If one or more of the wires are cracked or or dryrotted, the wires will arc and therefore cause the cylinders to miss. Try replacing all ignition wires as they generally only last about 20,000 miles before they start to deteriorate.

You state you changed plugs and wires - Do distributor cap & rotor? If not you should then set timing. That should cure hesitation (might change fuel filter also and run good fuel system cleaner through it)
Prob 2 - sounds like a u-joint or possible brake pad/rotor issue. Does the squeal only happen in mornings when cold? Sometimes after sitting overnight, rotors get condensation and when backing out they'll squeal/grind. Somethings to look at...

How hard or easy is it to change a heater core on an 1988 ford ranger

Check my tips and tricks in my profile. If you have a 88 ranger 4 cyl. like mine. It's a piece of cake. I can't imagine the 6 cyl version being that much more complicated but I haven't worked on one. If you have any mechanical skills and common screwdriver bits or small sockets it should take you all of 30 mins. And like everything else I ever had to replace on the truck it costs $25 - $35.
