Question about 1994 Ford Ranger Supercab

1 Answer

1994 Ford Ranger small misfire or slight miss. Hello my 94 ranger has a slight running problem and it's effecting the fuel mileage by 10 mpg. Details about it: 4.0l, no egr valve, 6 cyl, no a/c, 4x4, xlt extended cab, engine has about 85,000, and the truck has about 159,000. The engine came from a junk yard and was put in. Power wise as in pushing the gas pedal should be better, at idle the steering wheel vibrates. When I put it in reverse and slowly backup by holding the brake the bed tailgate sorta looks like a sea saw moving up and down. It's had new plugs but not new wires, used mass airflow put on it. Overall it's a very nice truck in good condition any help thanks in advance.

Even though you put new plug in it, don't count them out...i've seen bad (new plugs).
The best thing is to take it somewere to have a computer put on your truck..Autozone parts store will do it for FREE..to find out were your misfire is coming from...
or you can change all your wires,cap and rotor.
hope this helped you ???

    Thanks for the reply, that was about my only next step. When you pop the hood you can see the engine shaking on the mounts. My dad's a full mechanic but he acts like it runs fine and don't care about it =\

Hesitation on take off and a miss while goin down the road in my 1994 2.3l ford ranger


Start with a complete tune-up

Plug wires can cause this.

Do spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor cap, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, oil & oil filter.

People often neglect these simple things which could save your motor, maintain it's efficiency plus improve gas mileage.

Sometimes you may need to go into reverse then back to get the desired effect. The hubs probably need to be cleaned and regreased.

Excessive fuel consumprion - 2.3 L 4 cyl engine


Not for the home mechanic, but you could try a fuel system service. Basically they add chemicals to your fuel tank via a machine, and these chemicals clean the fuel system... fuel injectors, lines, filter, basically everything... that seemed to help my fuel mileage and also throttle response.
