2000 Ranger

Hey I have a 2000 Ranger V6 3.0 and the check engine light is on with rough idling. I have changed my wires and plugs already and used sea foam to try and clean out the injectors. The problem still persists and its getting worse in that I am losing power and the idling is getting rougher. Anyone have any ideas?

cool Re: 2000 Ranger

My guess would be an O2 sensor. Go to a dealer, garage, or (some) parts stores, they can plug in and pull the codes and tell for sure. It can screw up the mixture and cause the rough idle. 9 times out of 10 if the Check Engine light comes on, it's an O2 sensor. Probably not the cause, but it's worth noting that the Ranger manual calls for a new fuel filter at 30,000 miles so if you have that many then get the filter done. (Auto tranny fluid at 30k too.)

Auto zone does code checks for free, and can get you a o2 sessor if thats what it is. Is there platniums in your truck, because I just got some, and mine is running horrible.(same as yours)
