Re: 3.0l ranger

Curious, but have you tried a higher octane fuel to see if that helps the misfire? Sometimes it's beneficial to run +2 octane on a higher mileage engine. As I'm assuming you're running 85 or 87 octane (regular), pop in a few gallons of 91 to even it out to around 89 octane and see how it runs after 50-100miles.
