Re: 88 ford ranger bucking

By bucking, do you mean a dead miss ? My son took his to dealership, they said he had a dead miss and they would have to tear engine down to find it. We declined and brought it home, turns out the dead miss was 3 cracks in the ceramic of the #1 spark plug, then determined lack of power was the catlytic converter. So much for leaving it to the experts. LOL

well, it aint so much a did miss, when your driving down the road, it feels like your butterflying the gas pedal, and its jerking, it does it about 2 times back to back, then its good, then it does it again, sometimes it starts to idle high after it does it

Re: 88 ford ranger bucking

well, i appreciate the info guys, it was the pump on the frame, but now i have come across another problem, somethings killing my battery, and the only thing i can track to be out of whack, is my fuel guage is working with the key turned backwards (accessories) position, bad ground?
