98' XLT 4X4 4.0 L 5 Speed Auto Issues ;(
My 98' Ranger has an issue that nobody can FIGURE OUT. Occasionally, when I put the truck in a Gear, whether it be reverse, drive, d1, d2 etc, the truck idles down to about 6k like normal, but when I give it gas, the truck acts like the emergency brake is on... One time I even put it in neutral, got out of the truck and proceeded to rock it as hard as I could, front to back- back to front, and it just would not roll.. Now when I punch it, it will make a loud bang and take off like I have a line lock system set up for racing... I have herd mainly three quesses.. The tranny, the brakes or the rear end.. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Thanks for reading All and good luck..
I have some answers that may help some people... If your check engine light comes on periodically, it could be that your gas cap is not on tightly..
If you here a humming noise coming from the engine, your air filter housing needs adjusted..
If your radio/cd lights start fading in or out, buy a new radio.. Heheheh, cause it will quit on ya in a month or two..
