confused 99 ranger runs like crap

I drive a 2.5L 4cyl ranger. While driving, when I start accelorate it will stall out, Ijust push in the clutch and rev it and seems to do just fine. I replaced the idle air controll valve, fuel filter, cold air intake, plugs, wires. Does anyone have any suggestoins of what may be the problem?

it could be a million things go down to ur local autoparts store and rent a tool service/or just buy a $15 compression tester before u put any more $ into it, if u got valid compression, continue troubleshooting.

Re: 99 ranger runs like crap

if it has low compression idealy 20 or more pounds below what it should have, ur gasgets r done, the head is done its all done, if u get good compression, then try and find ur problem but from what it sounds like this might be ur problem . no reason to drop $ into a junker
