Re: ford ranger xl repeted back fireing

I see this is a repeat post so I'll try to help but we need a better
description of the problem...

The "clanking" at idle.... is this a mechanical noise like a failed engine
part? Or is it a spark knock like one might get from improperly assigned
plug wires? Is the backfire into the intake or the exhaust?

As with any running problem like this, it is important to have all the
basics right.... Spark plug and plug wire condition.... proper plug gap (in
the ball park, at least), is the firing order correct? Does it have
compression on all cylinders?

HTH

the engine isint missing, it seems to operate smothly but it clanks at
diferent times or unevenly there can be a few seconds between the
noise or a few min between noise at idle. it dosnt have power eather.
my freand is a macanic and has been working on cars for years so im
sure he checked the basics. when he showed me the problem i told him
id try the internet to see if some one has had this problem before.
ill try to look into it tomarow.


thanks,
