I have a 96 Ranger, 3.0L with manual 5-speed trans, 97K miles. After I
begin to drive the truck after it has been parked for an hour or more,
It will pop. I will engage brake/clutch, start engine, release e-brake,
fully disengage foot brake and ease out clutch. The truck will feel
like it is stuck and then suddenly pop and burst into motion.
