FORD RANGER ENGINE PROBLEM
2001 Ford Ranger • 150,000 miles
I have a 2001 ford ranger. I just recently purchased it, and I thought I'd do a tune up on it so I did. I put new wires&plugs and now when I drive in town my check engine light comes on, it shows code p306 ,to which I know to be a #6 cylinder mis-fire, I've chanded the plug&wire 2times now& I still get the same code. If I clear the code& drive it on the high-way the light never comes on, but in town it will. The size of my motor is a 3.0L, do you have any idea what it might be?

Misfires are detected by the rotational speed of the crankshaft slowing down momentarily. That is what allows us to feel it. At highway speeds that may not last long enough to be detected, but the misfire event will last longer at slower speeds and that may be the only time it is detected.
