FUEL PUMP

1995 Ford Ranger

Engine Performance problem
1995 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles

My 1995 Ford Ranger will go but has no power.I dont have a fuel pressure guage but I have in mind that the fuel pump is not working properly. The truck will go but has no power, you can also hear a labor knock like the plugs are firing wrong (spark knock). Would the relay be a thing look at. If you feel that I am in the wrong direction please tell me. I have set my timing already. Please help.

As far as the fuel pump, it could be weak. Most parts stores will lend or rent you a gauge if you decide to check it. As far as the spark knock, I would start by checking the knock sensor. Also, make sure there are no vacuum leaks and the catylatic converter isn't plugged. Has the check engine light ever come on?

Let me know what you find.
