1996 Ford Ranger, 2.3 4 cyl, 300,000 plus miles, when accelerating, a/c stops blowing out of vents and blows out defroster vents. Also, when driving in hot weather, I can go about 30 to 50 miles, then it starts lugging down, backfires, eventually dies. Will crank, but will not start. I usually have to wait 1 to 2 hours (depending on air temp). It will finally start and run, but will do the same thing again until the air temperature cools off. Have replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, and checked catalytic converter. Checked for codes, found none.
