1994 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 250000 miles
This truck travels a 220-mile weekly round trip between 5000-ft and 10,000-ft elevation. To pull 4.5-7% grades it is shifted into 2nd and the engine operates at about 4700-rpm. Often, at some random time the tach and speedo will peg out on the high side then the engine dies (Note engine does not rev up at all). Sometimes the engine restarts on its own and other times you need to coast to the roadside. Turn key off, turn key on and then start. The engine will restart. Some times this situation will be repeated on the same or next hill. Other times it will not repeat until the next trip.
I don't know if it is related but the ABS and the brake service light remain on. The brake system is new but the shop could not reset these brake lights.
have the same problem?
