Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
The truck bucks or jerks when it is snowing. It even happens on a nice day when I get behind a semi with a mound of snow on top of the trailer that is blowing off. So I'm pretty sure the problem has to do with snow. It bucks whether I'm in 2x or 4x and at any speed over 20mph.
It almost feels as if the engine shuts off for a split second, or like the tires suddenly stop rotating and then quickly start again. The severity of the bucking is variable, sometimes really rough, other times soft but noticable.
Any thoughts on what the problem could be, and why this only happens when it snows?
have the same problem?
