I have a 2004 Ford Ranger 3.0L and it has 65,000 miles. We have done regular maintenance on the vehicle and I have even had the transmission serviced so that I don't have any problems. My engine light came on and I thought it was possible that I didn't tighten the gas cap so low and behold after three times the engine light went out. I then started to notice that every time I went to put gas in the truck it seemed like the engine light wanted to come on. The reading I was getting was a P0305 code which indicates that is a misfire on the #5 piston. My husband then decided to change the spark plugs and plug wires - we also changed the coil pack. The engine light is still coming on and there are certain times that it wants to spit and sputter and it seems like I have absolutely no power and then it catches and all is fine and then the engine light comes on again the next day. I was hoping someone out in the Ford world can give us an idea as to what we should check next. When I went to the local Ford dealer the engine light was not on and they told me to keep driving the truck and when it happens again they could run a diagnostic on the truck, but it never seems to happen when I am near a Ford dealer.
I will be greatful for any suggestions as to what we should check next.
have the same problem?
