I have a 1999 Ford Ranger 6 cyl, 3.0 liter, 2-wheel drive with 105,000 miles. Just recently, it has started bucking and hesitating. It has very little power when trying to accelerate hard or when driving up a steep upgrade. It idles fine, no smoke, has never used any oil. I don't hear any spark knock; it just hesitates, and has little power. I had it checked by a Ford Service center; they said it was losing compression in tw0 cylinders, which meant I shoulld replace the engine to the tune of about 4,000 dollars. My brother, a former mechanic, said it could be a number of things, such as a bad fuel pump or filter. Please help! P.S.--I would like to give a donation, but I could not get access to the site.(?)
have the same problem?
