I asked Oppo “WTF is wrong with my Ranger?” A few days ago. When I noticed it jerking/bucking when I got on the gas a little bit, particularly in the lower RPMs/up hills.
I ordered plugs, wires, and a fuel filter. The plugs arrived yesterday, the fuel filter arrives tomorrow, and the wires arrive Sunday. I put the plugs in just now and wowzers! It runs sooo much better, the bucking/jerking is gone! I used to really feel it when the A/C switched on, now its much smoother. I’m kind of surprised it was the plugs. I thought fuel filter for sure. Obviously I will still be replacing the fuel filter and wires, but I will be doing so with less angst. Thanks peeps!
