Default Re: 2.9 ranger starts idels fine but spits and spudders when you try to drive

First thing I would do is hook up a fuel pressure gauge, run it up so you can see it in the cab, then put it in gear and see if the pressure stays in spec. If it does, then the next thing I would check is codes in the computer system. I would also recommend changing your fuel filter if it hasn't been change in some time.
