Now we're getting somewhere.
This could be a couple of things. I'll confer with Mr anonymous tomorrow.
I have dealt with a many 1k+hp motors oddly though none of them had EGR's???
Clean in park, dirty in drive sounds like either a clogged A-tranny filter, or burnt valve(tranny), or one of those weird little egr issues.
I understand what they do(egr) but there is no solid detection of them, it's seems to be a guessing game.
Like this, it can cause poor accelleration but is not related to park or no park. . .

P.S. still recommend checking fuel pressure. you can get get a pressure tester at autohaus on rental, sometimes free with deposit only.

Just out of curiosity, which engine are we dealing with?

Replace the fuel filter.
Through the misdiagnosis shined a light. Your later info told me enough to know what the problem is. i.e. revs clean in park not in gear, pump is good, flow is restricted. If pump were bad it would not tend to rev clean. G/L

my hubby just told me that when its in park and he revs it up it takes a long time to rev up and then when you put it in drive it has no power to move the truck, we just replaced the fuel filter less then a month ago, it revs clean, no clogging sounds at all, just no power. i guess also there is no overdrive light on this truck that blinks out the code.

If it's taking a while to rev up, it sounds like the spark timing or the valve timing is way off.

Default Re:2010 ford ranger

hey everyone my 2010 ford ranger has some issues. was driving all good all morning and than jumped into the car and went to go home and it all of a sudden I think went into limp mode, wont change out of first gear, everything on the dash is flashing, the speedo doesn't work but the revs do and it crunches going from park to reverse, and when you go to drive it you are at least doing 2500 to 3000 revs just to get the car to move..... would anyone no anything about the problems that I'm having without having to spend that .


( I've taken to the mechanics and they think its the gear box and reckon it will cost upwards of $10 000 dollars???
thank you

At $10,000 you could replace your entire truck. Perhaps they didn't want to work on your truck so gave you a price to send you away. Try a reputable Trans shop.

X2 I paid around $1200 a few years ago for a complete rebuild when I had my 2001 xlt with the 5r55e
