Default 2001 Ranger xlt 3.0 liter v6 issue

hey,

Im having trouble with my Ranger,2001 Ranger xlt 3.0 liter v6 115,000 miles whats happening is sometimes when i start to take off the rpms will get up to 3000 and the motor will stutter and not shift into second gear. This started out as an infrequent problem but now its a constant problem. To correct the problem i have to turn the motor off and restart it at first this was a good quick fix but now it seems like im having to turn off the motor at least 3 or 4 times. Anyone know what is going on here and shed some light on this for that would be fantastic.

Thanks

How are your plugs and wires? Do you have any codes?

also i had a problem where it wouldn't shift into second gear traced it back to a bad signal from my abs sensor but i would check some other stuff out first

no codes fired, plugs and hoses look good but im far from a mechanic.

maybe change the plugs and wires if you never have 115K would be alot of miles on the originals should be relatively cheap and cant hurt if its not the problem
