#2 cylinder missing
Hello I have a 2001 ranger 3.0 v6 and just replaced the air filter, plugs, plug wires, oil filter, and changed oil.
previously the only thing I would change was the oil/filters, but now that the truck is old I am not afraid to wrench on it myself, just bought a obd-II reader and got a missing number 2 cylinder warning.
I do not know what the problem is, I am guessing it is a clogged fuel injector and i might try running some cleaner through the tank and see if that helps.
the truck has always had a stumble at times that would go away if i rode it out but every few months it would stumble again, and before I didnt have the reader and the problem would go away after driving so i never took it in.
now its running bad though and I need to adress the problem.
has anyone esle had similar issues, I am thinking about trying fuel filter first.
