Default a whole bunch of newness....

Newbie here with a new to me Ranger, just recently purchased a 99 super cab XLT 4x4 with the 3.0 flex fuel and a 5spd in it, 105K. It's going to be a work truck for me and was trying to get the maintenance caught up on it. When I bought it the check engine light was on and it threw a code of #6 misfiring, idled rough. I just did new plugs (autolites as I read on here) and plug wires, cleanded the IAC (read on here).

Runs like a totally new truck now, thanks for all who posted all the info that I used already, but need to ask, is there anything else I need to do? any more suggested maintenance other than fluids?

Thanks!

Perhaps seafoam, change fuel filter, etc just basic tune up should be good and welcome to FRF

Changed plugs and wires, cleaned the iac, did the throttle cable mod, cleaned the k&n.......like a totally different truck now. Fuel filter Wednesday after work and it should all be good to go. Got a quote on a headlight upgrade, now to just find a set of clear lenses.

This forum is a wealth of knowledge and the search function is priceless. Thanks!
