Re: 03 3.0 flex fuel cylinder 5 misfire fixed now 4 misfire error
I have a 2004 ranger Edge w/3.0 at 110,000 miles. Just bought it last year w/about 100,000miles. Shortly after purchase, I started getting the cylinder misfire codes, multi cylinder misfire code & misfire v1000 revs. I then noticed a plug wires had been changed & previous owner claimed No Knowledge of MIL codes. The codes will not reset/clear for more than 10 miles. Runs fine on open road but in city traffic or sitting idle it will begin to misfire & ck eng light flashes (wanting to stall from stops) Rev eng to 1500 rpm helps eliminate the misfiring. I've heard of the TSB for this problem & that it is a manuf head alignment problem from the build. I'm lookin for money for another engine!
If you find anything out, please share!!!
