alot of times when the O2 sensor goes bad it will make the truck run like crap. I think you will be good once you replace them. A nice tune up along with it will definately help as well. Clean the throttle body plate and replace or clean the IAC too

nahhh


Raise and support the Ford Ranger on jack stands. Remove the electrical connector to the oxygen sensor. Remove the sensor with the wrench or socket, whichever fits for the year truck being worked on. Install the new sensor, using some anti-seize compound on the threads. Without the anti-seize it could rust in the pipe.

Install the wiring connector and make sure it is clear of any hot heat source such as the exhaust pipes or exhaust manifold. Lower the vehicle and clear the code by removing the negative cable on the battery for ten minutes.
