Default my 2.3Lis running like total crap! HELP!!!

I recently started to have issues with my 2.3l 95 ranger. and i did a little research and found out the a common issue was the injectors. they had the same symptoms. it would idle really rough and it would run OK at about 3500 rpms but as soon as you pushed it the gas it would bog down and start popping. so i figured it was the injectors. (218,000 miles on the stock injectors so i figured it was time for new ones anyways.) $100 for all four and it was still running rough. i think it might be the icm (ignition control module) has anyone else has a similar problem and what was there solution. I don't care what it cost i just want me truck back!!!

Did you check for trouble codes and check a of your vacuum hoses? Fuel injectors rarely fail.

Could be down on fuel pressure, or need a filter change, and when was the last tune up and timing belt.

ok so after extensive testing last night. . . i would cycle the pump like five or six times. so key on key off key on key off etc. and it would start fine and for for about 2 seconds. then it would die. I think it could be a fuel pump? any thoughts ???

Fuel pressure test would be a good idea.
