Default New to forum from Alabama

Hello everyone,

I am driving my second Ranger since 1985. The current Ranger is a 96, 2wd, 4 cyl. with 339,000 miles. (Original engine, 3rd clutch. )

It recently started missing during acceleration and under load. The missing only occurs during the middle of the rpm range for each gear. (manual 5 speed)

I have replaced upstream O2 sensor, MAF sensor, EGR valve, and catalytic converter. Fuel filter was replaced 6 months ago but I am replacing it again this weekend.

Question:

There is a gas leak from the top of the fuel tank when I fill up. (Crack in fuel filler tube?) The engine is giving a code P1443 "EVAP Canister purge valve mechanical fault or VMV fault condition". Could a leak in the fuel system like this cause the misfiring during acceleration?

Thanks,

Greg

I live in Decatur and work in Huntsville. Needless to say many of the miles on my truck are on I-565.

I spend quite a bit of time on 565 also. We use to have a little group of rangers around here, but there is only two of us left with rangers here on the forum.

Your cracked fuel hose will cause that code. When was your last tune up?
