It still wouldn't be a bad idea to take a fuel sample if for no other reason to rule it out. Cleaning the mass air flow would be a good idea too.

Get the engine to reproduce the sound and while it is making the sound spray the serpentine belt with wd40 or another spray lube. If the noise goes away, then the problem is the belt slipping on the...

Re: ranger drivers in Edmonton area?

The o2 sensors located between the engine and the cat monitor the air/fuel mixture coming down the exhaust system. Based on what it reads, whether rich or lean, it tells the PCM what is happening...

The number of o2 sensors depends on the configuration of the exhaust system. You can cut off your cat as long as you leave the upstream o2 sensors in place. The upstream sensors are for fuel...

System lean codes usually indicate a vacuum leak. a common problem with 4.0 liter engines is the intake plenum gaskets leaking (as stated earlier) Wouldn't be a bad idea to replace them. If you...

Not to my knowledge, but I am not sure. Usually it is either spitting a code or chirping and making noise.
