Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Is this a bad misfire that is felt or subtle?

If you unplug injector 2 does it run worse at idle?

Your a ford guy and never worked on a ranger 2.3? How in the hell do you unplug #2 injector with it running. I pulled the top intake to get to the crap I checked
I tested injector pulse with a test light. I will move the injector to a different hole and put it back together.
