Customer: tes
JA: Are you fixing your Ranger yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes. if it isn't to complicated
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I took it to a mechanic. He installed new spark plugs and tuned it but the problem has reoccurred. It also pings really bad under load. But I think it is a separate issue.

Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 10 months ago.

A bad fuel pump can cause ALL these problems, you need to check the pressure and volume with a gauge.

I would also like to see computer freeze frame data if you have it.

Thanks, Ron
