#1723 of 2995 Dead 6th Cylinder problem in 2004 Ford Ranger
Oct 18, 2005 (7:35 pm)
I own a 2004 Ford Ranger that I drive for a living. It
has 96,000 miles on it and I bought it just last year.
The "check engine" light began to come on recently,
and the code indicated a misfiring cylinder, the 6th.
I took it to an ASE, AAA certified shop, they looked at
it for 2 days and are scratching their heads. After
consulting with Ford about the problem, no one can
figure out what is wrong. It was put back together
and driven over to Airport Ford in Florence, KY this
morning. This is most definitely some sort of major
defect, and I will post more later on.

could be the motor on the transfer case or the module sometimes in back of drivers seat.

I would turn the key on in my 1990 Ranger 2.3L 4-cyl 5-speed and listen for a buzzing sound. At the end of the buzzing sound there would be a click noise. Then I would turn the key to the start position and the truck would start no problem. Now the buzzing sound is gone and the truck just rolls over.
I checked the power to the fuel pump in the tank and it works.
I looked for another fuel pump on the driver side frame near the door and all I find is a fuel filter.
If anyone reading this message knows what else to check or knows what the problem is it would be a great help, because from here I have no idea whatsoever.
This truck is an heir-loom.
Any advice would be helpful and very much appreciated.

So I'm getting ready to remove my tank to get to the brake line. Were there any tricks to getting the tank off? You said it was just hanging there...

Starts randomly. The battery, starter, relay, and clutch switch have all been replaced. Does anyone have any suggestions?
