My '97 Ranger had been in a wreck before I got it and had no power either. I found out that one of the catalytic converters was crushed. Got that fixed and it's been running great since I got it in 2002.

There are several possibilities. THe top three are TPS (throttle positioning sensor), EGR (ehaust gas recirculation) valve, or a bad CAT (catylitic Converter) causing back pressure on the engine. Disconnect the exhaust at the manifold and see if there is a difference.

I have tried the catylitic converter and that wasn't it. I scaned the engine and no codes come up on the computer. Will try the tps and egr next and let you know what happens. Thanks

It's a 4 cylinder. If you want fast, buy fast.

I had the same problem, had the vehicle into several mechanics, we replaced several parts like you, no luck. Know what it turned out to be? I went out and looked under the hood at night in the dark, and on close inspection saw a tiny blue spark jumping from a CHEAP SPARK PLUG WIRE BOOT to engine block. $25 for a decent set of wires fixed it.
