1999 Ford Ranger ProblemsHigher Than Normal Engine Idle
The engine may have a higher that normal idle at times. After cold start with an automatic transmission and when the clutch is depressed with a manual transmission. Our technicians tell us updated powertrain control module (PCM) software is available to address this concern.
The engine may misfire and/or buck while driving at freeway speeds with no fault code stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This can be caused by an intermittent fault with the camshaft synchronizer assembly. This condition can be diagnosed by monitoring knock sensor data as per Ford service bulletin #05-22-12. Replacement of the synchronizer assembly will be required to correct this concern.
If you experience cold starting problems, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steadily and run when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.

Ford has recalled 1998-2000 Electric Ranger EV vehicles due to faulty transaxle attachment bolts. On some vehicles, the bolts may loosen, which may cause a clunking noise and a jerking motion. If the bolts fall out, the transaxle may detach from the vehicle. Dealers will install bolts with a revised design.
