1999 Ford Ranger Problems
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.
The synchronizer shaft for the camshaft position sensor can cause a loud squeak or chirping noise due to failure of the upper bushing. The noise may be erratic and is usually present when the engine is warm.
If a noise from the rear end is heard when going around turns or after driving at highway speed for an extended period, this could be caused by a failing deferential clutch kit. An updated differential clutch kit available.

have had very good service from this 2wd 3.0L flex fuel vehicle
I just bought my 1999 Ranger 2WD with 99,000 miles, 2 months ago.. It is the bare-bones model, total stripped, a 5 speed with no options, the former owner installed the am/fm cd radio. Vehicle runs great, great on gas, and no complaints at this point in time!
