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.

The truck is a 4x4 with 210000 miles on it. I crawled under the truck and checked that front drive shaft is not engaged. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Just started today. On for 5 miles, off for a few more, back on again, all while driving. Dash lights seem to be fading also. Any idea of cost for parts & labor if it is alternator?
I just put new alternator and took the battery to get recharge at autozone it sat for a day try to get in and start but it only turns over but when I put the jumper cables to my car it start right up

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!
