Trying to replace cylinder but with new one truck won't turn over
It has been pretty noticeable of late. I have had the shocks replaced, as well as ball joints, and bearings. I just had to put on new tires due to this and it still shimmies. this generally occurs between 40 and 45 mph, and of course on higher speeds. I know the truck does not ride like a Cadillac but I cannot afford the tires.

I started hearing a squeaking or rattle coming from the rear almost like the exhaust pipe banging up against something. It only did it in 1st 2nd and 3rd mostly. But today I heard it in 4th and 5th. Then when shifting to 4th gear it sounded like I was bogging down and 5th gear was the same way. I was going 40-45 mph, you would have thought I was only doing 15. It settled when I reached about 55 but sounded rough. I have no idea what is going on, but I hope it's not the transmission going out. Any help would be appreciated!
changed coil pack,plugs,wire are 3 months old.code reads bad coil even after clearing. 132000 miles timing belt not changed could it be out? causing coil to be out of timing?
when I engage my turn indicator, front bulb blinks ok, but both back bulbs blink, same on left & right. the instrument panel lites flash 3 times then stay on.
Replaced alternator & battery but still only getting 11.5volts....checked all fuses...not broken or damaged...checked battery terminals & wires...no breaks....at a loss any other ideas?
No previous warning signals before this problem manifested itself. With the gas pedal floored, the engines surges but does not die.
Can I put like 2010 or 2012 engine in a 2008 Ford ranger. Like will everything line up. I would like to get a newer engine with low mileage if I can to replace the old one.
