3.0 Auto Hesitation, Sputtering, Missing When Cruising?
Hey Guys, New the this site, And Found a bunch of great info for my new Ranger i bought last month. One Problem is still getting to me and i have been searching for the last week with no real direction to go.
My 3.0 V6 Sputters, Bucks/hiccups, when Cruising at around 40-45 mph. Right Before it switches in into a higher gear. Happens each time right before the higher gear kicks in through out all speeds as well. I feels like the engine stops receiving fuel for a split secound, when you just hold the gas pedal at a constant light pressure. I Thought it was just me being picky until my wife even said "What's with the truck sputtering like that?"
Under Full Acceleration there is no sputtering or hesitation at all, feels good very smooth. Also Idle is consistent and smooth.
I Recently Replace the Cam Sync and Cam Sensor, Plugs and Wires, Air Filter, Did a Seafoam Treatment through the brake booster line and fuel tank.
Any ideas on what could be causing the problem?
