engine cuts out
hey there first post. i searched around and found nothing relavent to my problem.
i have an 03 ranger super cab with the 4.0 in it.
i dont put many miles on it but its cold as hell where i live. (traveling between utah and idaho border ALOT).
it seems to do it when the headlights windshield wipers and music is on pretty loud. i have 2 subs that probably take a bit of electricity so maybe its something electrical... anyways... heres the symptom
the engine just cuts out and then kicks back on. it is for like a second then comes back on. so if i've got the RMP's up above like 2500 its really unpleasent. it rocks the truck pretty hard. i seem to notice it more when i'm shifting from 3rd to 4th (i have a manual 5spd transmision) but maybe its because i dont notice it with lower RPM's in 5th and 4th.
any advice on how to start troubleshooting this would be much appreciated. i've had it for over a year and have had no problems with it. absolutely None! so i wanna keep it, i think its a good little truck.
i've also watched the gauges to see if they bounce when it happens and the headlights to see if they flicker when it happens but they dont.
