Well, got 'er fired up this afternoon after changing the oil (looked like chocolate milk - yuck) and it fired up fine and idles fine - no knocks, pings, or anything odd. After a while it started idling a little rougher and rougher, never stalling nor knocking, but if I rev the engine up to about 1500 rpm it misses and 2500 rpm it sounds like a rev limiter's kicking in.
I threw a scanner on the truck and it came up with codes P0304, 05, and 06 (clyinders 4-6 missing), plus P0300 (random miss). I haven't had a chance to take it for a drive yet so I don't know how bad it really is, but anyone have any suggestions as to what's going on? Its 10 pm now, and I gotta be up and outta here by 4 am for work with an hour drive in so I guess I'm going to find out in a real big hurry as to how bad I actually F'ed the truck up.. on a good note though, leaving a heater in the cab all weekend dried the interior out nicely. Plus, the tranny oil's nice and pink so it didn't get any water in it thankfully.
Its due for its 48k oil change in a few days, so I'm going to dump it off at the dealership and ***** that its missing and hope they don't notice the water line in the cab lol. Nice thing is that they're doing a tranny flush this service too on it. LR
'09 Ford Ranger FX4 that gets abused a lot... but doesn't like to swim though.
