Hey folks, got a manual 1998 Ranger 3.0 4x4. Been having problems accelerating, especially from a dead stop. It would speed up fine, but all of a sudden slow down then pick back up again.. At first it would just be the first couple gears, but after riding on it for a month now, it seems to happen almost every time I accelerate no matter how fast I'm going or what gear I'm in. And just recently I had gotten a check engine light.
I'm not gunning it, and I can usually ease into the clutch slow enough so it wouldn't happen, but is gradually getting worse. Any suggestions? Any would be helpful, thank you!
