HELP! sputtering and loss of power
Im new to the forum. I have a 1996 Ford ranger xl with a 2.3 litre engine and a 5 speed manual transmission. And it has ran great since the day I got it! But starting about a couple weeks ago it has just been weak. It idles okay with a periodic sputter. But when I try to go it sputters and kicks. It seem like once I get it past 2 and a half thousand ( which I normally don't go past) it runs good, but any lower and the throttle is jumpy and it backfires. The weird thing is it won't die, itll just return to idle. Also sometime while idleing I can hear a humming\clunking sound. I have been checking many things and I'll have a list below. Also there is no check engine light.I'm looking for any more ideas on what else I should do. Thanks!
Spark plugs and wires
Ran some injector cleaner
Vacuum lines that I could see
Leaks between airfilter and throttle body
Voltage to fuel injectors
