Do you have a check engine light on? It should be registering a miss fire code and tell you which if not all cylinders. I do know that later Rangers 2004-2005ish 3.0L have valve seat issue which causes an intermitant misfire. But to be sure need more input.

Do a search on the forums for 'cam syncro'

3.0's have a habit of eating them.
