Dpfe?

I have a 1998 ranger 2.5 5 speed and my truck starts up and idles fine and runs great in 1st 2nd & 3rd gear but seems like when i go to 4th gear i've allready got my speed up to 35 to 40 so its under light acceleration it starts bucking or skipping. no codes, so i need help trying to figure this one out. Thanks

whats it do when you shift at like 45? and does it do it in OD mine used to give me hell when i shifted around 35 and i had to be a little over 40 however i never really did anything to it other than maybe cleaning out the throttle body and i ran a bunch of different kinds of fuel injector cleaner and complete fuel system cleaner, and i've been using a 89 octane gas lately too maybe the tps is acing up, but if its bad i should throw a code, but with mine it didn't stay on and it also back fird intot he manifold at high rmp, and that went away too.

Fixed

I just wanted to let everyone know i changed plugs and plug wires and fixed my sputtering issue i didn't really think it was going to fix it but it did. The plugs and wires i took off didn't really look bad but the wires were kinda stiff so maybe they were the problem. I just thought with obd2 it would pick it up as a misfire, but i sure am glad it is fixed.
