Hi can anyone tell me what other parts i would need when replacing the fuel injectors on my 98 ranger 2.5L. I know 4 injectors, I guess the fuel pressure regulator since it is out. what gaskets? ECT...
I have intermittant missfireing when i plug in the scanner it says (detected #2 cyl misfire) the whole engine shakes i loose power then i continue driving and it clears up5 minutes later it happens all over again. i replaced the plugs,wires,both coil packs and reseated and checked all connectors under the hood.
Thanks i found the problem this morning. on the way to work today the problem happened again so i pulled over and started to pull each plug wire off and when i pulled off #2 cyl there was no change but i had a great spark. i shut off the truck checked the plugs on that cylender and they look like new (Because they are) i started it again the engine was still shacking i reached under and started unpluging the fuel injectors one at a time every one made the engine stumble even worse except #2 cyl. i shut off the motor and i checked across the 2 electrical pins on the #2 injector with my multi meter and had Zero Ohms, wide open. when i check the others i have 4.7 ohms. so i have to say that is it.
Ok i finnished it, the truck runs great again. yup i had to remove the air chamber or tunnel or plenmium what ever it is called once that was done i removed the injector plugs and 2 bolts that hold down the fuel rail and out they came. all in all the whole job took about 1 hour the hardest part was finding an auto parts store that had them. i went to Pepboys they do not stock them, AID auto they do not stock them, Auto barn seme thing. struss stores no good. NAPA not in stock. Finally i looked on line at AutoZone and they tell you if they stock them and did but only 1 so i had to drive to 4 AutoZones to buy all 4 but i got them and job done.
