Hello all, first time post.
I have a 1997 Ford Ranger and I’ll give a brief description of what has brought me to the point of asking this question. My Ranger started running a little rough when in 5th gear and going up the longer hills (it’s a 2.3L 4-cyl so it’s never been a power house). It got progressively worse and bad enough that it would cause the check engine light to come on so I put a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in it. After I put the injector cleaner in it, it ran fine again for a couple of months and then started slowly loosing power on hills. I added another bottle of injector cleaner and it got much worse during that tank of gas. It runs so roughly like a very bad miss. I changed the plugs and plug wires and it didn’t help at all. I should also mention that after I start it you can really smell gas like it’s flooding. Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong or what I could check next?
Thanks for any replies, Charlie
