      I have an 02 Ford Ranger XLT, not flex. Its a 3L, V6, and I didnt have problems with it until I paid it off. It has 151,000 miles & its has been running rough, and recently started cutting off unexpectedly. It starts right back up but I dont like it. Has anyone had this problem? I've replaced fuel injectors, ignition coil, spark plugs & wires. Help!

      Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the Ranger section. Do you have a check engine light with a code?

      Yes, it tells me fuel injector # 2 is clogged, bad, whatever. I've replaced it already.

      Check the wiring on that injector. I once had a broken injector wire.

      Most times, the codes will indicate a misfire on cylinder #2, for example, but not state the specific cause.
      How did you determine the problem was the injector instead of the spark plug, wire or valve sealing?

      He said that he replaced the injector, so it's either the wiring going to the injector or an ignition issue. In my case, I found one of the injector wires completely cut, so I knew that the injector wasn't getting any electricity.
