Throttle power

Asked by Oct 31, 2016 at 06:43 PM about the 1994 Ford Ranger XLT Extended Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 94 ford ranger with a 3.0 v6. I can start and
rev full rpms but when I  put it in gear it hesitates to
get moving and eventually opens up to more power
does anyone know what could be wrong?

Check timing, could be that it needs a tune up, try using higher octane fuel. Does it do it all the time or only when cold or warm?

It does it all the time I just got the truck hoping it was the Cadillac converter

The only thing that makes me doubt that is that it will idol fine and I can rev no problem

Is it an automatic ? If so check transmission fluid level.

It is a 5 speed

Clutch maybe be worn down and needs replacing.

Just wondering how sure you would be about that cause that does make sense

Not sure about anything but something to consider and check out.
