    2000 Ranger THREE POINT OH (3.0!) firing order

    Okay so all I did in the end was switch 4 and 5. At first switched wires 1 and 3 on the coil pack and it started up but was misfiring. Then I switched 4 and 5 on the coil pack and it was still misfiring, so I switched 1 and 3 back again and it started right up and it idles perfect and runs...

    2000 Ranger THREE POINT OH (3.0!) firing order

    Wow. Thank you for this, definitely the best Info I’ve gotten for the Rangers v6’s. This would probably explain how I was able to wire differently another 3.0 without using the exact diagram a couple months back. Tomorrow I’ll give an update on what i did, i called it a night.

    2000 Ranger THREE POINT OH (3.0!) firing order

    And just for reference, this is the diagram every middle aged dude on the internet has given for a 3.0 v6 and ITS NOT CORRECT. I pulled wires 5 different times and did this exact diagram everytime and it’s not it. I’ve way over analyzed and done this diagram so I’m positive it is not correct...

    2000 Ranger THREE POINT OH (3.0!) firing order

    So let’s try this in absolutely one go. Please do not give me firing orders on any other year 3.0 because every single one of them is different ??‍♂️ And yes anything past 2000 is even more complicated because Haynes and chilton both f*cked up the coil pack angle. It is a flex fuel 3.0 so it...

    3.0 Spark Plug Gap

    Suggestions on stores that might have some of these spark plugs on the shelf? Autozone never has motorcraft, just am ordering option in store.

    3.0 Spark Plug Gap

    To be honest I’ve looked a K&N intake and a crank pulley from jet performance for a little more performance. But I think I’ll go get some platinums gapped with its range. To many ifs and worries with these. And I’m not sure I could carefully bend 6 of them down anyways lol

    3.0 Spark Plug Gap

    Keeping in mind the truck is 2wd and it’s 1st gear, petal on the floor with the tires spinning at 40mph to move in this mud. So I’m really looking for the best way to run this truck

    3.0 Spark Plug Gap

    I guess the question is then, should I get different plugs at this point? The truck is literally my way of getting out of thick wet clay when it rains out where I live so I’m really running the crap out of her. Sometimes we go into town with the truck but Im mainly driving my E36 bmw as a daily...

    3.0 Spark Plug Gap

    I’ll disagree on that search, though they got me pre gapped at .052 which is not standard for the 3.0

    3.0 Spark Plug Gap

    Hello, I’m back again with things that shouldn’t need answering. I thought it was high time to replace my spark plugs and wires on the ranger but unfortunately I have a feeling I’m in another f*ck autozone situation. I ordered pre gapped Bosch iridium spark plugs and was already bugged on the...

    Brighter bulbs on my 3.0

    Hello again, is it unwise to place brighter bulbs in my head lights? I purchased 2 sets of bulbs, one that’s 50% brighter and the other pair 150% brighter. If I put either in should I be changing some fuses to higher amp fuses? I’m really only familiar with putting some new speakers in...

    Are these oxygen sensors no good?

    Intank fuel pump was replaced. Her truck works just like it did out the factory. was a combination of clogged cats, fuel pump, and a useless boyfriend.

    Are these oxygen sensors no good?

    Any who, it’s looking like the fuel pump. No kinked fuel lines, everything was hooked up correctly, once the oxygen sensors and the rest of the cats were hooked back up it stopped throwing a code for the oxygen sensors (duh) previous fuel pump had a warranty but I tried to get it across that you...

    You have to be the most useless member on this entire forum.

    I can’t tell if all 3 are bad or if they’re alright
