    Pickup ran fine when I shut it off. When I started it, an hour later it quit and had to be restarted, which happened more than once. Power was poor and, in fact, I could barely make it up the last hill. When I parked it, it smelled like something was very hot. This is a 2001 4.0 liter Ranger. I...
