So this is a lot of information I’ll be giving.
Just want to get the most accurate response I can.

It all started when I was driving to Utah from California, while halfway there I noticed significant power loss. I was going up hill when I noticed it and to check it further I tried giving it more throttle and it literally came back with no response, I was even losing speed after pushing in the gas more.
So, I let off the gas and pressed it in again. After doing that it ran OK, but I noticed significant power loss. But, I made it to utah.
A few days later, I tried starting up the ranger and it took way longer to crank and start up. On top of that, after it “started up” the first couple of times, it dropped down to below 600 rpms then just died. After the first few times of starting it, it would start up and stay alive on me.
Now 1 week in, I have a powerless ranger that will start and stay running after I crank it for 5 seconds, with a check engine light that just popped up saying air mixture is too lean in both banks? It runs OK I guess after I start it up but I do notice it does lack the power it once had, as well as the fuel mileage.
This truck has given me nothing but head ache and I just want this fixed!! Please give insight!

Check fuel pressure, replace fuel filter.





Man I get tired of saying that.

Still need to check fuel pressure to rule out a failing pump.
