Have you checked the fuel filter to see if it is clogged? If you have already repaired vaccum leaks, that would be the next easy thing I would check. After that, spark plugs.

I have not yet, because it didn't run like this befor, but I did buy it thinking the same I also have a02 ranger 4.0l that's got issues mostly suspension, and a weird misfire too, and I work ten hours a day at my fulltime job

I definitely understand having a busy work schedule. Just check them out as you get the time. Smile
