i have a stock 2.9 and a couple of weeks ago it started this,driving along holding a pace and it will start to bog down and chug,if you hold the throttle steady it puffs black smoke and will eventually stall usually.But if you let off the gas or give it more gas it clears up and goes good for a little longer.It sounds like the MAP sensor so i went to the wrecker and got one but i don't know if i need the whole throttle body or not.All i took was the plastic piece that screws on to the throttle body and has a oval 3 prong plug on it.Is that what you guys would guess as well and did i get every thing i need for the MAP sensor?The problem is still there so if you have any other ideas that would be great.

i had two rangers do that ........ I had to change both the coolant temp sensor and o2 senor. i think the coolant temp sesnor was the problem... but running way to rich took out the o2 sensor.

i found the MAP,It was on the inner fender.I replaced that and the BP sensor as well and it is still doing it so i will try the o2 sesor.

i'm in abby but thanks,How long can you drive with it unplugged or can you?the problem doesn't happen on comand so i will have to unplug it and go for a rip to see if it fixed it.As for the plugged cat,that is an option because i was leaving church when it first happened,I was driving and it did its thing then all of a sudden the exhaust blew a gasket and i had power back.I went and got the exhaust fixed and 15 mins later it blew out again.So my question is to you chunks.Do you even want a cat or should i hollow it out?

you van drive all day long with you're o2 unplugged. you will run more effishent with the cat's on there but there is no harm in hollowing it out. air care???????

I don't do aircare.But will disconnecting the o2 sensor tell me if that was the faulty part?

yes it will if the o2 sensor is acting up and adjusting the computer incorrectly unpluging it will change the way it runs
