2002 ranger with low power

We have had this thing at the dealer for 3 weeks now. They cant find anything wrong. After supposedly going thru clutch/drivin clutch, belt, tranny, timing, electrical, carb.....
Here is the problem. (only has 380 hours)It was running fine then one day all of a sudden it started loosing power. So I orderd a new belt and that was not the cure. You can from a dead stop stomp gas pedal and cant spin a tire has a very sluggish take off. It acts as if it has a governor at 10 mph.

Any ideas?

Re: 2002 ranger with low power

Thanks for your fast reply I will call the shop in the morning and ask them if they checked the jets. They told me they went thru the carb but I want to ask if they specifically checked the jets. Im needing my ranger bad it is hunting season and well you know the rest. One bright side to it. They are not charging me anything for two weeks worth of work because they cant find the issue.

Re: 2002 ranger with low power

even if they say yes, no scratch that. Don't ask them if they checked them ask them to replace them and tell them you want the old ones available for self inspection. You know it will be done that way..
Again keep us posted..

Thanks that is a good idea never hurts to have new ones anyway at least they are not as pricey as a clutch
