Question about 1992 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

1992 Ford Ranger 4.0 starts, runs and idles fine sometimes. then the next time I start it, it idles rough

It idles rough and when I give it any throttle, it bogs ways down, almost to where it dies. As soon as I let off the throttle, it feels like the recoil of the throttle cable causes it to rev regularly then bogs again. It has new plugs, new fuel filter, new intake and my distributor is fine. My truck ran just fine when it was at around 3000' and arid, then I brought it to school with me at 200' and always humid. I am stumped on what else it could be! Have any ideas?

Your choke Is stuck on the Injector/carborater. when you press the gas It Is lettIng to much aIr In. check the cable on Injectors or If It Is carb get some carb cleaner from your local automotIve retaIler and take the breather off and spray carb. also check around It to kake sure the cable Is.not streatched nor caught.

99 ford ranger, idles rough till it warms up,then runs good. Hard to start after it gets hot, it acts as if it is starved for fuel. Once it does crank it runs fine.


First thought: Check the idle air control valve, or whatever its Ford equivalent is. Sometimes these start to stick and cause the rough early idle that smooths out later.

I'm assuming that your engine is fuel injected. I had this same problem with a 93 s-10. The problem was a drop in oil pressure after the engine reached operating temp. The computer, sensing a drop in oil pressure would not let the injectors fire when I tried to restaart the engine. I used a jumper wire to bypass the oil presssure sending unit and never had the problem again. If the jumper wire works, then you either have a bad oil pressure sending unit, or you have a problem with low oil pressure. Hope this works for you.
