Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
Truck idle's well for a few minutes but will begin to chug and sputter if its not reved, after reving will idle for a few more minutes and problem will start again. Known problems with the truck: Missing O2 Sensor in the catalitic converter (exaust is straight pipe from the collectors back) Broken air filter cover (Mabe sucking too much air and starving for gas?)
Well given that your truck is fuel injected it should have a mass airflow sensor in the air intake duct attached to the broken air cleaner housing. Unplug this sensor and see if it changes the running condition. If it does your broken box may be affecting the airflow across the mass air sensor. Also check for broken vacuum lines and the intake manifold is notorious for vacuum leaks. Will running bad spray intake with a flammable brake cleaner. Be carful. If you get the engine to change with the brake cleaner you just found your vacuum leak

Sounds like it is loading up on gas, try using a cleaner in your fuel, or a aerosol can of cleaner that you can spray directly into the carb. while it is running. It this seems to help you may need to have it rebuilt.
