Question about 1996 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

1993 ford ranger,4 cyl,233 thousand miles starts to race at higher rpms when i shift and when i stop it slowly goes back down . It has been cleaned by the mech once a year ago and recently but its still doing it.I cant keep paying to have it cleaned whts wrong? I have this same problem. 1996  Ford Ranger, I4, 5-speed, 155,000 miles.The only TEMP solution was to disconnect the idle air control valve.  I have replaced the Throttle Position Indicator, the idle air control valce, and several other items...which everyone suggested replacing. No matter what is replaced, STILL the idle races while I am shifting, and when I push in the clutch to stop, the idle races and will NOT stop, unluss lug the engine with the clutch. For right now, I just leave the IACV disconnected and it works fine.....

2000 ranger 4 cyl. Auto transmission won't take off in drive. Put in 2 and it goes and shifts when I move selector. If you stop you have to put in 2 to start off.


hmmm sounds like first gear is ruined inside the trans if your having to put it in second gear to start rolling may want to have your trans checked out by a mechanic

What can cause a Fast idle on 1999 Ford Escort?


Try cleaning the throttle body and check the gap on all the spark plugs also all electrical sensor plugs and battery terminals this could be related to engine temperature also if to hot rpms stay up longer to cool off but maybe your idle air control valve is bad when did it start?

I have a 1990 Ford Ranger 2.3 very high miles. Vehicle runs, starts and idles well. Does not visibly burn oil. Check engine light comes on at around 65 miles an hour after vehicle is warm. If you slow down...


Best guess with the information provided is restricted flow of the catalytic convertors.At higher speed the rpm's stay consistant. If the cats are not allowing the exhuast to push thru unrestricted the engine will know its labored but not why.

I have a 93 tempo 4 cyl. It starts on occasion. When its not starting, it turns over and fires/backfires/ pops but doesn't run. Sometimes pumping the gas pedal or flooring it gets it to run. It sputters at...


I would first begin with a good tune up with new plugs wires cap, rotor, check coil. injector can be clog also, try to add bottle of fuel injectors cleaner and add 93 octane of gas fill it half way and run it til empty and see that will also help. If you have high miles like over 100k have timing check, its good idea to change timing belt every 75-10k miles, if it jump time due to worn belt, the car will not run properly.

1993 ford ranger timing belt broke no warning hadn't been acting up just died..do you think the valves are okay and not bent


Put new belt on and try to start, If runs rough afterward run compression test to determine which cylinders have bent valves.
