Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
The engine computer uses the spout connector to change engine timing for various conditions. With the spout connector disconnected, the base timing should be set to 10* BTDC. Various things could be causing your problem. You need to get the codes read to find the cause. Most parts store will read the codes for you. It can be run with it disconnected, but will affect preformance and mpg, as there will be no timing advance.
