Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab
My problem is when i start my ford ranger it idels high then it goes down to simi normal then the engine has an erractic sound that the motor starts to shake then it dies,But starts up real quick but ideals rough enough the engine shakes..please help.
I own a 96 & 97 Ford Ranger 2.3 Manual. The truck would shake hard when I came to an idle. We replaced Motor mounts, Timing belt,
Plugs wires, Harmonic Balancer, had it looked at for tranny brackets. It still shook. Clutch and Tranny shops all said it wasnt the clutch never heard of it before. Mechanic friend from out of state called - Had a Ford also with the same problem. If the shake gets stronger as you drive Crank or Harmonic Balancer, If it shakes at an Idle it is the PILOT Bearing bearing the clutch wears out from heavy hauling or torching motor. Clutches are replaced and the parts behind it are never looked at.

Sounds like the idle bypass valve is nfg. Try checking engine codes first. Try this link, you'll find it helpful. http://autorepair.about.com/od/troubleshooting/a/OBD_codes.htm . If you need to know how to check the codes, ask back here, I'll explain. Hope this helps.
