Question about 1985 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

My '85 Ford Ranger 2.3L runs pretty good but at highway speed it bogs down slightly and a little while later it will start running fine again. Thanks for any help.

I have already changed spark plugs and wires. Run Lucas cleaner and SeaFoam on next tank. I suspect fuel filter but dont know where they are.

Fuel filter? There's also a filter on the suction intake inside the gas tank, it can get plugged up. I'd definitely try the filter if you haven't. Good luck. Have you checked the fuel psi coming from the tank? If it's fuel injection, it should be pretty high, 55 - 60 psi. Let me know if I can help.

SOURCE: 1989 Ford Ranger... I added a can of seafoam,

Try to remove each plug wire one at a time while the engine is running to see if it makes a difference. If it does , it's prolly an injector. It could also be a plug wire
