A plugged air filter or fuel filter could cause this. Does it ever smell sulphuric like rotten eggs? if it does, than replace or remove the catalytic converter. Hope this gets ya somewhere. post your results.

I have a ford ranger 1986 ive replaced plugs,wires, coil, cap, rotor button and still i have a orange spark could it be the pickup coil


Color of spark is a kinda age-old test, but it doesnt necessarily mean anything. Some cars you will usually see orange during a cranking spark test because the resistance of the system and the coil windings reduces voltage below the "blue" spark level until voltage gets over 14v, which doesnt happen until the engine is running.

If the car runs at idle and rev, it is unlikely its the pickup coil. The pickup is the RPM sensor, pretty much it either works OK or works terribly/not at all (though sometimes they are funny, its rare). If it runs fine for awhile, then after 30 minutes it starts to cut out or stall, and when it cools it runs again, THAT is pickup coil type of failure, but not yellow spark. Pickup doesnt make spark or affect its quality in any way. It simply says WHEN to make spark. After it signals WHEN, the module and coil and source voltage determine how much is made.

If you still think you have low spark issues, id test it with a test plug. Its an adjustable or fixed gap spark plug you can buy at a parts house. You need minimum 25kv consistent spark from the coil.(30 is better). What that means is you hook a work from the cap to the spark tester, and with the engine running it will fire regular sparks and not skip any. If it does...spark is not your problem. Period. If it doesnt, then you start checking wires, resistance, voltage, etc.

Vehicle: 1986 toyota "1 ton" pickup truck w/EFI L4 22-R engine. 250k miles After doing an ignition tune-up (plugs, wires, rotor, dist. cap, etc...), my rough idle issue has not subsided. Q: what should I...


Hi,
Please 1-check the PVC Valve. Block off the PCV valve and see if the miss goes away. If it does; replace it.
2-The other thing is to check the plugs to be SURE 100% SURE - they are factory rated for that engine. 3-check the fuel filter.
4-Remove the negative battery cable and give the on board computer 20 minutes - then re-connect and run the motor 20 minutes for the engine to adjust to the new settings.
5-Lastly if nothing else works -I will simply suggest a compression test - sounds like a valve may not have seated perfectly or is burnt.

E150 idling issue


I'm not too familiar with an 86 302. Does it have essentially the throttle body unit to meter the gas? (looks like a computer controlled 2 bbl carb) or does it have some some funky intake system?

At any rate, check the tightness of the bolts where the throttle body unit attaches to the intake manifold. You may have to replace the gasket (if any) that resides betwixt these two pieces as well. Sound like a vacuum leak, so check the boss on the "back" of the motor where many vacuum lines are connected and make sure they are all firmly on their nipple and check the condition of the vacuum lines themselves to make sure they are not cracked or split.

good luck.
