Dear anew32, Wed 2-11-2009 3:43am EST (USA)

Do you often run your gas tank to near empty?
If so.......
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling and rough riding!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

I have a 91 ranger. There are two band adjustments on the transmission that is supposed to be adjusted every 60K miles. There are two adjustments, one for overdrive and the other for everything else. The overdrive adjustment is closest to the front of the transmission and the other is back behind it closer to the shift lever on the driver side. The locking nut is a 19" and there is a tool you get for the other nut. I have found a 3/8th (I believe) 12 point socket will fit on the square. You loosen the lock nut, then you tighten the band adjustment bolt to 10 foot pounds. Then you back the bolt off 2 full turns, then hold it in place while re-tightening your lock nut. I had to adjust my bolt in 1/4 turns at a time after test driving to get the transmission to shift just right.

SOURCE: my 1990 ford ranger when the motor is cold it runs

Could possibly be the temperature sending unit. They tell the computer what the coolant temp is. When the engine is cold, it will richen the air fuel mixture. IT could possibly not be sending the right signal to the computer, thus causing it to run crappy.

A 22r engine uses a carburetor, and a 22rec is fuel injected. If you have the fuel injected model, the throttle position sensor could be faulty.

there is no wastegate on a 6.0l turbo. its a variable geometry turbocharger and doesn't need it. i have never seen a turbocharger cause a misfire, the turbocharger is most likely not your problem. if you didn't clean the intake out when replacing the egr valve there is a really good chance that the egr is bad again. also, a bad egr cooler can cause repeat egr failure. also, fuel injector control module is a common cause for misfire

My 1988 plymouth horizon runs fine when on throttle but when i let up it spits nd sputters and dies. I have checked the charging system and it brings up no codes.


Check and clean AIS motor. (automatic idle speed) sometimes referred to as IAC as well. ( Idle Air control) same thing. remove it and clean pintle (pointed end) well with throttle body spray cleaner, as well as port it comes out of, and try it. If it's cured great, if it happens again a little later, replace it.

It sounds like a faulty throttle position sensor. Is the check engine light on? If so, have the fault codes read for free at most autoparts stores. Hope this helps.
