SOURCE: 1988 toyota p/u 22r carb,

Hello,
Sounds like you have a bad carb. While the choke is on and active it sucks enough gas into the engine to keep it running. To test this problem run the vehicle until it is up to operating temp. Give it the gas and see if it does the miss and sputter thing. Then using a can of either of other flamable carb cleaner spray some into the air cleaner nozzle while the engine is acting up. If it smooths out for a few seconds the the carb is not gertting enough fuel at high rpm. rebuild the carburator paying attention to the fuel ports in case one or more are plugged up. Also look at the fuel level float and see it it is set at the proper height. It has been a while since working on a 22r carb, but I am not sure if thereis a fuel bowl window that you can look at to see the fuel level with a flashlight. it should be at or slightly above the dot on the glass window in the carb. If low it is a fuel problem. Also while working on it check the pressure on the fuel line at the carb. Your service manual should have a recommended pressure for the carb. Regards, rcampsr

SOURCE: Truck won't idle when cold

I had a similar problem with my 03 i went through the stages as you did. also i had a check engine light come on the read out was for lean fuel mix. I finally figured out it was the intake gasket leaking and when the motor got warm it expanded enough to close the leak. The way i tested that was when the motor was cold i started it and sprayed carb cleaner around the gasket and it almost died out. i'm not sure if that is recommended but that is what i did. I changed the gasket and have not had another problem.

Put a fuel pump in. Remove right front tire to get to it. Be sure it has fuel in the tank and not a faulty gage .

You could have a bad cold start valve, go to an auto parts store and buy the cold start valve and replace it. you will see it on the intake manifold also pull off the air cleaner or hose and get a can of berry mans carb cleaner and clean the throttle plate inside and out then lube the throttle cables with Wd 40 then try it, if it starts your set, if not try pushing the throttle all the way to the floor and crank for 15 seconds then wait one minute then slightly press the gas pedal and try starting again this is how you clear flooded engine. If it starts you know that the throttle plate or cable froze shut and would not allow air into the engine causing it to flood. also check that the O-ring is not missing on the distributor cap which would allow condensation to form inside the cap shorting out the plugs and allowing it not to run. if it does it again pull the cap and look inside the cap if you see moisture then you need to replace the cap and rotor and O-ring.

I would try cleaning the throttle valve body and also the automatic idle speed control valve mounted to the throttle body, this is a common symptom of a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve. Use a product called "CRC" Throttle valve cleaner, run the engine and spray it into the air intake of the engine with the supply hose removed, hold the throttle up while you do this as it will try to stall, use up about half the can and then shut it down and disconnect the battery NEGATIVE cable for 5 min's to reset the system learned strategy, drive it for a few days and see if this corrects the problem.

2003 Ford Ranger hard to start when cold. must hold throttle open full and crank for a long time. starts normal after warmed up.


you may just have a weak battery, or a battery that is not designed for the cold. I would recommend having your battery test at your local autoparts store.

When warm the car does not idle. when its cold it starts and drives fine. when it warms up it shuts off and idles rough.


Find the egr valve on the intake. Look up on the internet what it looks like because it is difficult to describe. There will be one vacuum hose attached to it. Start the car and let it warm up. when it starts to hesitate remove the hose. If the engine holds idle, you need to replace the egr valve. The egr (EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION) valve allows the engine to re burn the exhaust gas when the engine is cold to clean up the emissions at the tail pipe. They tend to get stuck in one position from carbon build up and need replacement.

87 ford ranger wont start without starting fluid


It sounds like you aren't getting fuel out of the cold start injector... remove the injector when engine is cold and switch on ignition... you should get a fine spray pattern for a few seconds... if not then there is probably a problem with the cold start circuit (Temp sensor fault), or the injector is faulty. pull electrical connectors one at a time and look for corrosion... Hope this helps...;-)

Sounds like your fuel pump is going out on you. Check your fuel pressure. You should have 40 psi when the key is in "on" position. You should have no less than 5 psi under that when it's running.
