If u have good air flow to it u should maybe check for a fuel problem or ur mass air flow senser un plug it and try and start that way if u get the same results that might be ur problem if ur not sure where it is ill try and help u . if u look where ur throttle body is and look at the fire wall the is a square senser i dont look like it does much but it will let ur car run for a min or two and then it will die good luck let me know if this worked for u

SOURCE: will start if it sits over night.but will only run

hi,

sounds like possibly a bad vacuum leak and/or completely clogged injectors. probably your best bet would be to take it to a local mechanic and have them scan the cars computer rather than trying to guess, its cheaper in the long run..

good luck

Car wont run on idle


Could be a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating how much air enters the intake thru the valve.

1994 Ford Ranger Starts runs for 3-4 minutes then dies, changed ignition mod, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay,checked vac hoses, totally lost!!!!!


As with any no-start or stall problem you will need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition issue.
The high idle usually means you have a vac leak or a problem with the throttle body or idle air control valve. The control valve is how the computer controls the idle speed.
You'll need to watch the fuel system and spark to see which is being affected when the engine dies.
You might want to hook a test light up to the coil to see if it is loosing voltage for example.

Running problems


Idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, the idle air control valve controls the amount of air let into your engine when you start or while running you holding your foot on the gas lets more air in.
