SOURCE: 85 ford ranger idles up

it could be the egr valve, located driverside at rear of engine, will have an electrical plug in to it also,simly unplug and 2 bolts that hold it onto the motor. but i do suggest you check it for a bad idle control sensor 1st look on top of motor at the air induction for a round silver canister about 4inches long and 2inches round with an eletrical plug in ,it will have 2 small bolts holding it onto the motor. i suspect that to be your problem, unless it misses bad while driving it. if your only problem is with the idle, i suggest you start with that idle control sensor 1st and as always thank you for choosing fixya.com
