If the timing belt is shot, it will soon quit starting at all. It will miss really bad and sound like it's running on one or two cylinders instead of all four. However, if it's a vacuum advance distributor, the hose may be lose. Look for a connection to either wires or a vacuum {rubber line} hose off the side of the distributor. That is where to start tracking down th problem usually. Or you could have a bad rotor, and they are thankfully very cheap to replace too. Look that distributor all over really well.

If you didn't replace the belt at the same time, it is likely the belt that is causing the noise even if it "looks" ok, I'd suggest you replace it.

My truck idling low and spitting gas out exhaust

Hello Charles...I don't know what engine package you have in your ranger the 3.0 or 4.0 litre, but regardless, a diagnostic scan needs to be performed to determine the cause of the problems. Sounds like the Electronic Engine Control (EEC-IV) has stored hard codes. A self test can be performed where Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are transmitted on the Self Test Output (STO) wire located on the vehicle self test connector. The codes are in the form of timed pulses, and are read by the technician on a scan tool or the CHECK ENGINE light. With the information recieved the proper repairs needed to correct the problem can be determined, other wise you are just guessing.
Good Luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

No sound from stereo in 1994 ford probe

did you use a converter plug set for your factory wiring or did you do the siring your self. If you used a factory plug converter then your radio is probably bad, if you did the wiring yourself then check your splices and get a diagram for the wirring before you send the radio back. If you want a easy way to wire the radio in correctly the first time go to cruthfield and buy the converter cable for your radio and vehicle. Its $10 and saves you a lot of time an energy.

Change spark plugs now mis timing

it sounds like your wires arent connected properly. are you sure the boots are properly seated? if this isnt it, check the gap. also, see if you can tell which cylinder is mis firing, it will make it easier, that way you dont have to check all plugs and boots.
