With out a check engine code there could be few things that can do this, clean the mass air flow sensor, check your engine air cleaner and then if this doesn't help, have someone start the car while you watch the throttle linkages, after it warms up watch which linkage moves when the engine speed drops this will be connected to the problem sensor / auto choke. Try unplugging it to see if it helps before you go out and buy a new one.
I hope this helps

Changing a timing belt on a 2.3l ranger 1996 - belt did not break,can i just put the new one on without moving cam,crank etc..


Sure, no problem. For safety sake, disconnect battery so it doesn't get "bumped" via starter. And be sure to NOT move cam or crank.

I got a 1990 ford ranger 2.9 v6 its running very crappy


Fluctuating an high RPMs sounds like a leaking or missing vaccume hose to me, I had simmilar problem found open hole with hose off, replaced it now the RPMs are under 1000 again.
As for the stalling I also am having a simmilar problem, and am finding air in the fuel rail, I suspect the fuel pump is going.
I cant go more than a mile without problems.

1996 Ford Ranger won't start


I had the same problem , and if you read your book, it could be the fuel pump shut off switch, mine was bad and went from on to off position, its usually under the passenger side of the dash, look underneath at the "top" of the carpet, and you'll see a little red switch, check to see if the thing is plugged in , if it is , check to see if the switch is all the way down. i had to get a new one , sombody must have kicked mine and made it broken, but i got a new one and it worked fine

My 1995 ranger rev's high on start up and takes a few seconds to slow down


Unplug the IAC motor when it's warm. It should be idling at below 500. If it is faster than this check for vac leaks. If non are found, adjust the base idle. Then plug the IAC back in and let the Idle stabilize. Now it should be about 800. Shut it off and try it again and see if it revs high.
