Question about 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD

Vehicle is running hot and turns off at stop lights. The heat coming from the tail pipe has started weed fires. The engine runs great, I have replaced the oxy sensor and the checked the water pump and coolant system and had the system flushed. I don't know what else to do.

What cause the engine to run rich and black smoke coming from tail pipe?


hmmm sounds like the fuel pump is more of the issue as its sending too much fuel into the motor making it run rich or the gas that your using is too rich for the motor itself

I have 1998 ford expedtion runs rough pipes get red hot. took pipes loose. no power still. put new plugs no luck please help!


It takes a lot of heat to make the exhaust pipes get hot enough to glow red. It is a dangerous condition and can lead to a vehicle fire. A clogged catalytic converter or manifold could cause this, but ultimately the heat from the exhaust fumes is not exiting the system properly. Even a clogged tail pipe could cause this. A vandal might have stuck something in the end of the tail pipe.
It is running rough because it cannot push the exhaust out and therefore cannot take in enough air.
Regardless of the cause, have this inspected and the blockage/clog removed repaired and do not continue to drive the vehicle with this condition.

Bad misfire


run the fault codes as misfire can be from injectors , low fuel pressure and ignition problems
all temp gauges will show a rise on stopping an engine as there is still residual heat in the block and heads with no water circulation and cooling
the fire from the exhaust indicates an exhaust valve is not closing properly so a compression test would be in order to check for valve problems or hydraulic follower problems

My first question would be is the check engine light on ?
If the exhaust got hot enough to melt the end pipe, the catalytic converter is probably toast too.
It could be a leaking injector, or an ignition problem, or something else.

Engine runs about 15 minutes then dies. acts like it is out of gas. will restart after sitting several hours.


Well iv had this problem a few times in the past so will let you try some of them ,
1/ Fuel pump in fuel tank overheating ORfuel filter not letting fuel passing ,ANSWER remove fuel pipe to engine and feed into a bottle turn on key and see how much fuel comes out without stopping, if ok go to fuel tank and check the breather pipe (make sure its clear).
2/ If engine runs well when you first start without missing and idles well,but then dies at 15minutes
when you try to start again dose it seem to turn over faster or slower?
3/When engine running check the rear tail pipe on exhaust check for smoke and put you hand over the pipe hard to stop fumes (dose engine run rough and stop?),as the muffler or converter can be blocked more so when hot.{use a glove on your hand}.
4/When the engine stops take out No1 plug lead and fit a spare plug in it and lay on top of engine and spin engine over ,does it spark?? as it could be the coil overheating which would also do it if no spark.
5/ Chech coolant sensorplug for bad fitting Also check Crank Sencer and coil wire to distributor.
Let me know the results Ron

My 1995 ford mustang gt is running sluggish. I have cold air coming out one exhaust pipe and hot air coming out the other pipe. What is the problem?


Could be a crack in your head gasket. This could cause one or more of your pistons to stop firing making it not as hot as the other tail pipe. check for fluids coming out of your engine block. Hope this helps

Need to check for fault codes. Possibly a faulty sensor causing the fuel system to run rich or lean.
