SOURCE: 95 2.3l ranger: When engine is cool, it will miss

an ignition coil and/or wires seem to cause the most trouble when cold or damp. Sounds like you have a bad coil or wire(s). Spray down ignition coil and wires with water (in a spray bottle). If the engine reacts you may be onto something. I have also seen carbon tracking on the spark plug that can cause this. Cracked coil housings are common on a lot of Ford ignition systems

SOURCE: my 1990 ford ranger when the motor is cold it runs

Could possibly be the temperature sending unit. They tell the computer what the coolant temp is. When the engine is cold, it will richen the air fuel mixture. IT could possibly not be sending the right signal to the computer, thus causing it to run crappy.

replace the Oxygen senson before catalytic converter this sensor tells the computer to send signal to fuel injectors to allow rich mixture upon start up for warm up then leans out mixture as it heats.

Spits and sputters until warm


TUNE-UP, SPARK PLUGS, WIRES, AIR & FUEL FILTERS, FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER IN TANK, ALSO REPLACE PCV VALVE, & MOST IMPORTANT, REPLACE EGR VALVE, IT GETS TOTALLY CLOGED UP, YOUR ENGINE IS KNOWN FOR THAT. I HAVE A GNC 2500, 3/4 TON. SEEN IT ALL. CHANGE YOUR DISTRIBUTOR CAP & ROTOR ALSO. JUST DO IT !!!!!!!!!!!

1993 jeep wrangler runs good till it gets to about 190 degrees. Then it spits and sputters and misses like crazy until temperature gets to 220 degrees. Tail pipe glows red hot. What is going on?


I had a similar issue once. It turned out that the distributor shaft was very slightly bowed. When the engine would warm up the distributor shaft would flex more thus throwing off the timing. I had to replace the distributor.

Spits and sputters in damp weather until it warms up


Sounds like ignition problem, check all electrical connectors in ignition system for tight corrosion free connections, check condition of plug wires and distributor cap.

95 Summit 1.5L Mitsubishi engine miss /lack of power


Somewhere along the the line you may have a fuel blockage or a good dose of water in your fuel tank.Check the water in tank 1st.Add 1 litre of metholated spirits to every 20 litres of fuel.This will allow the water to break down and be burnt through the motor over time.Do this twice.If this does not work,there may be a glob of **** in the fuel tank that blocks the pickup.If this is the problem,the tank needs to be taken out and cleaned.I hope this is a start to get you back on the road.

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.


I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

Thanks,
Broken Arrow, OK
