    Have you tried the old method of cycling key , on, off, on, off, on, leave on,(not start) then watch & count flashes of check engine light?

    problem: too much fuel or not enough air.I'd go with too much fuel...check tps egr and manifold air pressure sensors OR, check temp sensor...may think its always cold.

Change your distrubutor cap and points..... they are probably worn if you didnt do that at the same time... your code read is too new as your truck is OBD I and make sure your distrubutor isnt wet as this will casue stalling (i just added that in assuming you washed your engine bay in your 'tune up" )

Check your trans fluid level, the trans will make it stall out if the fluid is low. The lock up converter is normally open with pressureized fluid. If the fluid is low or foaming it will cause the lock clutch to apply stalling the engine.

Spitting and sputtering like not getting fuel


It may have fouled your plugs, but you can tke them out and clean them. Use a small blade and scrape the carbon off.
You could also take the egr valve off and try to clean it. Use a wire brush. also clean as best you can the passages under the valve, they can get plugged with carbon. Use a new gasket when you bolt the egr valve back down. Keep trying to get the fuel filter off, but the egr cleaning should help.

Sounds like the plugs may be fouled or the fuel filter needs replaced. I would start with these two easy and cheap fixes!

If the check engine light is not on, stay away from sensors for now. First when is the last time you have had a tune up? PLugs , wires, air and fuel filter. Stalling at a stop can be from the air filter, fuel filter (clogging up), It can also be from the catalytic conveter, these also clog up. It can be from vacuum leaks, this usually has a rough idle also. It wouldn't hurt to check for codes, intermittant codes don't always pop the light on. On some vehicles the o2 sensors can cause a rough idle and stall at stops, ut they usually set a code/ light.

Old '87 ranger been sitting in folks yard few years. fires up fine, but spits and sputters going down the road


Old fuel in tank, fuel filter clogged, plugged/clogged carb. or fuel injectors.

1. Drain fuel from tank and replace with new fuel with SeaFoam or Lucas

2. Repace fuel filter

3. With engine running at a high idle and air cleaner off, spray or pour carb/fuel injection cleaner into carb/fuel injectors.

If problems persist, check plug wires for cracks and/or breaks. Pull spark plugs checking for fouling.
