Why is it running rich, blowing black smoke, and idling roughly?


This problem could be caused by a large number of faults. Clogged air cleaner, bad spark plugs or wiring, choke not opening (If this motor has a choke), oxygen sensor bad just to list a few possible problems.

92 ford ranger when first started excessively high idle


Could be a vac leak, or a faulty idle air control valve on the throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating the amount of air entering the intake.

Does your truck have manual control or automatic control of choke? Did you check the throttle positioning sensor?

1987 Ford Ranger 2.0L idle is very high and wont go down


Sounds like you need W-D40 on all the movable parts of your carb. Also see what is blocking the butterfly to close all the way. Check the high idle linkage and see if it is properly closing all the way on warmup.
