I'd spend the money to change plugs & wires & cap & rotor, if you that style ignition.

Would the electronic distributor pickup cause a vehicle to spit,sputter and cut out at a high rate of speed ????


First you can not put Bosch plugs in it. Also watch cheap wires from parts house. Also check fuel pump pressure at high speed. Also watch for Catt converter plugging. Try unscrewing up stream o2 on both sides then drive. If goes away plugged Catt. You can scan those and see fuel values. Then you can tell. Any codes?

Dodge spits and sputers on half a tank


Have fuel pressure tested. Pump may be getting weak, filter plugged, or not likely but possible, hole in pick-up tube in tank. Make sure you try to have it tested when lower and spitting and sputtering.

When idleing at a complete stop it dies


Check air cleaner. put some Lucas injector cleaner in the gas tank or a product called mystery oil. Also at night with all the lights off open the hood and watch to see if their is any sparking between spark plug wires.

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

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.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all filters & fluids? Especially fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.

Try replacing the ignition module in the distributor. This is a common problem on these engines.
