Change fuel filter and add a can of SEAFOAM(parts stores) to a 1/2 tank of Premium gas. Try it. and when you do, look inside the fuel filter and see the goop that's causing most of your problems. your vehicle suffers from EGS

My 1986 Ford Ranger stalls out after I take my foot off the gas and let it idle at an intersection even when I have it in neutral.


ngine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I would suspect that you have a failing fuel pump, the fuel pump pressure is bleeding off due to a faulty check valve, this causes hard starting esp when cold or after sitting. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump assembly.
