Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab
2.3 ford ranger will not idle, stalls, you can keep it running if you push the gas, already replaced idle control thing, but it didn't help.
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

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
