If the problem is more evident at idle, then you may have a vacuum problem. Test the vacuum with an hand tool gauge and see if there are leaks. One of the most common reasons for this kind of poroblems is also a fault concerning one of the O2 sensors located on the exhaust system. The same tool used to test vacuum can also be used to test the fuel pump, reading fuel pressure on pump outlet hose. Check air intake, in there you have two sensors, MAF and AIT, that influence injection and can cause troubles.
To find out what the problem is, the first step is always connecting an OBD 1 code reader to car computer (PCM) to read error codes, or doing a self test following instructions here.

I have a 1995 ford bronco with a 302. When it idles in gear it idles rough and when driving 35 to 45 miles per hour it bucks real bad. I have changed the egr and the sensor on top of the egr. what else...

Hi, Guy! My 95 Bronco runs a little rough whenever one of the vacuum lines gets broken or disconnected. Because of the age, these plastic lines get brittle and break easily. Check them all. You might also want to look at your engine's dampener (behind the engine's main pulley). Sometimes the dampener becomes detached from the pulley and causes the engine to vibrate.

Will a 87 ford ranger v6 4 wheel drive trans. fit in a 86 ford ranger 4 cyl 4 wheel drive

If automatic transmission wont work engine block's are not the same, if stander transmission you could swap out bell housing held on with four bolt's from one to the other. Good luck and hope this was very helpful.

I have a 1983 ford f-150 300 straight six ...It

Check to see if there's a vacuum leak at the base gasket. Let it idle and spray a little carburetor cleaner around the base. If the idle goes up, the spray is sealing the leak momentarily. If it's getting too much air, it's the same as not getting enough fuel.

I have a 2002 Ford F-150 that clicks

Check your universal joints on your drive shaft front and rear. Does the truck make a funny niose in reverse? Sure sign of bad universal joins being bad. Does the noise go away when you let off the accelerator? The best way to check them is with the trans in neutral and the parking brake set and wheels chocked. You may see a lot of rust around them and play. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem... frustrating.

I picked up a repair manual at the parts store. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it with throttle body cleaner spray. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve (idle speed motor) which was very clogged. While I had the throttle body off I also changed the Map Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor. The manual will walk you through the steps. I had never done anything like this before. If I can do you so can you.
My Jeep has never run better. Good Luck
