My 1989 Ford Ranger will not idle. As long as I physically keep the throttle up I'm ok. Is there a sensor that needs replacing?

Try TPS. Throttle positioning Sensor. This sets base idle. (Unless this model is too old for that sensor)

Where is the throttle position sensor on a 2004 ford ranger


Give yourself some credit

{Throttle Position} where is the throttle ?

It is on the throttle body of all vehicles

You will need a T20 Torx bit to remove --as well
as a hair dryer to soften the thread locker

Keep in mind that NO CODES TELL YOU WHAT
IS WRONG OR WHAT TO REPLACE --only
component testing does

Yes, if it was the cat, it would run poorly throughout. Might want to have your throttle position sensor checked. Try cleaning the intake with CRC intake cleaner .

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

You replace alot of things but you should replace the EGR valve and the throttle positioning valve also. I would start with the EGR valve

Reset throttle position sensor on 87 ford ranger


Ok in the Haynes Repair Manual it say that the TPS sensor is non adjustable on a ranger. Now if you have an adjustable one you have a TPS block that you use to set this sensor. The best bet is to line up the slot in the TPS with the blade on the throttle shart.

Reference Haynes Repair Manual Page 6-8
