Sounds like a fuel problem. Try a new fuel filter first.

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

1988 ford ranger 2.9 ltr engine stalls while driving , restarts in a few minutes usually


There are several possibilities, but based on how you described the symptoms I suggest a profile igniton pickup. On these systems the failure usually begins as dropping a cylinder occasionally,like a misfire,mostly during high underhood temperatures,will manifest into stalling and finally into a stall with no resart condition. Symptoms are most likely to occur in summer. The pickup is inside the distributor and the distributor must be disassembled to install it,the trickiest part being the removal and installation of the distributor drive gear. They are iron and easily broken. The simplest solution is another distributor. The ignition modules typically do not fail in this manner,but this is classic for the pickup coil. A code for loss of pip signal should be present, it is possible for a code to not be present,though very unlikely. Having worked on these systems for years this would be my first area of diagnosis.

you really need to have your fuel pump tested it sounds like its weak or you have a bad fuel filter.

After driving for 15 minutes truck stalls,restarts no problem ,but trans races and stalls again. if it sits idle for 2-3 days runs again no problem ,until the 15 minute drive again .the 15 minute drive...


put a OBD II code reader on it see if it has stored any codes if not replace the TPS sensor and the MAF sensor do the replacements at different times so you don't buy one or the other for nothing
