Is there any way to adjust the cold idle speed on ford ranger 3.0


There is a base idle speed set at the factory . From sensor inputs the PCM - engine computer controls idle speed in all conditions . There is nothing for you to change idle speed, you shouldn't even try . Will cause PCM to turn on the check engine light ,that you won't be able to turn off . If your having idle problems your best bet have a qualified repair shop check scan data .

I purchased a 1988 Ford Ranger extended cab, the speedometer is off, the tires are 205/75 15's is this the correct size?


Is this a 4wd truck? The 4wd optional 15" tire is a 235-60-15, which means that with the tire size you listed, your speedometer will read 3.7% too low (at 60 mph indicated, you're actually going 62.3mph).

You will need to remove the covers on the steering column and remove the key unit. they are usually held in with a C-clip and a set screw if I remember correctly.

1988 ranger radical idle? how much fuel pressure do i need? carb


Assuming fuel delivery is OK the drifting idle speed could be a vacuum leak. Check all vacuum hoses and along intake gasket for leak. Also check for leak around possibly worn throttle shaft and around egr. Be sure to also check the curb idle speed and setting for idle kicker if equipped with a/c.

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.
