Why does my 1990 ford ranger,after 10 miles,dies down & is hard toget to 40 mph


Catalytic converter/s. Did you replace the fuel filter also? If not, replace it. Not the problem though.

I have a Ford 1990 f250 xlt 7.5 When starting revs up and down slowly then dies sometimes, why?


Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor(IAC) on the side of it. Mostly the IAC and the hole it sets in. Also check the air filter.

If the problem is not a vac leak, it could be the idle circuit inside the carb. You may have to replace or rebuild the carb to fix it.

Why does my 89 justy die when i slow down?


It could be any number of things. The MAP sensor is bad, a severe vacuum leak, the fuel filter is plugged, it needs a tune-up like new plugs & wires etc., the fuel pump is weak or leaking if its a manual one. If the car runs rough at idle have a vacuum test done also, while the car is running at night, open the hood and see if the plug wires are arcing as you will see what looks like small lightning sparks around the wires. The worst case scenario is the piston rings are shot causing poor compression. A repair manual is usually available at the local auto parts store, or shopping center like Wal-Mart and Meijer.
I wish you the best of luck.

1990 wrangler with a 4cyl was dying at idle found the vac line to the map sensor had a crack replaced it and reset the computer. Still dies at idle and now cuts out at higher rpm. Have to fan clutch th...


It could be a combination of 2 things. A faulty MAP sensor itself or a bad TPS (throttle position sensor). It's not uncommon for a bad TPS to idle when the motor is cold but once warm, not idle fast enough to keep the vehicle running.

Check the idle air control valve. This sounds like it is not working right. it controls how much air the engine gets when it is idling. the pcm tells it to open more or close. they get old and dont respond fast enuf.

Good luck
