Try replacing the ignition module in the distributor. This is a common problem on these engines.

I have never seen it done because there is not room to do it you can always take the engine out and do it that way

Use a gas treatment with a full tank of premium gas and see if it clean out your fuel system. It could also be your MAF sensor. There are ways to clean them but you have to be careful not to damage it.

Old '87 ranger been sitting in folks yard few years. fires up fine, but spits and sputters going down the road


Old fuel in tank, fuel filter clogged, plugged/clogged carb. or fuel injectors.

1. Drain fuel from tank and replace with new fuel with SeaFoam or Lucas

2. Repace fuel filter

3. With engine running at a high idle and air cleaner off, spray or pour carb/fuel injection cleaner into carb/fuel injectors.

If problems persist, check plug wires for cracks and/or breaks. Pull spark plugs checking for fouling.

They sell o2 sensor trickers for the exhaust online but you shouldn't need them. If it's off road then eliminate the computer and wire in the distributor yourself. If keeping the computer then figure out if the plug is a single misfire or random. Try changing plugs and wires.

If its a (holley) motorcraft 2 bbl carb sounds like the power valve. They typically blow out whenever the engine backfires or they just wear out after time and flood the idle circuit.

Changing electric system on 2.8 engine


You will need the Duraspark ll ignition system from a late 70's Ford 2.8. I used the 78 Mustang ll to order the parts when I did my 84 Bronco ll 2.8.
You will need the distributor, rotor, distributor cap and adapter, and the ignition module. You can use the TFI coil that was on the 2.8. you will also have to replace the feedback carb with a non feedback one. A Motorcraft 2150 will work.
For more help TheRangerStation.com is a site dedicated to Ranger based vehicles(Ranger, Bronco ll and Explorer). They have a very extensive Tech Library. Membership to the site is free and the forums and Tech Library can be viewed without becoming a member.
Look in the Tech Library under "Ignition/2.8 duraspark conversion.
