Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

The check engine light is on all the time. When it idles, it kinda revs, like it want to go and go--I don't even have to give it gas and it moves. Also, only get about 25 mpg, mostly highway driving. Something is wrong--a vacuum leak?

Running a gas tank lower than 1/4 level is one of the worst things you can do, since gas acts as a coolant for the fuel pump that is in your gas tank. In addition, if the gas is a dirty as you say, the cumulative deposits have become a sediment in the bottom of the tank and at low levels is no longer suspended in a volume of liquid-which will clog the 'sock' around the base of the pump, and can even clog your fuel filter. I suspect your fuel system will need a good going over-have the fuel pressure checked (simple procedure) and take it from there-good luck

Most likely it is a vacuum leak some where if you have a propane torch do not light it but let the gas flow out slowly as you move it around the engine and if it revs up you have found you leak.

My accelerator on my 91 chevy corsica is stuck and it wont disengage, when i put it in park the engine continues to rev up, any ideas on how to fix?


It sounds like the gas control lever under the hood may be sticking a little and not retracting fully to idle.Open your hood and have someone start your car.When they give it some gas you should see the actuator move which has a cable attached,probably located at the end of the fuel injectors on the driver side.It should be pretty noticeable as about the only moving mechanism when the gas pedal is pushed.Usually pushing the gas pedal makes the lever move toward the driver.Once you have found it,push down on it in the opposite direction as giving gas to see if the revs decrease back closer to idle.If it does,WD-40 on the hinge where it pivots may help.Spray it,rev it a couple times and check.Even if it works on the first try,do it a couple more times.If this does not work,please reply back and I will get an auto link to see what you posted. Good luck! Greg

The timing belt is one tooth off. Pull the covers back off, set the engine to TDC and recheck your marks, and make sure that the tension is correct.
