Question about 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab
I have a 1998 Mazda B2500 (same truck/engine/trans). A few years back, I was getting a rough idle a few minutes after startup, and my tachometer would fluctuate wildly. This progressed to the point where I was stalling out randomly while driving. With the help of my local mechanic, I ended up diagnosing it as a mass airflow sensor error. My best guess is that oil or water had gotten into the intake. Whatever the cause, after replacing the sensor (saw them for $60 on eBay, right after I paid $300), it's been running smoothly since.
P.S. -- I don't think this is a mileage/wear and tear issue so much as it is bad luck. I only had 13k miles on the truck at the time.
