Engine Performance problem
1991 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 155000 miles
My 91 Ranger runs great, then in no preditcable way, starts hestitaing, jerking and stalling. You can recover by clutching in, revving up the engine, and restarting. When it goes into this mode, the engine light also comes on. Just today I drove 30 minutes it was fine, idling fine, running fine, no engine light. Then I stop at the parts store and when I got back in, engine light, stalling and hestitating for the next 3o minutes. After changing the fuel filter, the check engine light doesnt come back on and it runs OK. I also looked at the plug wires that appear to need changing, if nothing else but from age. Of course this is the pattern of problem/no problem. The only thing that is consistant is when the engine is acting up, the check engine light is on, and ther reverse is true. No light, runs fine.
What has me stumped is the inconsitant behavior.
have the same problem?
