Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


I would first try the old basic tune up and go from there. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, fuel filter, check for vacuum leaks, clean the throttle body. You could also have a MAF problem. Check out this link: ww.therangerstation.com/tech_library/CleanMAF.html
