I need suggestions what to do about not running on a cold engine.

Asked by Nov 05, 2013 at 10:12 AM about the 1992 Ford Ranger S Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 1992 Ford Ranger, 4 cylinder, 5 speed, with a 2.3 engine. It starts perfectly, but must idle five to ten minutes before it can be driven—It will not run on a cold engine. Any suggestion?

Might need a tune-up..Check your spark plugs and wires. and cap and rotor

OBD1 system could have a sensor out of specs, it could still operate but sending the wrong signal to ECM, have the codes read, or pull them yourself, write then down then repost back here and someone will help you with further diagnosis.
