Asked by Jan 24, 2014 at 02:42 PM about the 1991 Ford Ranger XLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello I have a 91 Ranger XLT 2.3L 4 Cyl. About a week ago i was driving somewhere and when i went to pull off a side street the truck started to jerk and shake and when i hit the gas nothing happened then it died. I was able to start it again and it was doing the same thing which kinda feels like a misfire but at least on 2 of the cylinders. Please help i don't know if it is a timing issue or what.

    When we got our 1986 f150 a month ago, men were checking it out under the hood. Now the engine dies at red lights and stop signs. Could my idle be off? Where does it need to be set?
