my 96 has a 2.3 when i pull up to a light and push in the clutch it idles high for a couple seconds then stops ...its like the throttle is getting stuck..any ideas to what it is??
the motor doesnt quit it stops revving high and returns to normal when i stop is what i meant to say
replace the throttle position scensor,clean the EGR with carb cleaner.
Our '96 Ranger has the same issue. Sensor has been replaced, EGR cleaned, the dealership scratched their heads and told us "Sorry, we don't know what it is". Our regular mechanic has guess, so did the dealership, but the part is not manufactured anymore and would have to be tracked down from a wrecking yard. The guess fix (a part they referred to as (the brain) would cost $200-500 to maybe stop the problem.
is it every time? A high idle is typical in the warm-up sequence for the first few minutes of driving.
try replacing the intake manifold gaskets, I have tried about everything and just did the gaskets today and it run fine now
