Low Idle/ Engine Stalls
I have a 2001 Ranger Edge 4.0 SOHC
For the past 2 years I've noticed that when I put extra strain on my engine the truck tends to go to a really low idle (500-600 rpm) or dies. This doesnt happen very often though (2-3 times a year).
For example over the summer in warm temps while I had the A/C going, I started turning onto another street. I was going at about 5 miles an hour so the engine naturally was already at low RPM's. Midway through my turn the engine died. It was no problem I just put it in park and it started right back up.
Recently, I've noticed that when I'm just sitting at an idle in any gear and roll the windows down or turn the heat from off to on full blast that the lights will fade.
All the hoses look to be in good shape under the hood (that I could find). I just replaced that battery 14 months ago.
I dont trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesnt die
