Sorry this is my first post in here but i am hoping some one can help me out a bit. I have a 1988 2.9 ranger that drove just fine before the other day. I spent a good bit of time on saturday and sunday cleaning out the years of baked on oil. After word the truck would not start. I figured water just got down into somthing. So i let the truck dry out and sure thing the next day she started right up.
So i started my next project cleaning up the TB and upper intake manifold. I started to just use carb and injector cleaner but found the caked on oil and carbon just too much. So i pulled the TB and gave it a good cleaning. I also Dremel and smoothed out the upper part of the intake manifold just a hair to help get some of the carbon off and just smooth out the intake just a hair.
Now the truck just cranks and cranks. I was thinking it might be the TPS but could be way off. Starter fluid does not help and the truck does have spark.
Any imput would be welcome because i am lost.
