2.3L Idle question
I recently purchased a 1994 Ranger XL 2.3L 5spd , 2WD ,127K,as a spare truck to run the pickup truck type errands with :)
We have been going thru it and getting it all "fixed up", so far looks like a great truck.
We put plugs, and wires in it yesterday (the old ones were just hanging by threads). Also replaced the IAC. I thought I was doing good when cleaning the throttle body, MAF, and air temp sensor. I sprayed cleaner into the passage w/i the throttle body to clean the IAC. Well, when we started it up it barely idled. Thought maybe it was a misplaced wire, but cked the firing order and it was fine.
Bought a new IAC this am and the idle is much better (must have did something to the old one w/ the cleaner?), BUT it still has a slight shake to it at idle.
I have been going nuts thinking it might have a vacuum leak, but have not found any yet.
Is it normal for the 2.3L with 127K on it to not idle as smooth as a new car??
Any input is appreciated.
