Flashing check engine light?
99 ford ranger xlt, 5 spd 4cyl:
Fix one thing and another issue crops up. so i had a high idle, fixed it by replacing the IAC gasket. It had jerky throttle, so i replaced the TPS. Both issue are now gone. Sadly I had to take the TB off the truck on monday to get the old TPS off. Had to go get new screws and by the time i got back i ran out of light. I go to put everything back on the next day, but its raining. Whatever i put everything back in, fire the truck up and other than a bit of a rough idle the truck runs great. Fast forward to today, i take the truck out to go to work (i usually take the bus) and the idle is worse, feels like only 2-3 of the cylinders are firing properly, and it has 0 power going up hills. Then the check engine light starts flashing at me. On the drive home it did the same.
Has anyone ever delt with something like this?
worst part of it all, Today was my last day at my old job, and i start my new one tuesday, and i need to drive my truck to my new job, and i'm supposed to go camping ...
One man's anarchy is another mans revolution. Just depends on what end of the rifle you're looking at.
99 ranger xlt, 2.5l 5spd. Its tiny, slow, has plenty of body mods thanks to the previous Asian owner and I love it.
