Well, I installed a 2.5L from a 2001 ranger into my 1998. (first time doing an engine replacement!) Started up right away but soon dies, can only keep it running by giving it gas, the check engine light is on and the only code retreived was P0102, I unplugged and reconnected the wires to the MAF sensor, no luck. Hard to believe the sensor went bad while I was cussing out nuts and bolts during an engine install!
Any suggestions on what I could do to find and correct this problem?
PS I did install new spark plugs & wires, I tried another used ignition coil pack but no difference.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
