Icon4 EVERYONE - Please Insert a Signature
** MAKE OUR LIVES EASIER! **

Looking to ask a question on the Ranger-Forums.com? One of the first things you can do so that others are can assist you in answering any questions is to list your specs / details in your signature.

For example, set your signature with year / make / model / drivetrain etc.

The more full signatures people see, the more likely they are to also create their own.

so foolish you are.



Where are your mind reading capabilities? You're supposed to be able to solve his issue. We are all ranger guru's here. The light will soon shine upon you, no worries.

To the original post:
For starters, get the truck out from under your skin. Air quality isn't too good there, might have a bad fuel to air mix.

Check /recheck all the vacuum lines .It only takes one with a crack in it throw off the idle.
Is it running rich ? Tap the side of the fuel bowl on the carb with a screwdriver handle , the float may be sticking and holding the inlet needle open.
Has the truck been sitting for a couple months with gas containing ethanol in it ?
That will ruin a carb and it may need replacing or at least rebuilding.

For a V6 you'll have to re-jet.
