I have a 95 Ford Ranger 2.3L Manual Transmission
w/ OBD-2 diagnostics
Every time I time I push in the clutch and let off the gas as I'm coming to a stop it stalls. It will immediately fire back up and continue running but it will die again the next time I let off the gas.
Here's what I know and what I've done.
It initially was throwing a cylinder #1 misfire code but I replaced the plugs, wires and both coil packs and while the code has cleared and the engine
no longer sounds like it's missing the stalling problem remains. And now there are no more codes.
The car will start without a problem and remain running at idle. However if I rev the engine and let off the gas it will sputter even at a stand still.
It has good throttle response and there does not seem to be any issues as long as the gas is being pressed, only as I let off.
In addition to plugs, wires and both ignition coil
packs I've replaced the Idle Air Control Valve and tested the MAF sensor with a multimeter (and it appears to pass the criteria for operation as included in the instructions I found online).
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read my question.
