Customer Question

Got a problem with my 1988 ford ranger. Its runs really rough after i did some maintance work on it. I replaced the valve cover. Plugs. Cables coil cap rotor. Checked and double checked all vacumes and wires. timing. My guess is a sensor went bad and is causing over fueling.

Waht about the MAF sensor is ther one on my particular truck? Could that be causing it
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 2 years ago.

That was going to be my next suggestion yes their is one on it and it would cause the problem you can try cleaning it and see if that helps but more then likely you will have to get a new one

Everywhere i read it says its not equipped with one. I pulled the thing off my air filter box some sort of return valve? Super sooty in the little hose that is conected to the main intake hose. I dunno but there is another thing down under the battery that has a vacume hose from the air box. I dont know what that is
