1987 Ford Ranger Carbutetor issue
Hey guys, I was hoping someone would be able to help me out. I just bought a 1987 Ranger with a 2.0 engine. First of all it idles way too fast and then when you drive it, it bogs down and sputters when you give it full throttle. I took it down the highway and she maxed out at 40 mph in 4th gear and just sputtered the whole time. The engine seems very strong. I guess I was wondering if this is a carb issue or possibly could it be the fuel pump. I noticed when I shut it off that a small amount of fuel leaks out of the pump. I think the diaphragm is shot in it. Could replacing the fuel pump solve this issue? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
