1992 Ranger help

Hey peps, I need some help with my 1992 ranger, 2.3, manual tranny, no A/C and 225,000 miles.
cruzing the interstate about 70MPH, at first I thought my timing belt broke... felt like someone just turned off the switch. Pulling off the road, i think, hey it's still running but rough. Rev it up, seems to smooth out some. Continue to work with a little bit of rough running, definitely not wanting to idle.

Soooo, doesn't idle sometimes and when it does, it is rough, but revs up some, but still a little rough. Also rough when trying to take off, but smooths out somewhat, once moving at a fair pace

Thoughts??

It could be the timing belt jumped and it's out of time now. Also, you can see what codes you get with this test. Fuel Injection Technical Library How To Run a Self-Test

Re: 1992 Ranger help

Thanks Bert, I thought about the timing too. Can I tell by removing the rubber plug on the cover?? I'll have to check out the self test.
Thanks again!!

It was the mass air flow sensor. Thanks for the help

Re: 1992 Ranger help

Glad to hear that it's fixed. Thanks for the update. I usually check if it's working by unhooking it after checking for codes. Unhooked, the engine runs better if the MAF is bad. You probably know that though.

Re: 1992 Ranger help

Yep, I did know that, but thought is was deeper than that, so I did overlook it. It never hurts to throw the simple ideas out there.

Well I'm Polish so we have erasers on both ends of our pencils.
