Question 88 ford ranger problems

i have a 88 ford ranger, 5 speed, 2.9 v-6, the more was shutting down, and come to find out my ignition module was bad, so i replaced it, now, i have this hesitation in it, almost like a spark plug fowling out, but it seems like your stepping on the clutch and releasing it real fast, im thinking maybe my clutch is slipping?...i replace the fuel pump, the fuel pressure regulator, new plug wires, new tps sensor, new fuel pump relays, and im out of ideas, any ideas?

Re: 88 ford ranger problems

just to update u guys on this, i even tried to reset the computer, could it possibly the fuel pump on the frame? when your driving it, it seems like the motor is wanting to shut down, but comes right back, sometimes it does it on start off, sometimes it does it at normal driving speeds, but doesnt do it under pressure (going up a hill and such)

Re: 88 ford ranger problems

ok, maybe u guys dont understand what im talking about, possibly eh?...well, ok, for instance, if u wind out first gear, and let off the gas, the engine slows down real quick, when your doing about 30, thats what it feels like, like, your letting off the gas, and then getting back on it again, i replaced all kinds of sensors, could the M.A.F. sensor do this?

I''ve heard you can unplug the MAF Sensor, if it runs worse, then the sensor is doing its job, no change, then it could be your problem.
