93 Ranger not running right

I have a 93 Ranger with the 2.3L in it. I replaced a head gasket a while back and put it all back together as should. Problem is the truck has a miss. It idles a little rough. And it gets worse the more you drive it. It starts and runs good but say it ur sititng at a light it will start to idle bad. Also here lately its been wanting to stall if i come to a stoplight when I press the clutch in. It just seems like it has no power. Now the check engine light is on. However no one around here has a tool to read OBD 1 codes and i couldnt figure out the one I had.

When I replaced the gasket I put new plugs and wires on it. After a while I switched out the coil packs from the ones on my cobra which seemed to help a little. I thought maybe I had a vacume leak but if i spray starter fluid around the idle never changes.

Also as far as not having any power I dunno, Im thinking maybe a clogged cat.

Im going to clean the MAF IAC and EGR valve soon. Also Im sure it wouldnt hurt to put a New 02 sensor in it.

Any opinions?

Re: 93 Ranger not running right
