Need some help guys!

Hi, I have a problem with my 97 ranger that i'm hoping someone on this forum can help me fix. the engine is a 2.3 litter and it barley runs. you have to floor it just to get the rpm's up. when i'm taking off in first it almost stalls unless i feather the clutch. there is no engine light on either . so i am guessing there would be no codes if i took it to the dealer. i am guessing it is a problem with a sensor. there is a wire going to a sensor in the air intake right before the throttle body. when i disconnect it nothing changes. could this be the problem? does anyone know what sensor that is? any help would be greatly appreciated.

There still could be a code. Go to Autozone and they'll scan for free. If it's the MAF you unhooked and it runs the same, that means the MAF isn't the problem. Did the problem suddenly occur? Has the timing belt been replaced?
