Subject: FTE Small - check gauge light

Hello,
I am new to the list and have been enjoying the the discussions.
I have a '98 Ranger XLT ext. cab, 4wd, 4.0L with about 1700 mi on it and
am enjoying it immensely, but I recently noticed when going to pass
someone on an uphill grade my
"check gauge" light comes on briefly. This only happens when going
uphill. I've checked my fluid levels and they seem fine. The dealer
says it could be a sensor and wait awhile and see if it continues.
Anybody else have this happen or have any insight into it.

Thanks,
Greg Achord

What is your fuel level? I parked on a steep hill with less than 1/8 a
tank left and that tripped the check gage light. The needle was about on
the "E". I have also run low on fuel and had the check gauge light come on.

Hope that Helps.

Subject: FTE Small - 86 bronco II

i just bought an 86 bronco II with 250 000 km on it, and had the body redone
(new paint and rust fixed) but the engine has a tendency to act up. it
starts no problem, runs smoothly enough, but after a few minutes of idling
(without having gone anywhere yet) it sometimes wants to start stalling and
the rpms drop really low (no tachometer yet so i can't say how low) and then
it recovers or stalls. the problem sometimes occurs while i am driving too,
but not after any specific time period or such. my friend/mechanic thought
it might be a "MAP sensor"? not sure on the spelling of that, or what it
even is! for any help that it might be, its an 86 with the 2.9 litre EFI
engine with a complete rebuild 60 000 kms ago, and most, if not all, of the
drivetrain and other wear and tear points have been very well maintained. if
you could possibly help, i would be much appreciative, even suggestions
would help me and my friend to narrow down the problem.

thanks in advance,
robb, '86 Bronco II 253000 kms long and still running strong!
