Hey Joe,

Have you cleaned the Air Bypass Valve yet? It sits on the side of the upper
intake, and it controls the idle of te motor. The screw that sits on the
throttle body really doesn't do much for the idle. All that I had to do with
mine was to pull it off, clean it out with carb cleaner, and install a new
gasket.

Subject: FTE Small - Check Engine Light issue

I have a '94 Ford Ranger 4X4. I get Check Engine lights and an erratic running engine only on long drives of over 100 miles or more. (it runs perfect in the city) It appears to be load related, will occur on long climbs associated with a distance drive. When the problem happens I have to apply full throttle to clean it out. My gas mileage plummets and it provides an unpleasant driving environment. I have replaced the mass airflow sensor and the wiring harness. Service shops and dealers have been no help. They say it needs to be in a failure state when it is brought in. I am confident that I am not the only one out there with this issue and would appreciate any suggestions/feedback on solving this. Thanks.

They are full of beans too!
if the CE light comes on, there is a stored code in the EEC they can read out.
Most likely it is too lean. Either bad O2 sensor or the fuel filter is dirty.

There is a website on the net where you can find instructions for reading and
interpreting the code. All you need is a small jumper wire to activate your "check
engine" light to get it o readout codes.
Let me know if you want the URl, I'll look it up or do a search on EEC-IV or
something.

Hi,
Had the same kind of symptoms with my wife's 94 Explorer! Turned out to
be the O2 sensors.

Subject: FTE Small - Injection Schemes

Fuel Injection gurus, your advice please!

I have a rebuilt 2.9, using World Heads, an MSD 6A, MSD Super Conductor
Wires, Blaster 2 coil, Champion Truck plugs and a James Duff Power Chip.
The motor breathes through Flowmaster series 50 muffler and a K and N
intake. The EFI system is rebuilt with all new components, and the self
test goes 1 1. (All test good!) I use synthetic oil everywhere.

I am looking at the ADS Super Injectors that Summit sells for the 2.9.
For $379, they have a new set of Injectors that are supposed to be "all
that". Their ad claims more precise fuel metering, and far less fuel
restriction.

I am currently running on a new fuel system. New pumps (Both of them), a
new filter, and a new fuel pressure regulator on the fuel manifold.

I was wondering about instaling these in my motor. Has anyone got any
experience with them? Does anyone know enough about the EFI fuel
Injection system to tell me if I would be wasting my money?

I would like some more goodies for the little V-6, but for $379 I would
like some advice ahead of time about what I would see. Someone told me
that the power chip and MSD 6 would wash the new injectors out, but I
would like to hear what you all have to say.

Any comments welcome!

Adam
