Ok here it is I hope some one can help its 1986 Ranger with a 2.9L V6 Auto 4x4, well to start with it seriously over fueling also it idles very roughly and even stalls out sometimes, when Iím trying to hold it at a speed it acts like it is missing (I guess thatís from over fueling as well and it also pukes out lots of black smoke, it goes through way too much gas for a V6), but when I speed up fairly hard it acts fine until I try to maintain speed again, I have already put a tune up into it and a new EGR as well a fuel regulator has anyone ever had this problem and do they know how to fix it????? thanks
The regulator can stick, and cause fuel to dump in there. Buy the gauge for about $35, and check the pressure. You'll hate Ford when you have to pay for the new regulator, as it is over $100. ANd the fuel line retainer clips are almost impossible to remove.
But, your fuel mileage wil almost double...
It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done. Simplificate and add lightness
I just replied to 1800GL on this forum with a suggestion on his fuel problem. I've seen a problem with the fuel press regulator failing open, causing severe flooding at throttle-up. Idle was fine and there were no fault codes. It was a friends Ranger and he spent much time, effort and money on parts. In the end it was the regulator. He had the 2.8 but my 2.9 has been fine so far, but I won't forget.
