86 ford ranger 2.0
My truck ran fine yesterday and today, i went away
for about an hour and when i jumped in to move it
it fires right up but now if i let my foot off the gas it
dies, its a single barrel carb, im thinking maybe the
ethanol gas is causing an issue but i honestly dont
This must be the F series Ranger with the inline 6 cylinder, all of the small Rangers were either 4 or V6 and had 2 bbl carbs. So that being said, most likely the idle circuit is plugged, and will need to be overhauled, if your going to do this yourself, make sure the carb kit is ethanol resistant and you should replace all the fuel hoses with the new multi fuel hoses to prevent those from getting eaten out from the ethanol.

No its a 4L 2.0 not a 6 and ive done plugs wires cap and rotor and oil change and it has a carter 1bb carb not a 2bb or a 4bb its a 2.0 L4 122cid 1989cc engine carb YFA part # 7-7762 carter at this point the plugs are fouled black i believe it is a weak valve cover gasket however several other opinions believe it is the result of ethanol gas in the tank setting and ive acquired a rebuild kit and after this if it hasnt made a change i will do a valve cover set overhaul
Same thing applies, those carbs were never designed to run this garbage we have for fuel, so an overhaul is your only option especially if the plugs are black.
