Kind of funny this engine dilemma. Thinking about putting a 2.2 eco tech or similar in my bug when i get to it. but here's the deal

I recently reacquired an 88 4wd ranger that was originally mine and sold to my dad when i got married, had to pay rent and he needed a good rig.
So i got it back for free. Sat for quite a while 153,000 miles on it. I got it running poorly it had new plugs and so not long ago mileage wise. but thats were i started little better. fresh fuel, fuel filter, little better. new tfi ig modual. much better, new o2 sensor, old one was broken a tad better new coil. runs real good when cold when it hits operating temps it starts to load up and starts loping at idle eventually dies. I have about 100 bucks into this so far, not quite sure where to go next. i believe the pressure reg is bad, not holding rail pressure. if i continue with this thing i need it to run like a sewing machine before i fix the mechanical stuff. My dad never takes care of anything it needs a thou worth of parts to make it road worthy.

the point i'm making here is i'm already sick of all the sensors moduals and crap that you guess is bad. I think i'm going to have to go with something with points and condenser that you can keep running for a few bucks. HMMM i still have a 2l pinto with a dizzy doing nothing. and can still get get some heat.

I feel better now.

Todd

P.S. the reason for the 4wd ranger is the winter here last year was real bad i live way out in the country and they didn't plow very good.
