88 2.3 Ranger runs a minute then stalls
I am looking at possibly buying an 88 Ranger 4x4 2.3 5 spd. The owner is selling it cheap because he cant get it to run. Heres the details.
Engine is a 2.3 with 8 plugs, no distributor. It starts, runs for a minute, and stalls. It will restart immediately and do the same thing.
I am thinking control module, but I dont want to spend $150 on one and have that not be the problem.
What do you guys think?
I should mention it has a new fuel pump, new fuel pump relays, new ECM, new TPS, new IAC, and new plugs & wires. The ad has no mention of a new fuel filter (and I haven't asked yet), but I would assume it was replaced before throwing parts at it.
