1990 Ford ranger will run great till it gets hot then will stall out and gives me a hard time starting up then when it starts it bogs din when I press gas
When stopping say at a stop sign or signal, the engine will stutter and stop. Starts immediately with no issue, but does stop when coming to a stop in city or off highway makes no difference.
