A bad vacuum line was my original thought, thanks to these forums, but I couldn't find a leak anywhere.

My Ranger is at a local mechanic right now. I will post the results when I have them.

The mechanic is still trying to figure out what is wrong. He has tried new coils which didn't solve it, luckily he was able to return them.

He says the compression is good, which should mean the head gasket is ok.

The fuel injector seems to be ok, too. He did replace the timing belt, which needed done badly anyway.

I am going to give him a couple more days and then I guess I'll have to take it to a dealership.

The IACV is probably bad after 200k miles

Well, I disconnected the IACV and the engine idle went very low and rough to the point of almost dying, so I figured it was functional.

What fuse was it? I got a check engine light that just turned on and no scanners are turning on with mine.
