Default Hey everybody I need a little help...

Hey, new to the site just got myself a nice little ranger and I'm looking to keep it in good condition, so I figured I'd try out the forum and get the best info, first and foremost I have a problem with idling it can start but it only runs for a minute maybe then it will spudder out just dies like it ran out of gas, continually happens the throttle body is pretty gummed up but I'm not sure if that's the problem. Any ideas? Thanks

If the throttle body is dirty, might as well clean it up anyways, along with anything else easily accessible looks nicer and might run nicer!
