Did you replace both temp sensors? One is a sender for the gauge but there is a second that sends temp info to the ecu. I've had to replace both on mine. It still sounds like a vac leak to me though

Re: 97 Ford Ranger 4.0 XLT Idle issue plus occasional stalling

mine did something very similar. the iac is simple to remove and you can see if it is all gummed up. If you rev it up does it rev up ok? if so id lean toward iac.

Re: Think I just learned something I missed before

If my thinking is correct that only spins when the transfer case is engaged or if you had manual hubs such as myself if you have the hubs locked in.
