Sounds alot like a dirty tbap or broken wires leading to it.

I have a 2006 Ranger XP. I'll give a brief description of my issue. I used my ranger on Aug long weekend. It ran fine and there was no issues. At the end of the weekend i filled it up and parked it outside. It was pretty dirty so I left the cover off. I returned a month later and it fired right up no problem. It idles fine with no issues. But when you drive it pops and "stalls" but only at low speed. Once you get about 1/3rd of the throttle pushed it runs fine right up to full throttle. I suspected maybe bad fuel so I drained the tank and ran it out. Refueled with fresh and still the same problem. I checked the air cleaner and it is clean. Before I start taking everything apart I thought I would ask if someone has had a similar issue and what did they do to remedy it. Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks , Jason
I was thinking that myself , bugs where really bad all over unit. What is the procedure to clean it?
The TBAP sensor is located in the air-tube between the throttle body and the air filter. Most of the time when there is an issue with the TBAP it is due to *broken/bare wires, or occasionally dirt on the TBAP. If you clean the TBAP sensor use an carburetor cleaner or an electronics type cleaner, something that WILL NOT leave any residue behind on the sensor.
*New connecter for TBAP #2875542 Kit Harness (Repair Kit )
Can do , have lots of contact cleaner. It looks like it is set in a specific position. How critical is it that it goes back exactly the same way?
Not an issue. Just don't touch the sides as you're putting it in and get it dirty again. If yours is like mine (and it sounds like it probably is), it's a PITA to get at.Originally Posted by DENDEN
havin pretty much same problem out of my 2004 ranger4x4 let me know how u solve your problem please
Your '04 is likely a different issue because those 2 machines are very different......his is EFI and your is carb'd, so yours doesn't have the tbap sensor mentioned above. I responded to your other post about this issue.Originally Posted by bassmaster1000
Check for error codes. I have a 2009 Crew that had a similiar problem. It turned out that I had a bad CPS. Folks here helped me diagnose it and $42 later it was cured!

Sounds like it could have water in the fuel ?.
