my ranchero was doing great until today. whenever i tried to idle, the engine would stall. so i increased the idle speed and that was fixed, but my accelleration was still horrible. it would take 400+ ft. just to get to atleast 10mph. i don't know if its the timing or what. i dont know what to do please give me some ideas/hints etc. THANKS!
