my 93 grand am was doing something similar to the question you ask. It would drive fine at times and then it would die and when restarting would buck, jerk, etc. and had a had time restarting. After sitting it would seem fine. I had to have my crank case heater assembly replaced and now it seems to be running fine.

My 93 SOHC 2.3l did this and I replaced coil pack housing (Actually mechanics shop replaced after testing) and it fixed problem. These engines are notorious for cracked coil pack 'housing' because of coil on plug design the housing takes alot of heat. Let us know what fixed cause it helps others looking for answers. Good luck

It is possible the torque converter clutch is staying engaged, there is a solenoid in the transmission that sticks and wont let the converter release. there is also a plastic orifice that breaks off and becomes lodged in the solenoid causing the same problem. This usually can be distinguished from an engine problem by noting whether the engine runs normally until you actually put the car in gear

Why does my 1993 Pontiac transport stalls when rolling to stop?

Is it an automatic. If so and it acts like a manual when you don't push the clutch in then it's the TCC (torque converter clutch) solenoid. It'sl Ike high gear. It's supposed to disengage when you apply the brake. Not expensive or too hard to replace. My Cavalier would usually do this after driving it awhile. Until you fix it, you can down shift and rev the motor before, or put in neutral when you stop and pop it in gear and hope it stays running.

This can be a number of things. What comes to mind first is, if this is an A/T you may have a bad lock-up torque converter, or the solenoid is stuck. If the engine runs and idles great until you put it in drive, this would be my guess.

Will a 1998 ford ranger manual transmission fit in a 1993 with a manual transmission?

yes, the manual transmission is the same in the 1993-1997 model and the 1998-present model. it is the Mazda M5OD-R1 transmission There are differences that you will need to fix: the '98 has an electronic speedometer sensor, the '93 had a gear drive cable. the tail housing and gear inside can be swapped. Also the hydraulic clutch fitting is slightly different so the slave cylinder needs to be swapped. easy fix. I know because I did it.
