Question about 2006 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

Flooding engine I have a 1986 Ranger 4-wheel Dr.with a 2.9 and recently had a fuel problem and had a great answer that fixed that. My Ranger runs great after you run it for about 1/10 of a mile.During that time it tries to flood out,black smoke.It does not matter how long you run it after that,but anytime you cut the engine off and start out again it tries to flood until you run it for that tenth of a mile.Any ideal on what is causing this?

Hello again
look at the fuel rail you will see where the fuel regulator is it has a vacuume hose attached to it.
the first test we need to do is dissconect the vacuume hose and just turn the key on do not start. make sure ther is no gas in the vacuume hose or comming out of the regulator..
i have had these leak and flood the engine.
let me know how this turns out?
if this isnt the problem we need to check your injectors.
later paul

Will a 87 ford ranger v6 4 wheel drive trans. fit in a 86 ford ranger 4 cyl 4 wheel drive


If automatic transmission wont work engine block's are not the same, if stander transmission you could swap out bell housing held on with four bolt's from one to the other. Good luck and hope this was very helpful.

Try replacing the fuel filter first, but it sounds like your loosing your fuel pressure prim when the fuel pump is not working. The fuel pressure should be 62-65 PSI with the engine not running the the ignition key turned on and should drop about 5 psi when the engine is running. If you turn the engine off and check the fuel pressure, it stat steady for morn then 15min. If it drops fast, then you have a leak at your fuel pressure regulator (common) or your return fuel check valve which is located at your fuel sending unit.
Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, it could just be to dirty to pressurize the fuel system fast enough giving you the hard start.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

1986 ford ranger that is running very rich


If you have fuel in your oil, your piston rings are bad. Get a compression tester from your local auto parts store and do a compression test on each piston. If compression drops, then my theory is confirmed. The only repair is rebuilding the engine, or buying a new engine. Replacing rings is very intensive work. It's easier to simply purchase a crate motor.

i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.
