When buying starter motors it is essential that the starter pinion teeth are of the same pitch as the flywheel ring gear. Not all starters from the same make fit different engines because of this problem. However I would be checking that I had put the starter in the housing properly as any misalignment will cause your problem
hi i had a 1994 ranger with the same problem everybody said change the coolent temp cencer so i did it didnt realy seem to help so then i thought and thought and i realized that mabey my starter is worn and doesnt have the whirl power to start it (even though the starter sounds fine doesnt mean its not worn) so i replaced it with a brand new one and it started every time real quick after no matter how cold and later on found out this is a common problem with the ranger. good luck hpoe this works for you
It is a simple task. First make sure to disconnect the battery's negative cable from the battery. Unbolt the starter wiring. Hold the replacement starter in position and make tighten the bolts. Bolt the starter wiring to the new starter. You can get starter for 2001 ford ranger at http://www.buyautoparts.com/autoparts/2001/Ford/Ranger/Starter.html
To start, why did you replace the starter? Was it bad? Did you have it checked? Is the new one good? And what is the battery reading in Volts? Does it click at all, crank at all? Did you check the fusible link? Follow the hot wire from the battery to the link, a giant fuse type thing, check it out. Is the ground wire from the battery bolted to the frame or body, and engine? Is the starter connected right? Are the terminals on the battery posts squeaky clean? they have to be or it won't do anything. Check the electrolyte fluid and see what the gravity of each cell is. The battery with one weak cell is a dead duck. The voltage should be at 13.5 at all times. The posts have got to be clean and tight, the starter should at least click. Do you have an anti-theft device somewhere in there you forgot about? Check it out. Hope this helps.
Had the same problem and it's so simple a fix. It's the Fuel Relay Fuse located in the fusebox in the engine compartment on the driver side. Take It costs like $13 and is the same as the AC relay. Next time it happens pop the AC fuse in it's place.
i would have started with the solenoid first. if i remember right it should be located on either fender wall. i cant remember off the top of my head. alot of times that is your problem. with it being a 94 more than likely it has never been changed and im sure it will have corrosion on it along with rust. shouldnt be to hard. i would replace the wire ends to the soleniod as wel since you will have it off
