86 Ford Ranger 2.3L TurboDiesel won't start


This sounds like your problem.....Try this, only takes 5 minutes and probably whats wrong. The same thing happened to me, it was running perfect and died. There's something called an Inertia switch (google how to find it) the older rangers and bronco II's have them. It may think you have gotten in a accident and this device stops the fuel pumps. I literally pressed the reset button on the top of it and my truck started right back up after not being able to start at all.

Need to know layout of all vacumm hoses for a 1986


on mine the hoses are visible, with the exception of one.. its sort of hidden, you have to remove the cover and look behind the bag.. but, even so, i still like my 2000 DirtDevil, runs good, looks great. enjoy your vacuum.

1986 ford ranger ready to burn it to the ground


check the ignition switch, they separate and cause this stall out, try holding the ignition to the crank position just short of causing the starter to run, if the engine stays running then the ignition switch is defective, Ford recalled many of these for this problem, not sure your truck was affected, but it does use the sam switch and gets the same problem.
