Question about 1983 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

After driving awhile, if I turn the engine off and try to restart

The carb. pops and will not start until it has sat for an hour or so. My friend thinks it could either be the fuel pump or its filter. The truck has 65,000 mi. on the Oregon coast so it could be rust from the fuel tank?

1989 30ft pace arrow motorhomne sat for a year no fuel to carburator. check fuel pump worked checked fuel filter good.


You say no fuel to carb, but if fuel pump works that would mean it is pumping to the carb, so maybe the fuel just can't flow into the carb? Most carbs have a fuel filter at the intake point which could be gummed up, or the float valve could be stuck closed.

Not getting gass but fuel pump works & gas is clean, also it has sat inside for 12 years


Well if the pump works then follow the pump fuel lines to the engine,you will find the fuel filter then replace it and will also see petrol if any in it ,if not pump isent working ,if dirty replace it and blow air back from carby to filter to clean out pipe
,turn on ign fuel should come to filter and then with new filter in turn on fuel and see if any comes to carby if ok it should start and run.
Have a goodday,

Have a 98 gmc 5.7 truck have to prime to start truck.


Sounds to me like either your pressure regulator is bad or you have a loose fitting somewhere in the fuel line from the fuel pump to the engine. When you turn your key to the on position, you should hear the whine of the fuel pump until it builds pressure. When you shut the truck off the pressure regulator should retain the pressure for a certain amount of time but if it don't close then air is allowed into the fuel line and the fuel drains down to fuel line away from the engine. Next time you try and start the truck after it has sat for a while try turning the key on until you hear the fuel pump whine shut off, then repeat it 3-5 times and then try to start it. Basically that is running the pump enough to get the fuel back up to the injectors. Check for loose fittings in the fuel line, or cracks in the fuel line and if all that is fine then replace the regulator.

Hope that helps

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....
