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?

shutting off while in drive should not hurt anything-do you have dash lights when you turn the key on-will the engine turn over when you turn the key to start position-is it firing at all-let me know and I will try to help you-Denny

1973 dodge 318 truck starts and drives fine until 35-40 mph then dies


Sounds like a fuel supply problem. Does it pop through the carberator as it it is dying, like a lean back fire? If you drove it up a hill would it die before 35 or 40 mph? If the fuel demand excedes the fuel supply the engine will die, but would restart after cranking the engine for awhile. Possibly a plugged fuel filter, fuel line, rotten fuel hose, ( sucking air ) or tired fuel pump. Hope this helps.

If the problem occur after you stop the car and switch-off the engine, it could be the master/main relay. After a few hours, you can restart the engine as usual. Try to replace the relay, it may work well. Happened to me and my friends before.

Probably your spark plug get wet (water get into your spark plug), so it doesn't work quite well to give high voltage spark to burn fuel.
Clean your spark plug by removing spark plugs of 4 cylinders and clean, start engine to blow out the residue water in spark plug socket. And install spark plug into 4 cylinders

1995 toyota 4 runner starting problem once in awhile


Is the starter turning over the engine when it wont start or is nothing happening at all?
I might have your solution if I have more details.
If the engine is turning over but not starting then switch on the ignition and push it to start.If it starts you probably need a new ignition switch.

Please get back to me .Thanks
