SOURCE: Just bought a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9liter v6. Truck

I recommend checking / replacing both the fuel and air filters. If one of them is clogged it will mess up the fuel/air mixture which could cause the truck to stall. I hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: 1987 Ford Ranger stuck in 4 wheel drive!!

Chances are the linkage for the transfer case is out of adjustment try loosening the adjuster bolt and put the 4WD shifter into the position 4WD high or low (depending upon which position it's lockup in) then lock down the adjuster bolt, try to shift out of 4wd sometimes you need to go forward and backward with the vehicle to get it out of 4wd, when you get it out of 4wd you may have to fine tune the adjustment to get it to engage and disengage smoothly it's a trial and error thing keep resetting adjuster until you get the desired effect.

I do believe the FORD is located under ther hood either on the firewall or on L/S wheel housing. Have encountered many , many faulty control modules. There came a time if you came across a Ford product with a no start, you automatically suspected it, and 90% of the time you were right.

My 1987 ford ranger died on my way home from class a couple days ago. it had been getting bad mpg the last few weeks and reduced power. before it broke down there was no power or response of any kind when...


raw gas smell is a sure indication of a fuel leak,,,the fuel filter on my ranger is directly under the drivers seat attached to the frame,,,crank it over and look under for leaking fuel,,,takes an inexpensieve tool to remove filter if thats where your leak is,,,the filter wont come off without the tool,,its cheap to purchase,,under 4 bucks,,doesnt matter if it wont start,,just crank & check for leak,,check under hood also,,,

1987 FORD RANGER WONT START AFTER JUMP STARTING IT


to eliminate the battery or alternator: go to a parts store leave your motor running. they will come outside with the tester and test your battery and alternator free. prior to this locate where your battery cable hooks to the starter and check to make sure the nut hasnt vibrated loose (try moving the cable side-to-side). u dint specify whether the engine was turning over and wouldnt start or nothing was happening.

87 ford ranger wont start without starting fluid


It sounds like you aren't getting fuel out of the cold start injector... remove the injector when engine is cold and switch on ignition... you should get a fine spray pattern for a few seconds... if not then there is probably a problem with the cold start circuit (Temp sensor fault), or the injector is faulty. pull electrical connectors one at a time and look for corrosion... Hope this helps...;-)

1987 Ford Ranger that sparks but wont' start


try to replace the coil and all the spark plugs also make sure that the plugs are gapped right. that info will be on the evaporation sticker onthe core support in the front of the truck under hood. I think it is 0.004 not 100% sure on that. I hope that helps

Did you get the right starter? Did you put the starter straight? Did you lock the screw evenly? where this noise from?You mentioned the noise like high pitch grinding noise, is it from the starter area or flying wheel?
