SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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...;-)

I have a 1996 ford ranger 6 cylinder. When I crank it up it idles ruff a minute or two. I can hold gas down a minute and it does fine from then on. After it warms up it cranks fine. What's the problem


probably find that there is a dirty injectors problem and the needles are sticking until they worm up
run the fault codes to check for other possible causes
use quality fuel injector cleaner as recommended for a few tank fulls

99 ford ranger, idles rough till it warms up,then runs good. Hard to start after it gets hot, it acts as if it is starved for fuel. Once it does crank it runs fine.


First thought: Check the idle air control valve, or whatever its Ford equivalent is. Sometimes these start to stick and cause the rough early idle that smooths out later.

Runs fine until it gets warm or hot then cuts off then cools and will recrank


Does it crank over when the engine is hot. If it does sounds like your maybe loosing fuel if so check fuel pressure if t is good check for spark could be a bad crank sensor or bad distributor.
