Question about 1992 Ford Ranger
I am thinking the timing belt might have slipped, what doesn't make sense to me is that the truck was running up until I parked it. I turned the key off, but when I tried to start it again it tries to start then dies. It backfires when trying to crank. It's getting fuel, and it sparks on every cylinder. Any alternative ideas? It's 2.3L motor.
It does sound like the timing belt may have jumped,See if you put a timing light on the #1 wire to verify this,You will need someone to turn the key to turn the motor over while you check it.or if you can see the cam gear,just turn the crank to top dead center on the compression stroke and look to see if the cam mark lines up with the mark on the head.
Please rate this solution.
