Question about 2002 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

My 2002 xlt ranger 3.0 v6 flex fuel eng. 115k mi. I start out and it runs good I can run it up to 5000 rpm and it runs good after it warms up to normal temp. if I run it up to 3000 rpm it will just shut down like there is no fuel.I leave off the accelerator a little and it runs good again. I took it to auto zone ,they can't check it there is no ck. eng. light coming on they said change the fuel filter. I don't think that is the problem.

You could, but I would also check, spark plug wire's and ignition coil pack, and if that checks good, do a cylinder compression test, if all good replace fuel injector then.

Jeep liberty 2002 will not idle when you first start it if you make it run at about 2000 rpm for about 3 min it will stay running


Check temperature sensor. I don't remember if your vehicle has two (one for the gauge, one for the computer) or a single unit that feeds both. If seperate (your parts house should know this) change the one that feeds info to the computer.
Essentially this sensor does the job of the choke on the carburetor on non-fuel injected vehicles, by allowing additional fuel into engine on cold-starts. After engine comes up to operating temp, it reverts back to normal run mode... (why you need to warm it up at excessive rpm before driving!) Good luck!

Sounds like your fuel pump is going out on you. Check your fuel pressure. You should have 40 psi when the key is in "on" position. You should have no less than 5 psi under that when it's running.
