What have you checked so far ?
Is it getting spark to the plugs ?
Can you spray starting fluid into the throttle body and get it to start ?
Have you checked fuel pressure at the injectors ?

i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.

SOURCE: Fuel Problem

fuel pressure regulator? This diverts excess pressure from the rail back to the tank. When they wear out they usually stay stuck open thus diverting all pressure back to the tank. Pressure tests do not reveal this as pressure is checked before the rail not in it. I do believe you have a bad fuel regulator. They are 75US ouch.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 ford ranger 3.0L with repetitive engine codes

these engines did have some exh valve issues, service bulletin 05-26-3. one other thing to verify is that the cam synronizer (CMP) is correctly installed. if its not right on, its way off.

SOURCE: 1989 Ford Ranger 2.3l. Won't

The fuel pressure has to to 35 to 45 psi. And no low fuel pressure will not cause no injector pulse.The veicle sounds more like a idle air control problem why? because as you stated it runs rough when it does start.Get it to start sysle the key you will hear the fuel pump go on cycle it three times then start it up. when the vehicle warms up take the idle air valve out and clean it with carburator cleaner or even brake cleaner you may even want to do the throttle body itself this should help with the hard start up and rough running

SOURCE: My 87 Ford Ranger Turns Over But Won't Start.

Easy fix on this rig. Replace diatributor and tfi module together. What happens is the center contact on the dist. Pickup coil gets eroded and makes crappy contact to the tfi resulting in intermittent running or no contact to the tfi resulting in failure to start.

The evaporative system failed on emissions for my 87 Ford Ranger 2.9l engine, any suggestions what might be wrong


It can't be filled up because it leaks, or won't take anymore gas? Check the hose from the fuel filler to the tank for kinks or restrictions, if you have leaks, fill it up and trace the leak. Either problem will cause EVAP codes, hard starts, and cause vehicle to die.

Transmission install 89 ford ranger


You should be able to rent a spline alignment tool from the parts house where you got transmission. I'm assuming you have a manual transmission so the clutch pad doesn't want to cooperate? I think even with an automatic it's much the same.

My 89 ford ranger will some times stall and not start back.You can turn key but fuel pump doesn't start but next day it may run fine


I would suspect a bad eec relay. These used to go out commonly, and the eec relay is what powers up the fuel pump relay.

Fuel caps have breather holes in them - once clogged the fuel tank is sucked vacuum and the engine stalls. Check the fuel tank cap for clogged breather holes.

My 89 Ranger will some times start but act like its out of fuel and die then not restart. Installed new fuel pump and filter and still have same problem.


I would check the fuel pressure on it. You may have bad fuel injectors or a leak. If that checks out, it could be bad plugs. Can you get any codes? Check engine light on? Feel free to contact me back. I am here to help. Thanks for using FixYa.

I bought a 89 2.9L v6 ford ranger that had been sitting for two years. it started right up and i drove it around for three weeks but the it died suddenly while driving, i got it to start a couple of times...


i hope you changed all the fluids. New oil,coolent,trans. oil and draind all the old fuel. if not the fuel injecters need to be cleaned but first check to see if the crankshaft can be turned if you can you may save that engine.
