    i can give it a shot of either and it will start and run fine and start fine after that. but i leave it for a couple of hours and it does it again.

You are obviously not getting gas, so lets start with the fuel pressure, does it have enough psi's. Also, have you done a compression check on the heads. Might simply be that. you can set up a fuel line of your own with home made i.v. bag and see if running gas your self will allow it to run.

There is no fire on our 86 ford ranger. we put a new distributor cap, module, and there is still no fire


I had the same problem..1985 Ranger. Mechanic put a new module and distibutor on it..still no fire..charged me $500. I got it home..put a new computer on it..still no fire. I tried other things but the last thing I did was replace connector that plugs into the module on the distributor. I sliced the 6 wires one at a time..plugged it in..It started immediately and is running perfect..Hope this helps..I found a TFI module harness on EBAY for under $20..

Stupid answer but the fuel filter has a check valve to stop the fuel from draining from the fuel lines .If the fuel filter is bad it would do exactly as you described

I just bought a 1987 ford ranger from an elderly women whos son just died. He had just replaced the head gasket **** didn't get it back running. The engine has spark at all plug but won't start even on...


Sounds like maybe the distributor is off. I run into that alot after that kind of engine work. Reset the distibutor to #1 TDC. I hope that I helped you. Best wishes.
