I had a similar prob on my chevy truck and it was the ignition module keeping it from firing.

Cant get fire to distribitor on a 1988 ford ranger could coil cause it

Assuming old-style setup (not sure when coil packs became standard), your task is to check that:
1. Battery power is on one lead of coil.
2. Other lead from coil is connected to points in distributor
3. Points do indeed connect and disconnect when engine turns
4. Condenser is ok (not shorted)
Check points gap when fully open. Bridge points when open and check for spark when you open that bridge connection.

My 1991 ford mustang has fire at the coil and the distributor but it will not start

You said,"My 1991 ford mustang has fire at the coil and the distributor but it will not start".
But, you did not mention what size Engine your mustang has nor the method you used to Check [said 'fire']
If the spark gets that far (to the distibutor) it is of no matter-IF it doesnt continue on from there then, OF COURSE it won't start. You started off on the right track, now all you need to do is Keep on going! What we need to find out is:
Is the 'fire' getting to the sparkplugs?
If not, then you will NOT HAVE combustion which is absolutely Necessary to 'fire off'/start your engine.
Also, you didnt mention what the 'fire' (i.e. spark) looks like. What color is the spark is it yellow-orange or cold hot blue white? Is it Well defined or sloppy and wide? Is it constant or is it erratic?

91 ford ranger 3.0 has fuel and fire wont start

Hopefully, it is just the battery. Try and jump start it to see if that works. If you do jump it successfully, drive it immediately to your preferred auto parts store and have them install a new battery.

If that doesn't work, there could be an issue with one of the components of the ignition system (ignition coil, distributor, etc). A problem here could prevent enough energy being transferred to the spark plug to ignite the engine. If it isn't the battery, then you should have it towed in to a mechanic.

Everything sounds good except where you put the rotor pointing at. at tdc the piston would have already fired. you need to readjust the distributor. also to get it sit in place you have to move the oil pump rod. just sounds like your one tooth off

1992 Ford Ranger XLT V6 wont start without ether

first go to an auto partstore and have the code checked. most do it for free. could be coil, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter or even a bad gas cap. but the dianogstic test should pin point the problem.
