It is fuel injection and yes there are 8 spark plugs you are not seeing things.The spark plugs are paired so that as one spark plug fires on the compression stroke, the other spark plug fires on the exhaust stroke. The next time the coil is fired the order is reversed.

I have1997 4.3 ther.body i trun key rolling engr over get 50 psi wen stop rolling eng over feul psi go to 0psi right now

Does the truck run? 50 psi should be enough to start the truck. The fuel pump my not be able to hold the pressure. You may have an injector stuck open letting the fuel pressure drop. It could also be the fuel pressure regulator. It is very hard to find those problems because fuel injectors and regulator are mounted inside the intake. If you can find a way to block off the return line of the fuel pump you can see if it then holds pressure. Then try to block off the pressure line right after cranking to see if the pressure holds. This will let you know if the pump is working correctly.

Check engine light is on, hooked up computer to brain and it says it was a fuel leak sensor or fuel leak evape sensor. where is this sensor located, it also only shows fuel gauge reading of 3/4 tank full...

check ur gas cap first for proper seal and or not tightened this is the usual problem the evap system is from your fuel gas cap [gas--vent lines /gas tank-evap canister-throttle body] to ur throttle body/injectors if gas cap good need to check the lines and components for a leak disconnected /cracked broken-as well as the sensors and canister

Where is the fuel injector located on a 4cycle ford ranger 4x4

I'd guess with a 1989 you have throttle body fuel injection, which means that the "injector" is in the metal part that would be where the carburator used to be. Old cars had the air filter on top of the carburator.
you really can't see much of it.

Not recieving gas to crank.

You jimmy has no throttle body, the injectors are in the intake manifold in front of the intake ports. To have them activate, you need 62 to 65 PSI at the shredder valve. Anything different will not activate the injectors and DO NOT TRY TO START THE ENGINE BY PORING GAS THROUGH THE THROTTLE BODY. It's been know for the gas to catch fire and burn up the poppet valves, (fuel injectors) which will result in a $1,500 Spider injector replacement. If you do not have the proper fuel pressure, chances are the fuel pump will need to be replaced. When replacing the fuel pump, replace the wire harness from the fuel pump to the frame, it's only $12.00 and will keep the gremlins away. Good luck and keep me posted, the other thing too that would cause the injectors not to fire is a bad ignition modulator with is located under the rotor in the distributor. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your jimmy running again soon.
