    Well it will idle all day long in park. When you put it into reverse it dies immediately. We can drive it in drive for a short period and then it will start missing and die. Then when try to restart it is very hard to start. At times will lose fuel pressure and or spark. Let sit for several minutes and it will start and repeat the same problem. Again we have replaced the fuel pump, filter and ignition module. We bought this car used for our nephew and are trying to make it safe for him when he returns from Iraq!!! He will be home within the month!!!

How is the car when put in drive? Does it almost stall or does it run fine? Almost sounds like a transmission problem. Reverse and drive put the same exact load on the engine when sitting still, so it seems unlikely it could be anything but a transmission problem. Maybe the transmission range switch is out of adjustment or bad.

    You are missing both spark and fuel when it won't start? A rare situation, but it could happen if something big is bad like the processor.

  • Chris Iarocci Feb 08, 2009

    The PRNDL switch having a short would be telling the processor the car is in gear all the time. It wouldn't cause your problem. Now the switch NOT telling the processor the car is in gear could cause a stall issue.

94 ford ranger splash 4.0 will start but dies,i don't know if it is fuel related or what. iv'e changed about everything I know.


Try the ignition module or the ignition switch itself. I have seen them before where they will only get spark in the crank mode. Also check and make sure that your wires are on the correct side of the starter solenoid and not only getting power when you are cranking.

It sounds to me like the security is shutting down your vehicle. On VATS security systems (which come on your vehicle) when it is not communicating properly it will start for 1-3 seconds and the die.

How do i change fuel filter


2002 Dodge Caravan

Fuel Filter Replacement Procedure

1. The fuel filter is located on top of the fuel tank near the fuel pump module. Fuel lines are permanently attached to filter assembly and must be replaced with the fuel filter.

2. Release pressure from fuel system by removing the fuel pump relay and start the engine and let it die. Crank the engine a couple times after it dies to relieve more of the fuel pressure

3. Disconnect negative battery cable

4. Raise and support vehicle

5. Support fuel tank with transmission jack or floor jack with large plywood board to evenly distribute the weight of the fuel tank. NOTE: It is important to distribute weight evenly to prevent damage to the fuel pump module.

6. Disconnect ground strap from fuel tank

7. Remove inboard fuel tank straps and front "T" strap fastener

8. Lower the fuel tank approximately 6 inches to access the fuel filter assembly.

9. Disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel supply connector and the fuel pump module

10. Remove the retaining bolt and remove filter assembly from vehicle.

11. Reverse removal procedure to install (Don't forget to put the fuel pump relay back )

Replace the oil sending unit,it has a safety feature of cutting off the fuel when the pressure from the oil pump is low,and the sending unit might be the problem.

94 blazer, replaced ignition modual. when engine


Most likely the cause of the ignition module burning out is because of the ignition coil, and you should try replacing the ignition coil and the ignition module both together, and be sure to clean out the distributor mounting suface, and be very certain that you do completely cover the metal mounting surface of the ignition module with the silicone grease or die-electric compound. Also be sure that you do not ov er-tighten the ignition module because you could damage it and cause a lot of similar problems.
