Question about 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD

1 Answer


I have a 2.9 EFI Ford Ranger, 1986, that won't pull a vacuum. I have replaced all gaskets down to the block and the vacuum diagram is missing from the front under the hood. Can anyone scan and forward to me?? I have good compression, fire, and fuel pressure, but no vacuum. Needless to say it won't start. I have cut the exhaust to eliminate a exhaust blockage. Any ideas????

Make sure that your truck vaccume line goes into the intake manifold where there is a vacuume spiggot at the base of the carb. You may have iadvertantly hooked it up to the wrong place.
