SOURCE: Timing marks on 1999 Ford Ranger 2.5L.

Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the inner belt cover.

  1. Loosen the alternator retaining bolts and remove the drive belt from the pulleys. Remove the water pump pulley.
  2. Loosen and position the power steering pump mounting bracket and position it aside.
  3. Remove the four timing belt outer cover retaining bolts and remove the cover. Remove the crankshaft pulley and belt guide.
  4. Loosen the belt tensioner pulley assembly, then position a camshaft belt adjuster tool (T74P-6254-A or equivalent) on the tension spring rollpin and retract the belt tensioner away from the timing belt. Tighten the adjustment bolt to lock the tensioner in the retracted position.
  5. Remove the timing belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the crankshaft sprocket and then counterclockwise over the auxiliary and camshaft sprockets, making sure the lugs on the belt properly engage the sprocket teeth on the pulleys. Be careful not to rotate the pulleys when installing the belt.
  2. Release the timing belt tensioner pulley, allowing the tensioner to take up the belt slack. If the spring does not have enough tension to move the roller against the belt (belt hangs loose), it might be necessary to manually push the roller against the belt and tighten the bolt.

The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.
  1. Rotate the crankshaft two complete turns by hand (in the normal direction of rotation) to remove the slack from the belt, then tighten the tensioner adjustment and pivot bolts to specifications. Refer to the necessary illustrations. Make sure the belt is seated properly on the pulleys and that the timing marks are still in alignment when No. 1 cylinder is again at TDC/compression.
  2. Install the crankshaft pulley and belt guide.
  3. Install the timing belt cover.
  4. Install the water pump pulley and fan blades. Install upper radiator hose if necessary. Refill the cooling system.
  5. Position the alternator and drive belts, then adjust and tighten it to specifications.
  6. Start the engine and check the ignition timing. Adjust the timing, if necessary.

SOURCE: ford f150 spout connector makes truck run bad,

How is the condition of the wiring, at, and around the Ignition Control Unit?

I am asking that because I will usually find all of these wires, including the wires leading out to the engine, to be in poor condition. I usually find that the wires will have a lot of missing wire insulation with a lot of exposed wires that are either touching other exposed wires, or to ground. Un-twist any twisted up wires especially the wires to the Ignition Control Unit. Check and inspect the wires carefully for missing insulation especially any twisted up wires, and also check inside the wire looms for any damaged wires. I can not even begin to count how many times that I have had to get out the soldering iron and repair wiring in that location, and on those types of F-Series Ford trucks.

Key wont turn on electronics, no radio, windshield wipers, windows, instrument panel lights


Sounds like you need a new ignition switch. It is usually located on the drivers side of the steering colum about 10 inches above the floor. Make sure the key is in the off position before you start to take the switch out.. the connector on the swithch come out just squeezing the clips on the clips on the ends of the connector and pull it out of the swithch. There are 2 screws that hold the switch in place, (Besure to notice the rod that fits into the back of the switch, this rod comes down from the key mechanism) When you put the new swithch on. line the bent rod up with the hole in the back of the switch. Replace the screws, and connector and your ready to try the new swithch out. This should start the truck the way it should, with no accessories while starting. Hope I have been of assistance in curing the problem.
