Question about 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD
Car died while idling. Then wouldn't start back. It would turn over but wouldn't start. I live on a dirt road. Paid $500.00 to have it fixed. Picked it up and drove about three miles to durg store. Was in there bout fifteen minutes. While driving home about 3 miles away it missed a few times. Decided to let it idle in driveway to see what happened. It died and won't start back again. Only symptoms I've had in the past yr. Is while driving very slow (near idle) on dirt road it would die. But always cranked right up. Done this about 3 or 4 times within a year. Mechanic said he replaced fuel filter, he said has good fuel pressure. Said something about a switch he either replaced, cleaned or something. He replaced distributor cap. He said parts were over $300.00 :). I cracked oil cap trying to get it off about a month ago. Didn't replace it. Husband said coil has good voltage. Thankyou for any help :).
Check your airfilter. your dirt road is killing it much faster than driving it on pavement
