i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.

SOURCE: where is the fuel filter located on 1984 ford

Hi. Your inline fuel filter is a molded plastic mesh type, designed to protect the electrical fuel boost pump from contamination. It is located on the left hand side frame rail about 2 feet away from the rear of the fuel boost pump.

I need to ask a few questions and please do not think I am insulting you.
How much gas is in tank?
Is the gas good gas and not with water in it? Can you take any gas from the hose into a clear container and wait a minute and see if separation occurs?
Can you see gas squirt into carburetor when you pull on the accelerator cable or push the lever in on the carb? If you can see it..it is going into the intake and .most likely bad gas.
Lastly and another problem area is the fuel jet inside the carb is stuck or has an obstruction such as goo from bad gas?
This gives you some ideas on what to look for and thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 86 Ford Ranger 2.3L TurboDiesel won't start

This sounds like your problem.....Try this, only takes 5 minutes and probably whats wrong. The same thing happened to me, it was running perfect and died. There's something called an Inertia switch (google how to find it) the older rangers and bronco II's have them. It may think you have gotten in a accident and this device stops the fuel pumps. I literally pressed the reset button on the top of it and my truck started right back up after not being able to start at all.

Ford Ranger Carburetor Problem


Usually there is an electric heater on the side of the carb that opens the choke. You may want to check the heater to see if it has voltage and if it is working.
The linkage for the choke can get sticky or dirty and not work. Basic gravity and a spring opens the choke so the linkage must move freely.

22004 ford ranger not getting fuel, replaced fuel pump 2 times in 16 months plus carb overhaul, what to check next?


Sometimes there is a plastic strainer in the gas tank and when they break down they will clog the fuel pick up. After the suction stops the pieces settle until the next time.

Ever replace the fuel filter or check for fuel getting through the filter?

Besides the inertia sensor which needs to be manually reset, some of these motors had an inline fuel pressure regulator. Another area can be a crankshaft sensor which adjusts fuel pressure to RPM.

Believe the inline pressure regulator works off vacuum so the "check engine light" would not diagnose. On the other hand, the crankshaft sensor should generate a trouble code. Curious as to what you find.

Why does my 1985 ford ranger keeps dying or stalling out


Based on your info you should be able to duplicate the problem on demand.
When the engine won't start, you need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
Check to see if the plugs are firing, and if not check the coil, and see if the carb has fuel in it.
Ford products built in the 1980s had problems with the ignition module mounted on the side of the distributor but you may have replaced it already.

1984 Ford Ranger- will not idle at all, will start and run with your foot on the pedal at high RPM's- I installed new carb so that's not it was acting the same before- I bought it for a huntin


Check for a vacuum leak somewhere. It could b the pcv valve on the valve cover or the hose going to the brake booster. Take the hose off the brake booster and plug it. then start the engine. It might also b the base gasket under the carb.
