Question about 2011 Ford Ranger 2.3
Engine will not start
Posted by Anonymous on
Check your fuses also youll be suprised. The alternator runs down the battery if its bad or it could be the starter and ect. A multimeter would be something you could use also to check battery and the wires.

Hi, i would first try replacing the glow plugs as if you have problems starting from cold then this is the cause you can usually tell if it is the glow plugs if after running it up till temperature then turn it off and then start it again strait away if it starts fine when upto temp then this indicates that the glow plugs need replacing.
If it still has the problem when upto running temp then the chances are the fuel lines and injectors need cleaning.
You can buy a fuel additive and using this will solve the problem just pour it into tank then give it a good run about 3 hours then see what its like at starting if this solves the problem then i would put this into my fuel once every couple of months.
If on the other hand you still have problems then the chances are it could be either the diesel pump failing or could be even worse like head gasket.
If this is the case then this will need testing at a garage as they have testing kits to test if their are any gasses getting into the water system this indicating a head gasket problem.
If you need further assistance then post back.
Hope this is some help to you

check for vacume leaks on intake and other vacume hoses. random misfire is also usually a clogged fuel filter or pressure regulator. could also be a cam or knock sensor. are their any trouble codes.

SOURCE: my ford truck will not start.
You don't state if the truck cranks or not I assume it doesn't since the starter was replaced. You need to check the solenoid and see if it gets current when the key is turned to start. If it does, does the current go thru and to the starter. If not replace the solenoid. If you get no current to the solenoid check the nuetral safety switch or clutch switch and see if the current goes to the switch and then thru. That will tell you if a wire is broken or the electrical part of the ignition switch or the safety switch is bad. Good Luck!!
