Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
My ranger will not turn start on own without starting fluid. Once it has warmed up i can turn it off and start it right back up. My fuel pump runs all the time. i have good fuel preasure and i think i have good spark. Once i get it started it runs like a champ. what do i need to do to start it without using starting fluid.
It sounds like you aren't getting fuel out of the cold start injector... remove the injector when engine is cold and switch on ignition... you should get a fine spray pattern for a few seconds... if not then there is probably a problem with the cold start circuit (Temp sensor fault), or the injector is faulty. pull electrical connectors one at a time and look for corrosion... Hope this helps...;-)
