87 ford ranger wont start without starting fluid

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...;-)

87 ford ranger wont start replaced pulugs and wires


Common Sense - tells you that replacing spark
plugs & wires,while they may be an issue, or due
to be replaced,they won't all fail at once & cause
a no start

You need to check for fuel pressure at the motor
with a gauge & check for spark or injector pulse, while
cranking the motor with the starter.

Compression has to be on all cylinders & any timing
belt or chain in place & working correctly

Once in a while my 87 ford ranger will not start. it happens sparatically. i turn the ignition and it cranks over but will not fire. come back a little later and it starts no problem, i don't think its...


i would 1st consider fuel pressure and then when the last tune up was look to make sure the wires and vacuum lines are not dry-rotted and the wires are not rubbing up against body ground try bending the wires and lines for cracks etc.and have a fuel pressure test done .

Transmission fluid stick


No the manual transmisson does not have a stick. on the transmisson their are two plugs. One for draining and one for filling. In order to check the fluid, pull the higher plug out and feel with a finger in that hole for fluid. To set the level to the correct level you would need to drain and refill the trans. If no leaks are present you should be OK
