Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a Ford Ranchero(Falcon UTE) Outback 1998 Model. It is a very nice vehicle but I experience a problem, the problem is the following. For no unforeseen reason she sometimes just cut's out especially when I travel on a uneven road. Also at time after driving on a even road I switch off the engine and when I want to fire up again there is NO starting up. the starter motor turns the engine but it seems that the fire on the spark plugs is in absence. I played with the remote as well as switching between the tanks and \I would like to make myself believe I heard a switch clicking and then she starts up again as if there was no fault what so ever. I heard of the Back stop fuel cut-off switch. If someone could help me in lay mans terms indicate to me where to find it. And in your opinion could it be the cause of my problem? ANY FURTHER ADVISE PLEASE AS I ENJOY MY TRUCK WHEN SHE RUNS.

SOURCE: Ford Escort 1998 fuel pump not working.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

SOURCE: truck cuts off while driving down the road.

Replace the TFI module. Ford back in 1986 thur 1993 had problems like the one you wrote about. TFI module gets hot and shuts car or truck off then when it cools sometmies starts and sometimes not.

SOURCE: car cut off while driving wouldnt start back up

Replace the switch.Yes they can be faulty.If that doesn't solve the problem then your fuel pump is causing it to trip out.change the fuel pump.good luck.

1997 ford ranchero outback heat gage not on hot but cuts out starter


Didn't find 97 ranchero in US automotive database. Is this a US vehicle? I looked for wiring diagram? I'd have to check starter motor wiring circuits and make sure engine isn't trying to seize when it gets hot or starter motor.

Not listed: Ford Ranchero Outback 1997


if it has the rear bumper collision cut off switch check that. it may be intermittent.
short it out or open which ever it needs.
find where it leads to engine /computer as it may be there too.
check the ignition switch and the wiring firewall distribution box.
the hard part is you are likely loosing ground somewhere.
does it have vehicle entry alarm if so see about bypassing.
