No spark from the coil

I have a 1987 Ford Ranger. The truck just stopped running while I was plowing and know it will not start. It turns over and over. Fuel is getting there and we replaced the coil, cap and roter. No spark to the plugs

There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

I have a 1987 ford ranger with a 2.9 liter I pulled it in the shop to change the plugs and now it won't start its got spark from the coil but not to the plug wires


It could be a bad cap or rotor or possibly the distributor not turning. Pull the cap off and see if the rotor spins when the vehicle is being cranked.

2002 Ford Ranger runs all day starting and stopping the engine, then 1 hour later starts and sputters off after trying to start. Weather was hot and humid but never have had this problem...any ideas??


if its not damaged spark plugs or cables then it could damaged or water in distributor, If there is a black coil it could be losing current wait until night time and start vehicle you will see current light up like a christmas tree

1987 Ford Ranger. Won't fire.


Ignition module comes to mind. If you've tested for spark (holding spark plug wire near the block when cranking) and the cap and rotor are good, it seems the module is the only other area left to try. Best of luck Patrick. Please post back with any other questions.

1987 Ford Ranger that sparks but wont' start


try to replace the coil and all the spark plugs also make sure that the plugs are gapped right. that info will be on the evaporation sticker onthe core support in the front of the truck under hood. I think it is 0.004 not 100% sure on that. I hope that helps
