Why is my 1987 ford ranger acking iike its loosing fule pressurs win diving


It may BE losing fuel pressure, Robert. Check the fuel pressure and flow rate at the fuel rail. Filter, plugs, and cap have nothing to do with fuel pressure - your fuel pump and pressure regulator are the only things that can change fuel pressure very much.

What would make my 1987 ford ranger run good at start , go for 5 to ten miles and loose all power . i have already replaced fuel filter


check for codes this may help if their is one, some codes will set without turning on the check engines light.have the fuel pressure checked with a gage as a bad fuel pump will act this way. have the tps(throttle position sensor) checked for voltage dropouts as you move the throttle. the catalytic converter could be plugging up and need replacing. if you have an ignition problem usually a miss will be noticed. on other thing I can think of is possibly a transmission problem, I can only recall one that I`ve run across that this was the cause.

Where is the fuel filter located. Can this be easily replaced or does a shop need to replace it? (1987 Ford Ranger XLT V6)


That depends, some have filters in the tank. But most of them are under the truck running along the frame. You should be able to get a haynes or chiltins manual and it will tell you where it is.

Does the 1987 4x4 ford ranger with the 2.9 v6 have one or two fuel pumps?


It has 2, one in the the tank and another inline between the tank and engine. Little tip: if your not getting fuel to the engine try replacing the filter first. it's a lot easier and less expensive and most likely where the problem is. I have an 1988 Ranger that clogs the filter almost every time I run the tank dry.

How do i change fuel filter on 1987 ford ranger 2.9 liter


look under truck at drivers side door for the fuel lines. they will go into filter there and back out of filter there.you're looking for a round canister,you'll need to release the pressure by removing the gas acp also.there will be a plastic clip on both sides of the filter holding the fuel lines into the filter. pull those clips out with needle nose pliers, install the filter with the flow towards the front of motor, reinstall those clips unless new ones came with the new filter.keep in mind that you are under the truck looking up at filter, eye protection is a must!!!! hope this helps!!
