Question about 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab
There are a few things that would cause that wo all i can tell u from what u said is that u need to check for fuel pressure w/ a gauge then look up the specs online. if u lose pressure after start up the fuel pump is bad. but if it stays good as the truck dies then u do have other issues that someone would have to look it over. u could have a ignition module heating up and opening the circuit or an electronic coolant temperature sensor reading -40 or 300 starving or flooding the engine with fuel pull out a spark plug and ground the threads onto something. and check for spark as it dies. if it stops sparking then u need to look into the ignition system. if it does not then you are looking at a fuel problem or a cam positing sensor. which could shut off fuel injector pulse and ignition fire. like i said alot of componets could cause irratic behavior like this ull just have to start off with the basics fuel and fire before you can jump to any conclusions. oh and fuel filters would cause the engine to run bad but not kill it all at once and keep it from starting. one way to rule that out is to turn the key one for 2 secs then off for 6 secs and repeat a few times this turns on the fuel pump for priming iu the system. if it still does not fire up then somethin else is going on other than the fuel filter.
