Question about 2003 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

2004 Ranger XLT 4x4 (4.0 V6) fuel pump/system problem

Ranger has been worked on 4 times by the same place in the last 4 weeks. The fuel pump has been replaced twice, as well as having a new fuel filter, relay, pigtail and wiring. New plugs and wires were installed on the second trip back. It is starting to run rough again. This is what happens before it just will not start. When driving down the road, it starts to hesitate ever so slightly. The initial problem was that it would turn over but not start. A Ford dealership ran a diagnostic before taking it back to the independent mechanic the third time. Dealership said it was fuel pump code. I have no clue what is going on, but I am about ready to drive it off a cliff. ANY ideas and suggestions would be appreciated.

If the pump has been changed twice its probally not the pump. could be the fuel pressure regulator. the computer will still throw a fuel code but in order to really diagnose the problem they would have to test the fuel pressure.

A guy just told me that there is a internal fuel pump and a external fuel pump on my 1988 ford ranger xlt 2.9 4x4. is this true?


In some applications, yes there is two.


On the 2.3L and the 2.9L engines to model year 1988 the electric fuel pump system used on these EFI engines consisted of two fuel pumps: a low pressure boost pump mounted in the fuel tank, and a high pressure fuel pump mounted on the frame rail.
The low pressure electric fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and is a part of the fuel gauge sending unit.

first go to an auto partstore and have the code checked. most do it for free. could be coil, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter or even a bad gas cap. but the dianogstic test should pin point the problem.

I would change the filter first, if that doesnt help check the fuel pressure. if it doesnt hold around 30psi fuel pump could be bad.

Sounds like your fuel pump is going out on you. Check your fuel pressure. You should have 40 psi when the key is in "on" position. You should have no less than 5 psi under that when it's running.
