it can happen from a various of reason How about an alternator.if it not check the fuel pump. check the distributer cap and spark plugs.. If the car doesn't turn over then you might want to take it into the shop. Check also the solenoid.

SOURCE: Timing problem with 1985 Ford Ranger

more than likely it is a timing problem,or the valves are not seating right,diesel in petrol ??air leak on inlet manifold without having the motor in front of me its difficult to diagnose.This is an older vehicle of potential classic possibilities.Therefore because its so valuable i would suggest you call a local mobile mechanic.One with a few years under his belt who has worked on these vehicles when they were new,and if he doesnt do it right kick his zimmer frame away

1985 Ford Ranger 2.3 starts and idles good. But when put in gear dies until it reaches full temp.


Hmm...........

Probably carb? Automatic choke not working? Remove air filter and spray carb with cleaner, Make sure all parts move freely. With engine cold, check automatic choke position. Start and check function as it warms up.

Why does my 1985 ford ranger keeps dying or stalling out


Based on your info you should be able to duplicate the problem on demand.
When the engine won't start, you need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
Check to see if the plugs are firing, and if not check the coil, and see if the carb has fuel in it.
Ford products built in the 1980s had problems with the ignition module mounted on the side of the distributor but you may have replaced it already.

1985 Ford ranger died and will not start....getting gas..have fire to the distrubutor, will turn over but not start.


You have fire to the Distributor, but do you have fire at the plugs? The 4 cylinders had an external timing belt behind a shroud. Look to see if you broke a timing belt. Or you could have a bad stator or module in the Distributor.

The mechanic should check on the idle .Because the Idle of the truck is adjusting by it self . That causes the truck to stop .check the Idle then lock it up to so that it will not adjust until it will make the truck stop .the main reason why the truck stop and pressure guage going down steadily is that no fuel enters the fuel pump when it adjust Idle by it self . It adjust by closing way or blocking the fuel to pass and go to the engine.then the engine dies .
