i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.

SOURCE: Vehicle dies while driving down the road.

could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.

I would take the truck to an autoparts store and have the fault codes retrieved from the computer. Most stores will do the scan for free. I would lean toward a faulty throttle position sensor, but that's just speculation. The fault codes should narrow the problem down. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Misfires and chugs when in gear( overdrive)


Well we really need a lot more information like, engine size, year, mileage, is the check engine light on, etc but for the sake of helping you lets generalize. If you have more than 80,000 miles and if you have a slightly older model Ram then most engines will need at least spark plugs replaced by 100,000 miles or sooner. If your check engine light has come on the you will have a code stored for what sounds like a misfiring engine. Most computers will even tell you which cylinder is misfiring but if it says misfire on one cylinder then start with a basic tune up and replace all the spark plugs. A misfire can also happen because of a lean condition,(lack of fuel). This could be from a worn fuel pump, clogged injectors, bad gas, etc. Most Dodges have a fuel pressure test port so you can hook up a fuel pressure tester and road test the truck to read what that pressure is while you're driving down the road. If your fuel pressure is ok then add a quality injector cleaner to the fuel, change the spark plugs and road test. Let me know if this helps.
Thanks, Dale

My 2003 Ford truck turns over but wont fire up what could be the problem


check spark/fuel. easy way to check if there is no spark is remove a spark plug. If it is wet with fuel-no spark. To check spark, you can get a spark plug tester at any auto parts store. If no fuel, check the fuel pump relay, should be in the engine bay fuse box. Post back with your findings

95 ford Ranger Splash 3.0L I was driving the


On passenger side, inside of cab there is a fuel inertia switch mounted on the firewall by where feet go. There is a button underneath, push it. This will reset switch. Truck should get fuel now and start. These switches get weak and if passenger kicks it truck will shut down. Will still turn over but not start.

1998 F250 diesel jut quit while driving down the road.


With a diesel I'd have to look in to the fuel system. I'd check the pump first. I know from personal experience when a fuel pump dies on a fuel injected engine there is no warning... like someone reached over a turned the key off.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
