SOURCE: no fuel pressure on 2.9 litre ford ranger

is the pumps running have you checked fuel comes out of it? if it does you will have to move on further along fuel line check next connection (fuel filter maybe) check there is stuff coming through there. Next goto other side of filter check there. Just go along the fuel line checking for fuel pressure. if there is fuel going all the way to the rail check the pressure regulator it may be stuck open therefore the gas would be getting pumped to the rail and going straight back to the tank i.e. no pressure.

SOURCE: 98 ford explorer wont start theft light on while

It sounds like the vehicle is in theft mode,did you use a different key? Does the theft light blink really fast with the key off?If the passive anti-theft system has been activated the computer will have to be reset in order to get the vehicle running again.

SOURCE: wont start

I have the same problem. There is an updated p.c.m. that controles the injecter pulse widthas at lower pulse. First replace your fuel filter(the check valve is stuck returning fuel back to the tand and letting minimal fuel to the engine. Next look at your coolant temp. senser and make sure it is not corroded it is vital that the senser give perfect input or the vehicle will run lean or rich. Try these before buying the updated computer. My truck run, great after i replaced these items, I know it is frustrateing it pissed me off because ther where no codes in the p.c.m. period

I would check the EEC relay, and the fuel pump relay too. But it sounds like the ignition module is loosing power, or the pump is not getting power after the engine starts.
The computer must see oil pressure or RPM to power the pump relay after the engine starts.

Why 92 ford f150 wont start

does it crank over and not fire if so check for spark if tou have spark check the fuel rail for a tire valve looking device if cap is still on remove and press shrader valve while someone cranks engine if you have no fuel spraying out of this in great volume check fuses for fuel pump try swaping fuel pump relay with horn relay if these things do not work look under or just above carpet line on passengerside floorboard in center area near heater box for the inertia switch if red button can not be pushed unplug and jump plug with small wire and crank over if it starts this is your problem if you do not hear fuel pump at this point fuel pump is bad

I replaced the battery the 98 ford expedition still won't start it will crank but will not turn over

If it is fuel injected check for fuel pressure at the fuel rails. If it has a carburetor then try pouring a little gas in the carburetor and see if it will start. If you have no pressure at the fuel rails or the motor starts after adding fuel directly then the problem is the fuel pump.

I have an 1986 ford ranger, fuel injection, automatic. I can start the truck, but then it tries to die when I shift to reverse, or when i switch to drive and try to give it the gas. Then, the other day...

U need to verify the fuel pressure during this time that is acts up.if the fuel pressure drops below 30 psi then u may have a faulty fuel can get a fuel pressure tester from advance auto,Install the tester on the test valve on the fuel rail.Your truck has two fuel pumps but the main supply pump is mounted on the frame rail underneath the drivers side floor pan.

1994 ranger fuel problem

check your fuel pressure, also check to see if there is a booster pump, some ford rangers have a booster pump inline... fuel injected units need to have at least 35-45 psi some even higher around 50 psi...

Wont start, 97 Ranger 2.3 cranks stumbles and dies

If it has fuel pressure at the fuel rail then it is more than likely the computer. You can unscrew the cap on the rail and push the center in with a knife or something and there should be fuel that sprays out. If not then you are not getting fuel to that point.

1993 ford ranger difficult to start

This double crank you say works in a couple of seconds? Try this; Turn the key on and wait a couple of seconds before cranking. It may be it takes a couple of seconds for the rail pressure to build up. The fuel pump shouldn't have to refill the fuel system but pressure recovery could be hindered by the fuel filter no passing fuelfreely enough.. Age of fuel filter?

1992 ford ranger 3.0

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.
