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.

Car ran out of gas and has been hard to crank every since. I don't hear the fuel pump prime but I do hear the relay click. There is no gas expelled or pressure coming from schrader valve and also batt


the fuel pump is burnt out. the pump uses the fuel to cool itself. running low fuel the pump heats up and burns the plastic gears inside. thats why the fuse blew. need to take out gas tank to change pump.

I changed my fuel pump because it has 260,000 miles on it and truck would cut off when It got warm. Now it wont start after I replaced pump. What do I need to do to get it to start again?


Did you put at least 5 gallons in the tank so the pump will prime properly? Do you hear the new pump running for 1 second when the key is turned to run? Do this remove the Schrader valve core from the fuel supply rail to the injectors on the engine fuel pressure test port (don't loose it) and repeatedly cycle the key from off to run, do not crank the engine, this will help to prime the electric fuel pump, but have at least 5 gallons in the tank before starting the process. Make sure someone watches the fuel pressure test port so when fuel starts to flow you stop the priming process before everything is covered in gas. Also a fuel pump doesn't cause the system you described, an ignition control module and stator cause that and are a known problem in this year of truck. Another problem is the ignition starter switch comes apart.

I have a 97 breeze that sometimes wont start. then a day later it will start right up. Also sometimes it sputters while driving and wants to die but then just keeps on going. Could this be a fuel line...


when it don't start check to see if the car has spark. Also listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump in the gas tank working. Fuel pump should make a buzzing noise when you first turn the key on for a few seconds. If the car has spark but you can't hear the fuel pump the pump is probably your problem. If you can hear the pump and have no spark I would check the crank sensor. If you cant hear the fuel pump be sure to check the fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse box before changing the fuel pump. Good luck

Running fine. Died and wont start. Cranks fine


can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

2001 ranger wont start after sitting


check the fuel pump and see is working properly, if the pump is good than the problems will be the crank sensor is faulty. what crank sensor does it sense the turning of the flywheel and it send a single to ecu, and ecu send a flow of power to turn on the fuel pump as long it sense the flywheel turning.

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...

Fuel pump is most likely the cause. Probably just barely making the required pressure to start. Needs to maintain 60-66 psi while cranking to start.
