Question about 1988 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

Running rough 1988 ford ranger stalls when starting, then will run erractically. Once going it drives for a while then bogs down when u give it gas, if u let up on it it sometimes goes back to normal. It seems to do this when u accelerate. Then it may run for a while normally and start doing it again. We have changed plugs rotar wires and checked everything we can think of .

Sounds like it may be a fuel problem. Have you changed the fuel filter recently ?

Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. Look for position sensor with intermittent fault. Check all wire connectors for loose or dirty.

1988 ford ranger ( 4 cyl ) Fuel pump kicks on, motor starts and runs approx. 5 to10 min. and dies. Turn key back on and can't here fuel pump.


It sounds like your fuel pump is overheating. Once it gets too hot the bearings swell and the pump locks up. When it cools, they contract and the pump works again. It is also possible the fuel pump relay is having a thermal failure. You can determine this by hooking a voltmeter into the fuel pump supply wire and keep it where you can see it while it is running. If the voltage goes down and then the truck stalls, it would be the relay, if the voltage goes down after the truck stalls, it would be the fuel pump. Since the pump is only running when the engine is running, once the engine dies it'll turn off the fuel pump so it is important to pay attention to what happens first.

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new


Of coarse it does. The battery was probably okey. The Alternator has nothing to do, with starting a vehicle,but the solenoid on the starter does.
Pull the starter and put on a new solenoid.

1988 ford ranger 4 speed v6 problems keeping it running.


Fuel filter? There's also a filter on the suction intake inside the gas tank, it can get plugged up. I'd definitely try the filter if you haven't. Good luck. Have you checked the fuel psi coming from the tank? If it's fuel injection, it should be pretty high, 55 - 60 psi. Let me know if I can help.

Stalls when under load "driving"


Check the ignition module. My car would run fine until it came up to full temp and then run bad. I continued driving the car while trying to diagnose the problem. It got worse and then one day the car stalled as if it ran out of gas (still had plenty in the tank). I was able to coast it into a parking spot and called for a ride. Upon returning, I tried to start it, started right up and ran fine. On the way home it started acting up again (once it was up to temp). It turned out to be the ignition module.
