94 ford ranger splash 4.0 will start but dies,i don't know if it is fuel related or what. iv'e changed about everything I know.


Try the ignition module or the ignition switch itself. I have seen them before where they will only get spark in the crank mode. Also check and make sure that your wires are on the correct side of the starter solenoid and not only getting power when you are cranking.

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls


Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

Starts then quits


Was there fuel pressure before you changed everything? It could also be the pressure regulator sticking or bad. When you crank it over and let off the key you should hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds and then shut off. If it is doing that then I would be looking to see if you have likes hooked up wrong at the back of the engine or try replacing the pressure regulator.

Try the ignition control module located under the distributor cap $30 - $60. This is one of two parts on this truck that will cause it to not run or shut down after running for only a short time. The other is the fuel pump I think it is safe to rule that out as your problem
