Though it's a bit late from when this question was asked... But... I replaced my timing belt before it broke. Like anything else on my 88 ford ranger it was the easiest thing! If your really carefull and remove the plugs! You must remove the plugs because of the compression that's there waiting to fire when you next start the car. Dissasemble the fan, fan cover, and the pulley and the plastic cover. Not exactly in that order, just what you need to access the belt. Score or mark or paint where one or two teeth of each pulley is in reference to a non moving part of the truck (you can rotate the whole thing to a convient setup by hand) make sure when you rotate the assembly it feels somewhat free you can see and feel that there is no tension on the belt in ANY area. When you have all the marks set up loosen the bolt holding the tensioner use a bar to move the tensioner out of the way just enough then tighten the bolt on the tensioner, that will keep it locked open while you simply and carefully slide out the belt then slide in the new belt keeping the marks 'still', just go slow and keep your eyes open. Maybe I just got lucky...But the theory is sound and worked for me.
Probably could use a diming light to make sure but I don't have one and the truck still runs fine. Oh and by the way... if you ever need to replace the heater core it'll take you all of 20 mins if you have even the basic of abilities and the right screw driver :)

SOURCE: 1988 ford bronco 2 wont start but engine rotates

souds like you have no power to the coil when key is on

when you crank the motor you get a boost of 12v from the starter circut thats why it only runs when you hold the ket on start and stops when you ley it go

turn your ignition on and check with a test light if you have power if not check all fuses

you can jump a wire from the + side of the battery to the + side of the coil to keep it running to get you to a garage if you cant find the problem
good luck

How do you fix wiring for 1988 ford ranger4x4 wiring to the fuel pump


Are you wanting to wire voltage or ground circuits? Remember, you have to deal with the fuel gage sending unit circuit or the fuel gage won't work.
The basics, if single wire dedicated circuit, leave a pigtail wire, both ends, as long as the problem is between the pig-tails, run a new wire, splice into pig-tails. The new wire can lay anywhere till you do some testing to see if it's going to work.
I short-handed this post a little. I wasn't sure exactly what you have going on?
