Replace the relay, have a friend sit in the vehicle, open the gas tank, place your ear near the tank opening and have your friend turn the truck on but not over. If you dont hear a slight buzz (after replacing the relay) then you probably need a fuel pump. If you do hear the buzz, your filter may be clogged.

I believe those had an inertia switch as well on passenger side near center hump, up close to firewall at or near end of carpet, that may have tripped as well. Push plunger down to reset.

    if it doesn't feel like its' resetting, check voltage in & out of that switch to be sure. If no voltage on one side, check it when pushing it in, and see.

1987 ford ranger v6 EFI doesnt seem to be getting gas to the cylinders to fire?


Is there gas in the vehicle? Not funny, could be a faulty fuel gauge! If known to have fuel, under the hood ( with the key on) find the fuel rail test valve(looks like a tire air valve) push in the needle(wear safety glasses)if gas comes out you know your getting gas that far.(also check fuses for fuel pump etc.) Need to install a fuel gauge on the test valve and check pressure. If pressure is O.K. need to check fuses for injectors(pulse) Good luck best regards.

1987 Ford Ranger just stopped. Think it is a fuel problem. What should I check it has electronic fuel injection?


Check if you have pressure in the fuel system that you can check the pressure check port, or disconnect the return hose that is leaving the pressure regulator if you have gasoline in these parts is no problem of fuel pump . Also you have to check if power is being supplied to the terminal connecting wing fuel pump because it could be electrical problem and check the fuse and relay fuel pump. Thanks and good luck

Fuel pump on my 1987 ford ranger has no power


There is a Fuel Pump relay. Not sure if Ford has a Relay Box under the Hood though. There are also Fuses that Control some items of the Fuel System. Try the Relays first and see what you have.
