Question about 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD

1 Answer

I have an 1986 ford ranger, fuel injection, automatic. I can start the truck, but then it tries to die when I shift to reverse, or when i switch to drive and try to give it the gas. Then, the other day it wouldn't accelerate when i gave it the gas and died and wouldn't start up again until the next day.

U need to verify the fuel pressure during this time that is acts up.if the fuel pressure drops below 30 psi then u may have a faulty fuel pump.you can get a fuel pressure tester from advance auto,Install the tester on the test valve on the fuel rail.Your truck has two fuel pumps but the main supply pump is mounted on the frame rail underneath the drivers side floor pan.

Why does my 91 ranger dies when put into reverse?


bypass where the automatic transmission lines go into the radiator, many fords will have a plugged up trans cooler that will restrict flow and stall the motor when shifting into reverse. if you find the bypass fixes the problem then install an external trans cooler.

86 Ford Ranger 2.3L TurboDiesel won't start


This sounds like your problem.....Try this, only takes 5 minutes and probably whats wrong. The same thing happened to me, it was running perfect and died. There's something called an Inertia switch (google how to find it) the older rangers and bronco II's have them. It may think you have gotten in a accident and this device stops the fuel pumps. I literally pressed the reset button on the top of it and my truck started right back up after not being able to start at all.
