Just bought a 1988 Ford Ranger 2.9 liter v6 today. On my way home from the gentleman's house whom i bought it from, the truck starts bucking and sputtering. When accelerating at highway speeds there seems...


well i'd call the basterd and ask him what he wants to do about it , or take him to court as he did not disclose these problems. Or did he? I would check the fuel system for leaks which causes engine to get air and less fuel than it requires or check tank for leak and also check motor for bad vacuum lines and intake gaskets. spark plugs check.

Truck runs like ****


You have checked the fuel pressure? Do you have a check engine light? As for the tank filling up the wrong one, that is caused from a bad tank select valve on the frame rail.

My son ran my truck out of gas. Its a 1988 F250


first, is this a diesel? if it is there is a line or oring loose allowing it to **** air--diesels dont like leaks like that and there is a whole procedure for voiding the air from the lines on diesels. next could be the in tank pump and also does it have duel tanks? does the duel tank switch work? running out of fuel with in tank pumps can burn up the pump (the fuel itself provides lubrication and cooling for the pump, gas or diesel) and of course check the filter, running out and refilling could have disturbed trash in the tank

Front tank sputters and truck dies


It definitely has something to do with the fuel flow from the front tank. It may be the fuel pump again, the older F-150's with two tanks soemtimes have problems with the fuel pumps because of the extra pull from two tanks, and the switching between them.

You could check the fuel filter (assuming there are two fuel filters, one for each tank)...but otherwise it sounds like a fuel pump problem, or possibly an obstruction in the switching mechanism for the two tanks, or an obstruction in the line itself. Hope that helps!
