Do these Fords have a crankshaft position sensor? What about a faulty ignition module?

How do I go about sitting the timimg on a 94 ford ranger lt pickup


On the 4 cyl engine, you line up the crank pulley with the timing mark and the cam gear with the pointer on the timing cover.
On V6 engines the cam and crank gear dots point at each other. 6 oclock for the cam and 12 oclock for the crank.

98 ford ranger, cranks, but does not start sometimes


With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

2001 Ford Ranger cranks but doesn't start periodically


If it has a distributor it is possible that the reluctor / stator has a broken wire. preventing the computer from firing the engine. This can be intermitant and would require the removal of the distributor. If the engine has a crank shaft sensor then this may be a possible place for a broken wire or bad connection. Location for these can be on the harmonic damper at the from=nt of the engine or located at or near the flywheel......

Starting issues 94 ranger 3.0


You should've changed the coil when you replaced the starter. If you could only do one at a time, I would've gone with the coil first. There is a brass plate that gets charred with carbon build up. Your banging on the coil shakes some of it off, re-establishing a good connection. You can sometimes get away with taking it apart and cleaning all off with a mini-grinder or rotary wire brush. This will confirm it for you and buy you time until payday or your next day off.

Crankshaft alignment on 94 ford ranger? I can't find a reference point on the crankshaft gear for the timing belt, my truck will start, but the timing is severely off. HELP!


Put the harmonic damper back on with the timing pointer mounted. Rotate engine until #1 is at TDC with both intake and exhaust valves closed. Timing pointer should be very close to 0 degrees. You should find a mark on the crank gear pointing straight up toward the cam gear. Rub the gear with a rag and acetone or alcohol to remove any varnish/oil buildup. When you find the marks on the crank gear, cam gear and auxiliary shaft gear, clean them and paint them with day glo orange so you can really see them next time. I'm assuming you have the 2.3L 4 cyl. engine since you said "timing belt".

Takes time to start up a 1999 Ford Pick Up Ranger


Check the MAP sensor and the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Before you try to start the engine, cycle the ignition 3 times to the run position for 10 seconds apart and then try starting the car. You may be lossing the fuel pressure prime. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to hlep.

99 Ranger- Consistant coil pack issues....


What is the engine size? Have you checked the ignition module? Check the output of the crank sensor at the ignition module to verify wiring integrity. The signal is shielded so insure there is no break in the insulation.

99 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0L V6 Intermittent ignition


i would have to suspect a crank sensor and-or connection there.
i see you checked it with an "o-scope" but i would be willing to
bet you dont have injector pulse either. without the crank signal, there is no rpm input, the pcm doesnt even know its cranking!
i have replaced many crank sensors with this intermitent concern....

Engine cranks, but does not start


My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.
