No,, you have to get the timing set or it will do nothing , align the timing marks,, heres a easy trick, but use care when doing it ,, locate the number one plug on the cap,, (plug wire) remove that plug, and turn the motor over until your sure that its on the compression stroke,, ( I put my finger in the hole, But thats not recommended ) look to see where the rotor is pointing, if its at the number one plug,, your ok if not you need to go another 180 degrees , Once you find that point,, look at your timing marks on the crank and cam,, they should be together if not, your motor was turned over while the belt was misaligned,,

What would cause a 1990 Ford ranger to fire but not start?


Check to be sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rail. The fuel filter could be stopped up. Also I would check the nertia switch to be sure it has gotten turned off. This switch is the fuel shut off switch.

What is the spark plug gap for a 1996 Ford Ranger 3.0? When purchasing the plugs I was informed it was .44. but I am getting a slight back fire when engine is running.


0.042-0.046 is the correct gap for your spark plugs,If it is backfiring now and was not before make sure you were not sold platinum bosch plugs and if you are using factory plugs,then I be looking for a faulty spark plug.Also make sure the firing order is correct.ramundoo_2.gif

1985 Ford ranger died and will not start....getting gas..have fire to the distrubutor, will turn over but not start.


You have fire to the Distributor, but do you have fire at the plugs? The 4 cylinders had an external timing belt behind a shroud. Look to see if you broke a timing belt. Or you could have a bad stator or module in the Distributor.
