There should be a fuse panel in the engine compartment. Diagram I'm looking at (here: has 36 fuses and 3 or 4 circuit breakers. Fuse #1 is 15 Amp for ignition and fuel injectors. Check this fuse. The relay box is under the dash, but i don't see any relays for ignition.
If fuse #1 is good, check for voltage at the coil pack. If no voltage at the coil pack, have someone jiggle the key in the ignition while checking voltage at the coil to see if the voltage is intermittent. If yes, you have a bad switch. If no, I would next replace the coil. If you don't have a meter, you can use a simple 12 volt test light for this test. Get one from your parts store--it looks like a screwdriver that's pointed at one end and has a cable with an alligator clip. Hook the clip to a metal point on the engine or firewall and touch the tip to the + side. The light inside should come on if the coil has power applied from the ignition switch.
So these are the parts I'm looking to check--fuse, switch, coil. The coil is $30 and is a better investment than the switch, unless you're sure you have a bad switch.

94 ford ranger splash 4.0 will start but dies,i don't know if it is fuel related or what. iv'e changed about everything I know.

Try the ignition module or the ignition switch itself. I have seen them before where they will only get spark in the crank mode. Also check and make sure that your wires are on the correct side of the starter solenoid and not only getting power when you are cranking.

Hi Paula,

You didn't mention if you changed the plug wires.

You mentioned replacing the camshaft sensor. Have you checked the Crankshaft Position Sensor? Or the Mass Air Flow Sensor (may need cleaning)? Or the Throttle Position Sensor?

Have you checked compression on non firing cylinders? Likely has blown head gasket between these two cylinders if located side by side.
