If you going to replace your timing belt,cam &crank shaft has a mark on it.if you have a distributor there a pigtail connector that you need to disconnect to set your base timing,usually its in the wiring harness/near distributor

Though it's a bit late from when this question was asked... But... I replaced my timing belt before it broke. Like anything else on my 88 ford ranger it was the easiest thing! If your really carefull and remove the plugs! You must remove the plugs because of the compression that's there waiting to fire when you next start the car. Dissasemble the fan, fan cover, and the pulley and the plastic cover. Not exactly in that order, just what you need to access the belt. Score or mark or paint where one or two teeth of each pulley is in reference to a non moving part of the truck (you can rotate the whole thing to a convient setup by hand) make sure when you rotate the assembly it feels somewhat free you can see and feel that there is no tension on the belt in ANY area. When you have all the marks set up loosen the bolt holding the tensioner use a bar to move the tensioner out of the way just enough then tighten the bolt on the tensioner, that will keep it locked open while you simply and carefully slide out the belt then slide in the new belt keeping the marks 'still', just go slow and keep your eyes open. Maybe I just got lucky...But the theory is sound and worked for me.
Probably could use a diming light to make sure but I don't have one and the truck still runs fine. Oh and by the way... if you ever need to replace the heater core it'll take you all of 20 mins if you have even the basic of abilities and the right screw driver :)

I've never done one on a Ranger, but most timing gears have alignment marks that you line up before you install the belt. Don't forget to replace the belt tensioner while you're at it.

I need timing for 1988 4seallender ford ranger truck is back firing i think its out of time, need timeing marks


The timing marks should be on the outside of the timing belt cover and on the harmonic balancer. If you are unfamiliar with the proceedure I suggest getting a Chilton or Haynes manual. You will need a timing light to check the timing. Backfiring is caused by cold air being pulled into the exhaust system. Check for holes or loose connections in your exhaust.

When should the timing belt be repalced on a 1988 Ford Ranger V6"


This truck should have a timing chain, not a belt. If the engine is running fine and there are no noises such as the chain hitting the timing cover, you are OK.
