Question about 1987 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

It started friday when I got home, I got in to move it and it wouldn't start, it would turn over but it would just rumble like it wanted to start but it just wouldn't, I let it set til sunday and it started right off. This morning driving to work it stalled while in the middle of driving got it off the road and tried to restart it rumbled like it did on friday I tried it for about 20 minutes then it finally fired off, got it home with no more problems, what could it possibly be.

Either fuel or ignition. You'll have to check which one is not present when it stalls, or won't start. It could be the fuel filter, or it could be spark control, coil, loose wire etc. Carry a timing light with you, and see if it has spark when the problem occurs. If you have spark, then check for fuel.

    I thought maybe coil as well so I changed the coil on sunday, my next thought was the fuel filter.

Codes changing why?


There are many possible causes. Make sure you have the right firing order. Look for vacuum leaks--maybe intake gasket. Read at the link below, starying around the middle of the document.

Electrical problem on 1996 Dodge Dakota


It will drain at a rate of 21Watts X 2 = 42Watts at 12Volts = 3.5Amps. If you have an 70 Ah battery that is 20hours to totally flat from fully charged.

I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,


The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.

It's probably one of these:

1.NSS- (Neutral Safety Switch)
2.CPS- (Crankshaft Position Sensor)

My Maintenance Required light flashes


The light comes on if you've gone twice as far as is recommended since your last oil change.

You can reset it by holding the odometer button in, while turning the key from off to run (not start). Hold the button in until the light goes out. Then start it.

As for the rumbling, does it rumble when in park and the gas is pressed? What about neutral with the gas pressed?

Does the rumbling coincide with a sudden change in RPM? If so, this indicates it's a gear shift issue.
