Question about 1987 Ford Ranger

2 Answers

I was driving home the other day in my 1987 Ford Ranger when it died on me. I checked the ignition coil but was getting no power so i changed the control module and the ignition coil. I still aint getting any power to the distributer. I have power going in the ignition coil but none coming out. What else could be the problem? Oh and it does have gas.

Distributor contact to the tfi module is probably corroded and not making contact. Replace distributor.

94 4.0 dies while driving will start after sitting a while


Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

raw gas smell is a sure indication of a fuel leak,,,the fuel filter on my ranger is directly under the drivers seat attached to the frame,,,crank it over and look under for leaking fuel,,,takes an inexpensieve tool to remove filter if thats where your leak is,,,the filter wont come off without the tool,,its cheap to purchase,,under 4 bucks,,doesnt matter if it wont start,,just crank & check for leak,,check under hood also,,,

Just bought a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9liter v6. Truck will start and run for a minute then it dies. Tried replacing Ignition Coil, that wasn't the problem. No lights come on to warn you it just dies.


I recommend checking / replacing both the fuel and air filters. If one of them is clogged it will mess up the fuel/air mixture which could cause the truck to stall. I hope this helps you out.

1987 Ford Ranger. Won't fire.


Ignition module comes to mind. If you've tested for spark (holding spark plug wire near the block when cranking) and the cap and rotor are good, it seems the module is the only other area left to try. Best of luck Patrick. Please post back with any other questions.

1987 Ford Ranger that sparks but wont' start


try to replace the coil and all the spark plugs also make sure that the plugs are gapped right. that info will be on the evaporation sticker onthe core support in the front of the truck under hood. I think it is 0.004 not 100% sure on that. I hope that helps
