Does a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6 truck have a crank sensor? If so, where is it located?


No it just has a distributor pickup coil, that in a sense is the crank sensor. These were a part that failed often.

My 1987 ford ranger died on my way home from class a couple days ago. it had been getting bad mpg the last few weeks and reduced power. before it broke down there was no power or response of any kind when...


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,,,

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.
