Due to the age of the vehicle or milage on the engine, it more than likely has a worn timing chain that needs replacement. Have you changed any of the ignition wires lately? They may be on incorrectly or are old with too much resistance. Use an ohms meter to check this. Good luck!

Check the ignition timing as it appears that the firing order is wrong. Make sure that the cam shaft is turning as it could be the belt broken

Fuel caps have breather holes in them - once clogged the fuel tank is sucked vacuum and the engine stalls. Check the fuel tank cap for clogged breather holes.

It back fired and when i started up it wont idle, runs at 60 mph without using gas


Don't know what caused the backfire, but often the pressure from the backfire causes a vacuum line to come off (usually a large one; brake booster, PCV or similar size). this lets extra air past the throttle butterfly and raises the idle speed. find your vacuum leak and the idle speed should return to normal.

1985 ford ranger runs good for a couple of days


Is it carburated? Rebuild it. Backfire is fuel leaving engine without burning popping in exhaust system. Bad valves?

89 ranger i was driving than it just stalled. i have spark, i have fuel but no fire. but it wont start, if i put starting fluid in the intake it will run for a second then stall.


If you can keep spraying staring fluid and it stays running then the fuel pump is no pumping. only with a pressure gauge can you test it

2003 Ford Ranger starts hard.


That sounds like it could be one of many things. Have you ever given the truck a tune up? I suggest the following things first.

New Air Filter
New Spark Plugs
New Plug Wires
Oil Change (and filter)

These are the basic necessities of an engine. Having a dirty air filter, or plugs that are firing weak can surely cause this problem. Try giving the truck a good old tune up and see how it starts then.
