Question about 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD

2 Answers

I just had a new fuel pump installed in my truck. It ran fine for about a week, now it will turn over but not start. Yes there is plenty of fuel, a new battery, and I can smell gas when trying to start my truck. Is it possible it needs points, new rotor, ingnition modulater, or coil?

Yes it is possible, you might need a coil or module. the module can be checked at the parts store(Call first to see if they have the equipment) The coil can be checked with an ohm meter. you will need the numbers for the resistance on the primary and secondary leads of the coil. If those numbers are out of range replace the coil. I would also check the fuel pressure. I have put in new pumps before and had to change them as soon as the next day. I only get my pumps from napa or speedway. OEM. Good luck

Dont know year model of truck but if its a ford ranger 2000 or newer then it is possible the inertia switch is defective. switch is designed to cut off fuel supply in event of collision but i have found them to be quite sensitive. mine is located passenger side under dash. check to see if the reset button has popped.

My 1994 ford fairmont will turn over. but won't start. was out of fuel. fixed that. batteries fine.


Check the bump sensor in the trunk to make sure its not tripped when you ran out of gas. Also check your fuel pressure, I think this unit has a electric fuel pump, and it could have gone bad

My 1997 chevy tahoe will not start without starting fluid. I hear the fuel pump running and have changed the fuel pressure regulator already and the fuel filter. The pump is only a year old. Have checked...


IVE HAD PLENTY OF THESE GO OUT EVEN A MONTH LATER. AS FAR AS THE STARTING FLUID JUST TRY AND CYCLE KEY BUT KEEP IT FROM TURNING STATER OVER. TURN ON AND OFF ABOUT 3 TO 5 TIMES IT SHOULD BUILD ENOUGH PRESSURE TO START. TO START MINIMUN PRESS IS 55PSI.

Ford Focus Engine System Fault warning light


yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

Testing fuel pressure


the port is on the fuel rail on top of the motor. it looks like a big air valve that you find on the wheel.
