Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
Have you tried spraying starter fluid into the intake manifold while someone else tries to start it? If it will start that way, then it is most likely the fuel pump needs replaced. You can also try to push in the fuel primer, it is on the passenger side if it is a 2.9. It will or should have a black cap similar to what you would see on a tire inflation valve. Unscrew the cap (do not lose it!) and while someone turns over the motor press the needle in the primer in with a screwdriver, if fuel squirts out then your fuel pump is ok.
