Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
This is something I have not heard of before. I suspect it can have something to do with the Interlock switch on the Clutch pedal. Does the engine also cut out putting it into Neutral?
Check under your dash for switches on the pedal levers. Many times people get no-starts when a switch is dislocated by a shoe. Yours could be starting and then losing the Ground when the clutch pedal moves.
The Relays in the Powerbox for your fuelpump and Ignition may also be a good place to check too. Some of the Relay terminals are Ground terminals and once the truck is running the Interlock switch is not suppose to matter. The PCM is suppose to control the Relays and if a Ground is corroded the truck is searching for a Ground somewhere.
When I read your request I was wondering if the fuelpump is shutting off early causing your truck to cut out. The defect is loss of a Ground or power to the fuelpump.
