I know this is going to sound crazy, but my son's truck was having the same thing's going on... fixed alot of the same things... still nothing. sometimes i could pump the **** out of it, and keep cranking, and it would fire for a moment and then die.Some times it would start and run til it got warmed up, and then either run like ****, or just die went down to Schucks and had them test the alternator, and they said it was good... tried a few other things, and then gave up, and it sat for several months. Was talking to a different guy at Schucks again one day and he said that he thought that he remembered there being some kiind of a problem with the alternators in the same year frame... so I went back to the house, pulled the alternator out (truck wasn't running) and had them test it again... sure as **** it was weak... bought new one threw it in, and the trucks been running every since... reason for long story? I was told everything else under the sun to replace, but this was what was wrong.

Replace the inertia switch and it's plug over time the plug and switch get warm and melts plastic plug causing a loose connection that continues to get worse until the truck won't at all ford sells the switch and the plug together possibly updated parts

I have a 1987 ford ranger the engine turns over but it wont start

Spark at plugs? Fuel filter? Pressure on injector delivery line? Pressure relief valve? You may be able to measure fuel pressure at the pressure relief valve location. and return line. If you have spark, I'd say it's a fuel supply problem

Why is my 1987 ford ranger acking iike its loosing fule pressurs win diving

It may BE losing fuel pressure, Robert. Check the fuel pressure and flow rate at the fuel rail. Filter, plugs, and cap have nothing to do with fuel pressure - your fuel pump and pressure regulator are the only things that can change fuel pressure very much.

The evaporative system failed on emissions for my 87 Ford Ranger 2.9l engine, any suggestions what might be wrong

It can't be filled up because it leaks, or won't take anymore gas? Check the hose from the fuel filler to the tank for kinks or restrictions, if you have leaks, fill it up and trace the leak. Either problem will cause EVAP codes, hard starts, and cause vehicle to die.

1987 Bronco II 2.9 Engine. Had it for 10 years with the same problem the whole time. Runs fine while the weather is warm and dry. Once the humidity or temp changes, or the rain starts, it loses power, bogs...

Have you changed the distributor cap? A crack in the cap will cause moisture to gather and cause spark issues. Give the cap a very thorough inspection and also your wires. You may have poorly insulated boots on the wires and the spark will ground out. I had this issue and I looked at the engine at night in the pitch black. I found a plug wire arcing to the distributor base because of a bad plug wire. The truck lost power when the weather was moist. I hope this helps.
