No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup

It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

Missing on number 3

Did you set the gap right on the spark plugs? Also double and triple check the wiring diagram for plug wires, because may have gotten one crossed. I would also check to see if having any vacuum leaks or broken vacuum lines since replacing wires, sometimes they become brittle and break.

You may have a broken timing belt( look through the inspection cover and verify there is no fraying or broken pieces of belt. if you have fuel,spark,and air, the only thing left is timing.

2001 ford ranger, 3.0L running rough, seems like cat converter getting hot too, could this be a bad coil pack, plugs and wires look ok

Start the engine and let it idle.Pull off the spark plug wires one at a time(wear leather gloves or use a plug wire tool to avoid being shocked).The wire that you pull off that makes no difference to the way the truck runs is the problem.If a set of plugs and wires don,t fix the problem,remove the suspect plug and check to see if it is firing by laying the metal portion against a good ground and then have someone turn over the engine while you watch for spark,if you have spark then you likely have a plugged catalytic converter,if there is no spark then you need a coil pack.

Engin developes diesel knock followed by the engin management light comes on

Assuming the engine timing is'nt the problem; you may have a fouled spark plug, bad spark plug wire, or excessive carbon build-up on the valves and pistons etc. Make sure all fluid levels are where they should be. Try replacing the spark plugs and wires. Look in your operator's manual in the specs sections and make sure the spark plugs that are installed are gapped properly. Improperly gapped spark plugs or split-fire ( can't be gapped) spark plugs are known to cause engine issues. Make sure to use dielectric grease when connecting the spark plug boots to the spark plugs; and the wires to the distributor. Also run a couple bottles of fuel system or injector cleaner and water remover through several tanks of gas to remove any possible excessive carbon build-up. Hope this helps. God bless!

Try putting a bottle of injector cleaner through it and see if it clears up at all. It may be that you have a little carbon build up. If that does'nt help you may need new spark plugs and/or wires. The coil may be on its way out too, but I would replace the cheap stuff first. If you end up replacing the spark plugs make sure they are gapped properly before installing them. They rarely come from the store gapped to the specification that is in your operators manual. Hope this helps. God bless

01 ford ranger 4x4 4.0V6-- rough idle like it wants to cut off. loses power or studders under acceleration. struggles to get up to 55 or 60

I agree. Try replacing the spark plugs, install new spark plug wires, change the air filter, change the fuel filter, and test the battery and alternator. Run a bottle of fuel system cleaner and water remover through it. To replace the spark plugs you'll most likely have to go through the wheel wells cause of their hard accessibility from the top. The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame on the driver's side. Hope this helps. God bless

Rough running, erratic spark

Run a compression test on the cylinders.If reading is low on any drop a little engine oil into the pot. If compression rises you have compession ring problems. Remove all plugs before you try this and place leads away from engine.

Cracked spark plug insulator

that could happen because they are getting too hot......check for any means of resistance in the wiring or check for possible bad ground to the ignition system. and replace as neccesary
