The only way to start it is with starting fluid. After it starts it runs fine. What is my problem?


Typically an engine that won't start without a shot of starting fluid but runs fine has an issue with the choke plate not closing when it should. It may need an adjustment to allow it to close when starting. It would not hurt to change the oil, filters, and spark plug(s) as general PM maintenance.

Crank no start i shot it w starting fluid it started and runs fine could it be the main injection relay?


This sounds more like the fuel pump itself is bad. You may here it running but it may not be producing pressure. Find the fuel filter and take loose the fitting from the filter to the injector rail. turn on the key you should get steady pressure and longer than 3 seconds. If you have pressure and it pumps out lots of fuel real quick, the pump is good if you get a small amount of fuel and thats it, bad pump.

Have to spray starter fluid in the intake to get to start. once started runs fine, why?


This sounds like a weak fuelpump, and take a while to build up pressure, the starting fluid get the engine running until the pump builds up pressure, i would have the fuel pressure tested and i think you will find that its bad. good day.

87 ford ranger wont start without starting fluid


It sounds like you aren't getting fuel out of the cold start injector... remove the injector when engine is cold and switch on ignition... you should get a fine spray pattern for a few seconds... if not then there is probably a problem with the cold start circuit (Temp sensor fault), or the injector is faulty. pull electrical connectors one at a time and look for corrosion... Hope this helps...;-)
