Feedback HELP! I recently put my Cobra 25 NW in my 87 Ford Ranger and when I turn on the key I get feedback from the electric fuel pump! Any ideas? It worked just fine in the freightliner I was driving. I would appreciate any assistance I can get. Thanks, Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Welcome to the noisy Ford system. Unfortunally, most electrical items do get picked up in the CB radio. If you want to try to quiet the sitution, I have suscessfully installed grounding straps to the chassis of the vehicle from the problem source, but I will warn you, these attemps can be fruitless most of the time. Another hopeful cure is to add a choke coil ( noise filter ) in line with the positive wire of the CB. I really haven't found that to work well though unless you have alternator niose. Good Luck

I have an 87 ford ranger that hasn't been started in about ten years. It still cranks over but wont start. My thought is to drain the gas and put new in, is there anything else I can try?

the gas goes bad in one year (this comes from the American institute of petroleum), the fuel injectors are most likely damaged and the electric fuel pump and filter will most likely need to be replaced before it will start. so drain all the fuel put in at least 5 gallons of clean fuel, add one can of BERRYMANS CHEMTOOL and hope for the fuel pump to work and the injectors clean themselves out

Fuel pump on my 93 ford ranger will not run and the check engine light will not come on when you turn the key on. Just put a new fuel pump on the truck. Any ideas on where to go next???

if u took the bed off to change the fuel pump make sure u hook the ground back up to the frame the ground should be on the driver side behind the tank,u need to change the fuel pump relay when u change a fuel pump because it could be bad to cause the first pump to quit working. not the right amount of volts or to much volts,the relay is under the hood in the fuse box,

Ranger fuel problem

There is a fuel cutoff switch on the passengerside floorboard, towards the right kick pannel, there will be a little red button on top of it, check to see if that is tripped, also when you turn the key to the on position listen to see if you hear the fuel pump prime up, just a short buzzing noise from the underside of the cab, if you dont hear it, that is a good indicator that your fuel pump maybe bad, i would also check the pressure at the fuel rail, chrome or black colored bar located near the fuel injectors.

Low fuel pressure

check your sensors and change your EGR valve.
