  1. problems at the pump

    I have an odd problem. When sometimes when I refuel my truck I have problems excelerating after. It spits, sputters. And the other day started died and had to be pushed out of the pumps. I also have the same problems when I excel from a sharp curve or round a bout. It feels like it's running out...
  2. Low idle after start, runs fine

    I have had an extremely difficult to diagnose idle issue that has been ongoing for years. It doesn't happen always but seems to be getting more severe recently. The truck is a 1997 4.0 ohv with 160k miles. When I start the truck it will start without any problem. But after it starts The rpm...
  3. Fuel Flow Problem

    A few months ago I swapped out the fuel pump as well as the fuel filter due to a no start situation and a verified no power to the fuel pump. Ever since this time, when I get below a 1/4 of a tank I have problems with idle when coming to a stop. Sometimes, it will die and other times drop to...
  4. Fuel Sending Unit

    Good Evening: I need a fuel sending unit for my '83 Ranger, 2.8 V6, 17 gallon tank. I've searched LMC, RockAuto, Amazon, eBay, various other sites and cannot find anything OEM. Does anyone know where I can order one? And if not OEM, what can take its place? Thanks in advance! Chris
  5. Ignition, Fuel Pump or other...?

    I have a 99 Ranger 4.0 V6 4x4 that is having trouble starting on cold mornings. I have done a little research but I am lost at how many problems can have similar symptoms. So far, all I have tried to to replace the fuel pump relay. Now I don't hear the pump coming on when I turn the key on...
  6. Absolutely horrible MPGs

    I couldnt find hardly if any similar issue elsewhere on the forum. I have an 87 XLT with a 2.9...in the neighborhood i get around 10 mpg, i never do highway because of the remote area i live in. the engine has over 400k miles on it so its not so surprising. the engine has always had this issue...
  7. Need your opinion

    I've been looking around at fuel filters because mine needs replacing. First of all, is there any real difference between the cheap and expensive ones, or is it cause they are brand names? Second, I came across these universal inline fram filters too...
  8. engine bogging

    I have a 1991 Ranger XLT w/2.4 and auto trans w/129000 miles. Occasionally the engine will " bog down", act as if it's starving for fuel and I will push the peddle to the floor and it seems the transmission slips a bit then it will "catch" and start running fine. It does not do this alot, and...
  9. Fuel Plumbing and electrical issues

    Spent about two hours searching but couldn't find it on here anywhere. I have a 92 3.0 ranger currently holding a 68 302 in it. I've got a mallory return style regulator and a 500 CFM edelbrock. I've got two problems currently. First, and most annoying, is the fuel setup. There are three lines...

    Same old problems, thinking fuel related

    I find myself having to post here again unfortunately, symptoms include very intermittent power loss, of which haven't been able to find a pattern. (It will go a whole day of driving without doing it, ill park in for an hour and get back in and it wont make it 2 blocks before doing it. though...
  11. '99 sputters and dies periodically while stopping.

    About a month ago, I started noticing that my 99 Ranger (standard cab, manual transmission) would chug and sputter when coming to a stop. 2 weeks ago my timing belt broke and has been replaced, but I feel that is unrelated to the problem. My truck is doing the same thing, but it's mostly when...
  12. 1986 Ranger 2.9 problems

    I have a 1986 ranger 2.9. When i crank the engine it might fire once or twice but not start. or if it does start it will not idle and will run extremely rough. There is also A LOT of greyish/white smoke from the exhaust if it starts but it is not from coolant. I have replaced fuel filter, spark...

    So ive had my ranger for about 3 months now and i absolutely love the truck.Ive put alot of work into the truck and im going to keep improving it until its perfect in my eyes. But onto my questions...i have been told my truck is a 21 gallon tank and its a 20 or a 19.6 gallon tank. Currently i...
  14. Mechanical or electric fuel pump?

    I had to redo the fuel lines in my 302 because the way I had done them was leaking. I have a carbureted motor and was trying to retain the stock in tank pump in my ranger which is a 40 psi pump. I was using a regulator but the pressure was too much and the regulator was leaking. I decided to...
  15. Fuel Management HELP!

    So I swapped in a 1988 HO out of a Mustang GT into my 1988 Ford Ranger. Had somebody else do the wiring because I don't know how to do that stuff all too well. Long story short it wont run past 150 degrees, smokes from being WAY too rich, and burned 5 gallons of fuel just from idling. I pulled...
  16. Fuel not priming!

    Howdy! First post here. So I have an 88 B2 and the fuel isnt priming. I hear the click from the tank so I presume the relay is good. But I don't have any priming. Is this just the fuel pump? and if so which one? A little background; a couple of days ago I headed to work and it started fine...
  17. No longer wants to start...suspect fuel pressure.. recommendations?

    I have a '88 B2 with the 2.9 EFI V6. It was my daily driver; I stopped driving it for a few weeks and it now refuses to start. The engine will turn over and try to catch. I put a fuel pressure gauge on the rail under the hood. I can hear a fuel pump running and the pressure holds stead at...
