    You know, I could write a Country song about this damn truck! "If I didn't Have Bad Luck, I wouldn't have this damn 97 Mazda B4000!" I think it's possessed, the ODO say's 99,999.4 miles. (23 years old going on 100 in it's crankiness.) After driving around stop and go errands all Sunday...
  2. Truck has trouble starting when a passenger is in the seat

    My friend has an 2003 ford ranger with a 4.0 v6 she's saying that she is having trouble starting it when there is a passenger or weight in the passenger seat. All it will do is turn over but after the person or weight is moved from the passenger seat it will turn over and and then eventually...

  4. Ranger won't start after alternator replacement

    I have a 1990 Ranger 4x4 with 2.3l and the truck won't start.

  5. Engine won't start

    My 1994 2.3L SFI (California only) won't start all the time. I purchased a replacement motor and did not know enough to look at all the connectors on the harness. The old harness is no longer available. There is no connector for the cam position sensor on this harness and the motor came with...

    Clicking Noise, No Start?

    So I finished up beefing my tract-bar mounts today, tightened down all my suspension components and was going to take her out on a trail to she how she goes since I just did my first SAS. Got in and turned the key, nothing.....tried again....nothing. Had no lights, dash lights, check engine...

  9. Timing Belt Problem

    OK, So I am new to this site. I recently changed the timing belt on my truck. Now it won't start. It rolls over but won't fire. I have triple checked my alinment markers and they all seem to be alined. Still getting spark and fuel pressure. Any insite would be great.

    I have done a recent top end rebuild on my 2.9L and cannot get it to start. I have replaced several sensors, the fuel pressure regulator and water pump.
