    well, if it is a ford ranger, from what it sounds like the ignition module to me, like it tries to start, fires but will die as soon as you let go of the key. if this sounds correct, get one from a scrap yard, common problem.

    well....looking at it has come to determine, I serioulsy think his timing belt slipped or the tensioner let go....the truck has a distributorless ignition, therefore no module as it is in the coil packs. It has spark and fuel going to it and seems that eveything else checks out...don't worry slice! we will get that thing going this summer for ya!

    Check your timing belt. It sounds like that. When you turn your key on , it turns over and over and with no start quite possibly the timing belt. Would like to come over but just got out of hospital about 2 months ago having part of my foot removed. Sorry

    Now I did not know that you had a Ford Ranger, but I had one for 4 years and it was the best dam truck I have ever owned. Is it a 4 cylinder or a six cylinder. The reason that I asked this is that the 4 cylinder had problems with their timing belts. Either slipping or snapping. I do hope that this helps you. Respectfully, Larry McDonald.

    Hi Larry, sorry, I haven't checked this thread in a while.. and yes it is a 4cylinder, so i'm guessing it probably is a timing belt issue.
    Do you know how to change one? lol -- Cuz i have no idea.... I'd like to have this running before I bring it to be "certified" within the next couple of weeks....

    Borrow a manual from the library and check out the job.

    Absolutely.

    Another thing about libraries. The public library will order in a book for you if they don't have it, usually free, from ANYWHERE!!! ANY other public library that has it.
