Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I have a 2001 Ford Ranger 2.5 (4Cyl 8 spark plug). The engine turns but will not start. I've replaced the battery and checked the alternator and as far as I've been told the starter works. Any ideas on what it might be?

You need to see if it is not firing or no fuel. Take the air filter top off and spray some starting fluid in it and see if it runs for a few seconds.
