Asked by Sep 29, 2016 at 01:34 AM about the 1986 Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 86 Bronco a i'm trying to get
running, just replaced the fuel pump, as I
thought that was the reason for it not
running. It has new spark plugs, but still no
spark, I am wondering if it is the ignition
coil of distributor but was wondering what
the proper trouble shooting is? Where do I
start my trouble shooting

Grab your test light, and check for power on the coil positive wire boy in the key on and the crank positions, if not check the ignition fuse and switch, replace if needed, next put the test light between the coils positive and negative and crank the engine, you should get a flashing light, if you do replace the ignition coil, if not replace the ignition module and if the distributor pickup has never been replaced you might consider replacing that too, I always did when replacing the module, then unplug the spout connector, start engine, reset base timing to specs, shut engine off and reconnect the spout connector. That's it should run now.
