2.3L motor stopped while driving down the road about 40 mph. Would like help to troubleshoot problem. Information attached.
Driving down the road and lost all power. No lights or whistles sounded, no reason to have issue. little truck runs great. Thought about timming belt, battery, or clutch arm switch but the motor turns over, yet sounds like it has no spark. When you press on the breaks....the turn signals come on; and when I turned on the emergency flashers,they did not come work. THANKS!!! HELP!!!
Really need the year and what 2.3 you have, single or dual plug.
Sorry about that..., 1991 Ranger, with 4, single diode plugs. Thanks!
My first thought is the ignition module as they are a high fail on most Fords, then the distributor stator, especially if it has never been changed, then the ignition coil. As fas as the warning light problem that sounds like the 4 way flasher may be bad and you have some bad contacts in the turn signal switch.
Hello, Thanks for the feedback! Been out of touch for a couple of days. Will go with module, since it hasn't ever been changed. Then see what happens.
