1994 Ford Ranger 200,000 miles and it stopped
I have a 1994 Ford Ranger it has over 200K I was on the highway no lights came on all
gages were normal when it just lost power. It will turn over, but will not start.
Ditch the tired old Ford and get the hook up on a REAL ride!! I HAVE an answer!!! Slide on down for a SIZZLING HOT Summer Deal on a reliable ride from your local Acura or Lexus Dealers!! Keep the prestige and gain a worthy vehicle that wont be a dang moneypit like those German or American cars!! Hollar BACK at yer dawg!! ARoOooOoooo!!!!
It is possible that the inertia switch is popped. They are supposed to turn off spark and fuel in the event of an accident, but they can fail also. Not a 100 percent sure on your year model, but quite often they are located on the passenger side floorboards near the hump just above the carpet. Other culprits could be fuses or relays, check them all, especially the fuel pump relay and pcm relay.
Ignore the car dealer and fix your old truck, I'm sure your dad would like it.
My first 2 suspects are, given the age and mileage of the truck, fuel pump failure, or timing chain failure. HTH. -Jim
I'm not a stinkin' car dealer, you buffoon! I'm keepin' it 100% real up in here, ya heard me? ANY Ford that reaches 200k miles is a miracle...but don't press yer luck!! Ease up off dat Ford at the earliest opportunity, whodie!
When out this afternoon and checked the switch, it did not need reset. So I tried to start it and it hit and ran for about a minute then it stopped and would not start again. I'll check the fuses, but not sure which one to "check"
Jamesrhodes, you sound like a car dealer. Anyway mejsdad check any fuses and relays you can find especially those associated with starter fuel pump, pcm etc. also I think Jim has some good ideas, he's got a lot of experience. Your fuel pump should cycle for a few seconds and build up pressure. If you can't here it, that's your place to start. Hopefully its not a timing chain .
Thanks for all the advice, it is up and running.
Awesome! Thanks for letting us know. Glad to help. -Jim
