Asked by Feb 27, 2016 at 10:22 AM about the 1994 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Truck loses power. Might run few minutes or
might run a week before it does it again.
Replaced ignition module, gas tank, fuel
pump and filter. No change. Let it set 10-15
minutes and it will start up and run good.
Any ideas?

Still sounds spark related, did you replace the distributor pickup coil when you did the module? And did you used a good quality module?

No didn't replace distributor pickup coil. Where is that located? I'm not much of a mechanic. Ha.

inside the distributor. If your not much of a mechanic you may want to have someone do this cause it requires the distributor to be disassembled to replace it.

This engine has the 2 coils. Could one of those be the problem?

I'm still leaning towards the distributor pickup coil, usually if an ignition coil goes out it goes out all the way, none of this works then don't. Unlike a distributor pickup coil, as they work then when they get warm they cut out, then cool off and they work until they reach that temp again and down they go.

Ok I will g8ve it a try. Thanks muçh for your help.
