1988 Ford Ranger 2.9l v6 5 speed 4x4

Asked by Sep 05, 2015 at 12:21 PM about the 1988 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Initially it needed a fuel pump. Got that in, it ran for a few days, then it wouldn't run at all. Randomly, seemingly when it was dry out it would run all day. I went ahead and did a tune up. I also changed Dis. Cap and rotor. Nothing changed. Just recently changed the ignition control module, its been running fine since. Then yesterday, it had a hard time starting and finally got it going. It acted like the battery was dead, barley getting juice, then all the sudden it fired right up. Today it wouldn't start. Help?

I don't want to offend you ... but I'll say it any how ... sounds like the pos terminal is not making a good contact

Tom no offense here. I actually drove the truck that day, and it died again, I checked the pos terminal and it was split, I replaced the wire. Now it wont turn over. I here clicking when I turn the key, could that be the starter? ive already replaced the solenoid.
