Having problems with your 1987 Ford Ranger ?

Once in a while my 87 ford ranger will not start. it happens sparatically. i turn the ignition and it cranks over but will not fire. come back a little later and it starts no problem, i don't think its fuel, and i have replaced most electrical starting parts. any ideas?

Answers :

On this vehicle replace the distributor and tfi together. The contacts in the pickup coil errode causing intermittent starting issues.
I would 1st consider fuel pressure and then when the last tune up was look to make sure the wires and vacuum lines are not dry-rotted and the wires are not rubbing up against body ground try bending the wires and lines for cracks etc.and have a fuel pressure test done .
