Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab
I pluged it in ( I live in Canada and it was a bit cold one night and thought it might have frooze) so I pluged it in and left it for a bout 4 hours then had no problems starting it. Then next day (leaving it pluged in all night) I took it to work, no problems at all drove like a dream. I went to leave work 12 hours later and nothing. It turns over but wont start. The next day I tried spraying WD-40 all over the plugs and wires (2 cans) and letting it sit for about 2 - 3 hours and still nothing. Now I was thinking about pluging it back in but honestly it's not even jacket weather here. It's not cold just wet (rain, fog). So in desperation I'm going out to plug it in hoping it will start later on. any ideas? My next assumption is it's the fuel pump or filter.......

Sounds like the Fuel Pump, which is located in the Gas Tank, ahead of the rear wheels, basically under the rear door. The gas tank itself is not hard to remove, and you could get a kit available online. It's probably easier to do if you have ramps and back the rear wheels onto those two ramps, you can't do it as easily by just jacking up the car. If you have two hydraulic jacks, that might work as well.
If you buy the part, you want to bring it to a gas station to remove the gas tank, they should be able to do all the work for you in about one hour.

look down the throat of the carb while engine is off, rotate the accelerator linkage and see if gas shoots into the throat, if it does the carb is getting its own fuel.
timing-look at the lower crank pully find your reference mark (small tab or pointer) and rotate the crank by hand until you line up 0 degrees with the pointer, open distributor cap see if it is pointing at the number 1 cylinder. if it pops and does not start, repeat this process, then unbolt distributor rotate the rotor 180 degrees reinstall and try again

The heart of the fuel/ignition system is the EEC. Other components involved are the fuel and EEC relays. You could have corroded cables causing the intermittent problem. I'd start with the relays. Remove the connector cables and spray clean the connections. If no resolution try turning the ignition switch on and off while another person feels the relays to see if they are operating (also can listen for a clicking sound from them). If all come up OK then remove the TFI connector on the distributer and clean it too. Reconnect it. A voltmeter or 12 volt circuit tester would also help by probing the various 12 volt points at the relays etc but you will need a circuit diagram to find these points as well as know how to read them. The whole point is to eliminate the least costly components first. The EEC is the most expensive component. That's why I would not replace it until I was sure it wasn't something else. Shotgunning the problem can be expensive because most parts places wont allow the return of electrical parts or will charge return fees. The EEC is a mini-computer and can be damaged by electrical surges etc.

It could be fuel pump the secondary one is the most common it is located on the side of the block. Did it sould different when it turned over? like faster turning over of the engine?
