1996 Ford Ranger won't start

Sometimes my 1996 Ford Ranger won't start. It cranks fine, just won't start. Usually, if I keep trying, it will eventually start and run fine. It doesn't matter if it's hot or cold (the engine).

I had the same problem , and if you read your book, it could be the fuel pump shut off switch, mine was bad and went from on to off position, its usually under the passenger side of the dash, look underneath at the "top" of the carpet, and you'll see a little red switch, check to see if the thing is plugged in , if it is , check to see if the switch is all the way down. i had to get a new one , sombody must have kicked mine and made it broken, but i got a new one and it worked fine

If you change the plug wires and have the wires crossed or not connected correctly it can cause it to not start or the coil is bad!

The next time it tries to do this, stop cranking, turn the key off, crawl under the truck, smack the side of your fuel tank with a hammer, then try again. If it starts immediately, you are losing a fuel pump. If there is no change, then you'll need to determine if you are losing fuel pressure while it sits still or if there is an electrical issue messing with your injector pulse.

99 ford ranger, most of the time it will start and run just fine, but sometimes it won't start after several attempts for hours, then it will start again eventually


Does this problem become more common during cold weather days ? Or when it has rained ? Humidity and moisture can affect a few components which make it hard to start.

Might want to double check your vacuum lines also.

Unfortunately there are many things that could be causing this. I would check the engine coolant temp. sensor ..and see what its reading with the engine hot. Your going to need a scan tool to get that reading...or just change the sensor...good luck

1993 ford ranger difficult to start


This double crank you say works in a couple of seconds? Try this; Turn the key on and wait a couple of seconds before cranking. It may be it takes a couple of seconds for the rail pressure to build up. The fuel pump shouldn't have to refill the fuel system but pressure recovery could be hindered by the fuel filter no passing fuelfreely enough.. Age of fuel filter?
