Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

Fuel rail noise

I have a 99 ford ranger with a 3.0L flex-fuel engine. I hear a humming sound above the number 4 fuel injector when I put a screwdriver on the fuel rail and next to my ear. I do not hear it on any of the other 5 injectors when listening to them. I have new spark plugs, and wires. They are all working fine. I have checked for vacuum leaks visually and with a vacuum tester, no leaks. I have a new fuel filter also. The fuel pump sounds normal and is working fine. All of the fuel injectors are clicking equally while the engine is running. Have used a fuel system cleaner also. Checked engine compression with a gauge, everything is normal. Trying to figure out if it might be something in fuel rail stuck after system cleaning or is it a valve in that cylinder making that sound.

You may be hearing the pressure regulator that is relieving the pressure on the rail and returning it to the tank.

SOURCE: engine misfires

You didnt mention having changed the spark plug wires, so that is another item that could be culprit as well. As well, it could be a coil pack that is not working properly.

I cannot recall at the moment if that model year uses coil on plugs or if it uses coil packs. Either way, if it uses a coil on plug set up, take the one for the #3 cylinder and move it to say #4 or anyone of your choice and see if the misfire follows

If it uses coil packs, there is likely one coil pack that controls two cylinders. In that case just swap the coil pack with an adjacent one and see if the problem follows. Pay attention to where the spark plug wires go because it will be an issue if you get them mixed up. You just swap the coil packs around.

I would, however, start with the spark plug wires if you have not changed them already.

Run a compression test on the cylinders.If reading is low on any drop a little engine oil into the pot. If compression rises you have compession ring problems. Remove all plugs before you try this and place leads away from engine.

Sounds like either a bad plug wire, or coil pack. This is about all that would cause the misfire.

remove the coil pack and look at bottom of it if it shows any cracks coil is bad very common on these vans if you have a noid light check for injector pulse on #4 if you have pulse and good blue spark most likely the injector is bad you have to remove upper plenum to get injectors out let me know how you make out

Check compression in number three. You could have bought a bad engine. And yes. You need to change every sensor. If they don't match with the plugs. replace the engine. There is a reason for different engine codes. You should have stuck with them.

Refresh my memory, What have you done to the car beside replacing fuel filter? Do you have a fully charged battery? Are you getting spark to all cylinders? Are you getting fuel? I can help you if you tell me what is wrong. Don't assume it's the fuel pump cause there is so much in between but we can see if your Fuel Pump is working. Open your gas tank and have someone turn the car on but without starting it. You should hear a hum for about 2 to 3 seconds.
This means your pump is working. Now you need to find out what is your fuel pressure? A good number is between 65Lbs. and 40 lbs.
Let me know how you make out I'll be on line all day today.

Anti theft bypass on 99 ford ranger??????


Technically, you can't bypass it. Neither can the car thieves.
The security module is built into the instrument cluster and it "talks" to the engine computer. The two components have to be sync-ed with the key codes.
You may be able to hot-wire the coil and fuel pump but I doubt the injectors will work since the computer will be out of service.
Usually a dealer has to reprogram the cluster and computer with the new key code.

Im working on a ford ranger 2002 with the v6. i just need to see a pic of the piston order and the coil pack order. im getting codes for 4..5..6 missfire but im not sure witch ones they are


Cylinders 1,2 and 3 are the cylinders on the passenger side and cylinders 4,5 and 6 are the cylinders on the driver's side. They are numbered front to rear. The coil pack will have the cylinder numbers marked on the top of it. The actual firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6
The top of your coil should look like this:
1 2 3
5 6 4

Your engine looks like this:
1 2 3
FRONT OF ENGINE
4 5 6

No spark or current from ignition coil


possibly the flex fuel sensor- its on the frame rail just behind the drivers door- check the conector and connections on the sensor itself.
