1989 Ford ranger 2.3L Dual Plug eecIV DIS. Parts replaced in the last 3 months: Timing Belt, Crankshaft position sensor, ECT sensor, ACT sensor, MAP sensor, EGR valve and position sensor, EEC relay and EEC, Fuel relay and Fuel pump, fuel filter, 4 fuel injectors, ICM, spark plug wires and plugs, both coil packs replaced and test good, New battery and cables, cleaned all grounds, Fuel pressure regulator. Fuel pressure is steady at 40 psi, I do have good strong spark at plugs on exhaust side. Compression test is 175 on all cylinders and 190 psi on all, with a little oil in cylinders. Check engine light is on when cranking only, codes read 11, all clear. We have tried replacing everything of importance for spark, fuel, compression, which we have. It won't run for more than 5 seconds then die and cannot restart for hours. Please someone help. The truck didn't have a outer timing belt cover when we bought it, so when we installed the timing belt we followed haynes manual with TDC on crankshaft and camshaft pointer at mark on back cover, so I'm sure timing is ok. But just for the heck of it I put a timing light #1 plug on exhaust side and it read an advance of approx. 50 degrees? Need some help on where to go from here. One more thing, when cranking oil light flashes, no other lights flash.
