I have a 1996 Ford Ranger 2wd 2.3L. It was running a little rough and had some power loss, but started reliably. Last year I replaced four fouled plugs/wires to improve performance, but was not able to replace the other four because of difficulty/time. Battery two months old. Brought it for new tires and when I went to pick it up it would crank but not start. The tire mechanic said that it was running a little rough, but started without problem and he backed it into the spot when he was done, no problem.
Checked the fuel port that looks like a tire valve and the gas just squirted out. Bought a code reader that showed three errors; bad coil, misfire on 1, and bad heat sensor. Replace both coils, but no start. The codes did not clear at first, but after several re-attemps the code reader now shows "No Codes." I purchased an ICM, but can not find one on the vehicle and do not think that I have one. I checked most if not all wire connections to see if anything shook loose, but could not find anything. Any help/direction would be appreciated.
