I have this 1998 ford ranger 2.5l motor it has the 2 plugs per cylinder. It was parked the other night and the next day I tried to start it and the starter would not engage, but when it did it made it hard to describe it was like a hard kick in the engine, so I got another starter for it because it did need a starter and it did need the starter but it still does not start and this truck always started and it kicks back too so I don't know what is going on with it does any one have a logical theory I would appreciate it.

Try resetting security system if no manual look online. Make sure battery ends are clean. Then scan for codes.

Did you reset security? What is fuel pressure check with a gauge. It can be a bunch of things causeing kick back, firing order wrong for one. See pic
