Does anyone have any suggestions 99 ford ranger will not start on its own you can spray it with ether it will start and run until you shut it off it just has a little bit of high idle and will not switch gears unless you do it manually and then you can still only get 1st and 2nd. The dealer says there is a short. Where would you start looking at for a short
