2001 Ford Ranger 6cyl FWD. Problem:
Drove it about 50 mi to destination. Stopped, shut off engine. It would not start up again. It cranked, sounded like it was starting but died. Had it towed. Had it in their shop for a week and it sometimes started for them, sometimes didn't. They replaced the fuel pump relay. Seemed to be working ok. I drove it home, stopped 3 times on the way, shut off engine and it started each time. Got it home, wouldn't start the next morning. Tried each day and after 3 days it started. I drove it to another garage where they tried to diagnose the problem but it started for them almost all of the time. Each time it wouldn't start they would test it with every instrument they had. Then it would start. Finally they replaced the ignition coil block (?) And it seemed to work ok. At this point this second garage had the truck for 4 weeks. I picked it up and I drove it about 10 miles, shut it off for a few minutes, and started it again ok. Drove it about 20 feet and it died like it was out of gas. Continued to try starting it until the battery ran down. Had it towed to Garage No. 2 again. They have had it for 5 days now and it continues to start for them. They try it 5-4 times every day and it won't fail.
have the same problem?
