Engine Performance problem
1998 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 215, 00 miles
My car does not start in the morning. It then causes my starter to freeze up from excessive cranking over. I have replaced 3 starters and a clutch fan. To get it to start I have to give it a little gas and hope I don't flood it. The Clutch fan now makes a noise EVERYTIME I attept to start it in the morning. The mechanic says the car is kicking back instead of the engine going forward. Once the car starts and is warmed up, no more prob;ems. Is it a fuel injector problem? A friend of mine says that there is an injector that is for starting in the morning for cold starts. Could this be the problem? I have replaced all sensors on this car. Is there an automatic choke on the truck, could it have gone bad? Please help, the car runs like brand new when started, all this started when I had the timing belt replaced at the dealer and they stated the head was Aok. Please advise, thanks.
have the same problem?
