Hi, I own a 1994 Ford Ranger with 74000 miles. It began stalling when driving it. I would turn off the key and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes and it would start and drive for about 10 miles and stall again. I took it to the garage and they said it was an EGR valve and electronic ignition part under the hood, located near the battery. They replaced it and it stopped stalling. Then it began cranking over and not starting. It will run fine and about every fourth time you would try to start it. It will crank and not start. I let it sit for 10 minutes and it starts and runs fine. Took to another garage and they said it was a plugged fuel filter and a faulty computer under the dash, replaced them. Truck worked fine until I got it home and it repeated the cranking over and not starting. Took it back to the garage and they looked at it staing nothing was wrong, and that it started for them. I took it to a Ford garage. And they said it was a bad fuel pump and fuel filter after diagnosing it. They replaced the pump and filter and the day after I drove it home it began cranking over and not starting. Called the Ford Garage, they said bring it back. I did and they said it will cost me $170.00 to diagnose the problem once again, even though I paid Ford to do that already. I have already paid over $2000.00 in repairs so far. What is wrong with this truck? It runs fine but about every 4th or 5th time you start it, only cranks and the engine wont start. Then I let it sit for 5-10 minutes and it starts right up. Please advise
have the same problem?
