I have a 1989 ford ranger pickup/extended cab w/ 2.3 L 4cyl. Its 2WD has 2 spark plugs per cyl, no distributer. The timing sensor is on the crankshaft. The truck has always ran pretty good. It has only 106,000 miles which is pretty good for that year. It started to have a miss in it at any rpm lower than 2k. It went from not too bad to not even running. When I crank it, it has the sound of incorrect spark timing. I replaced the timing belt about 4k miles ago with no problems. I have a generic manual that shows me how to test the coils, which I did. The ignition control mod. Costs $129 and the timing sensor is $67. I hate to be just a parts replacer and $$ is tight around the holidays. Is there any way that I can check these parts? I have multi-meters and a good knowledge of electric. Thank you to anyone who can help
have the same problem?
