Replaced the engine in a 2000 ranger 3.0 flex fuel. The engine started immediately. I let it run for about 15 minutes until the gauge read a normal operating temp. I then shut it down to finish tightening the exhaust bolts. Now it wont start. I have switched out the coil, installed new plugs prior to installing the engine, have fuel to the rail, have spark, ensured all connectors and the ground are secure, and have a new fuel filter. I bled the air out of the fuel system at the valve on the rail. The engine turns over great, just wont start. Also checked fuses. What else can I check? This is a used engine with 40K miles.
have the same problem?
