I have a 1993 Ranger with 162,000 miles 2.3 liter 4 cyl with a manual transmission. It won't start unless I jiggle the transmission shift lever back and forth-and then it engages. But now it won't start at all regardless of how much I jiggle the shift lever. Someone said that it's a solenoid that needs to be replaced-I wondered if this make/model had a start interlock that needs replacement/repair. It runs fine once I can get it started-no compression loss that I know of.
BUT-it still has the original timing belt. On this model-is the timing belt a interference/non-interference belt? What I need to know is if it breaks-will it ruin the engine? Thank you
have the same problem?
