96 ranger 4 cyl.?

Done everything by the book (13 times) over again .
I thru a timing belt off and was trailerd home and have been working on this thing for 2 days.
Have lined all 3 marks up many times.
But it still won't pull a sick w###e out of bed.
I'm old and just about to junk it cause it's hot out.

What's the answer?

It ran fine until the belt broke. It starts instantly but has no power.

Re: 96 ranger 4 cyl.?

I haven't taken a reading. Why would it change in 2 days? Would it bend a valve? I've heard those heads are so that the valves won't interfere with pistons. Was i misinformed>

Re: 96 ranger 4 cyl.?

It's not an interference engine. Are you saying it ran for 2 days after you replaced the timing belt and then started having the problem?

It has no power since replacing the belt. I took it apart again today to check the timing marks all are where there suppossed to be.
It ran really well before breaking the belt.
It starts and runs just has no power.

It's a high miler but mostly hiway miles and it ran really well before breaking the belt.

Re: 96 ranger 4 cyl.?

That's why I suggested the compression check. There has to be something in the timing. If the compression is low, that will verify it.
