My '03 Ranger XLT has problems starting
First I thought it was bad batch of gas because after I got a full tank a month and half ago is when this all started. If it sits overnight it starts right up so I can go to work, I leave at 8:15am for the 5 minute drive, then at 9:15when I go to the P.O. is when I make the decision on how to start it, if it won't turn over the first time, I have to turn it so the fuel pump kicks on then it starts and this is the method I use for the rest of the day. Some days it starts right up, but those are few and far between.
I took it to one mechanic and all he noted was a very minute drop in fuel pressure and said that that couldn't be the problem, so I let it go at that. Since then I have put in high grade fuel, several octane boosters and just recently spent $130 on a fuel system flush and its still doing it......and now to boot, the damn check engine light is coming on.
Now, I'm not mechaniclly inclined by any means, but I'm thinking if it was a fuel sensor or fuel pump or something, I'm sure they would have said something.
Anybody have any clues before I take it to Pasadena Ford?
Many thanx in advance
