87 ranger fuel problems

Would the injectors fuel pump/filter cause the truck to not want to start?
Or maybe die out? I know it's not the starter, alt or battery, but the truck
is hard to start sometimes.

Thanks

Re: 87 ranger fuel problems

what it seems to me is, that when I go to crank the truck in the morning, it
feels like it is not getting any fuel. I put some injector cleaner in the
gas and it seemed to help a little. But occasionally it will die while I'm
driving it.

"Doctor, It feels like I'm still tired.. sorta"

What Engine?!

Does pumping the gas pedal while starting help? Computer sends more gas

Flooring it? Computer sends less gas

What are the rpm's first started? when warm? Does the engine speed
'hunt' in park or at stop?

by the way if you have to ask about the fuel filter its time to change
it. Yes injectors could cause it as can a worn fuel pump and many
other things..

1: change fuel filter
2: check fuel pressure
3: does it hold fuel pressure after engine has been shut off?
4: hows timing set
5: tuneup? plugs ok? cap, rotor etc?

ALWAYS TRY THE BASICS FIRST
