Customer Question

My 2001 ford ranger with the small eng will start right now but if I drive it someplace and it sits for 10 min it won't start until I let it sit for a half hour. Then it starts right up.

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. The most common cause of this no start condition (happening intermittantly) is a bad fuel pump or a bad crankshaft position sensor. I would check for spark and fuel when this no start condition occurs to be sure you replace the correct part.
