Customer Question

I have a 1992 ford ranger with a 2.3L and a 5 speed transmission. It wouldn't start. I checked fuel pressure and had none. So I had the fuel pump replaced and it still wouldn't start so they put an ignition module, new timing belt since it was cracked and it still wouldn't run. Then they put a new crankshaft sensor, and new coil pack for the intake said they said. It runs smooth until you get it out on the road and put it under a load. Then it cuts out and jerks really hard until you let off and will keep going smooth again until put under a load again. I don't drive it now because it is so severe. Could this be caused by the timing belt now being installed correctly?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
