Vehicle: 1997 Ford Ranger, 2.3L "Lima", manual transmission. 265k miles, no CEL, runs fine. My son has had two incidents driving this truck. Both times, he stopped suddenly when a light turned yellow in order not to run the red. The engine died (my guess is that it died because he was braking hard and left it in gear, but I do not know). The truck then failed to restart. It will crank and crank but not show signs of beginning to start. The first time this happened, I tried a bunch of stuff and after I switched the fuses between the headlights and the fuel pump, it started running and ran fine. The fuse wasn't blown, though, so I think it was just random that it started working. The second time this happened, I tried fiddling with the fuses, fuel pump relay, and inertia switch. I jumpered the inertia switch connector to bypass it. Still no start. So I would rule out fuses, relays, and the inertia switch. I pressed on the schrader valve to check fuel pressure. Fuel pressure was low. Then I had my son turn the key on. A little more fuel dribbled out for a couple of seconds then stopped. Off then on, a little more. Tried it again, a geyser of fuel shot out. Then, after that, the truck ran fine again. A clue: this truck has quirk where if has been sitting for a few minutes or more, when you try to start it, it revs up for a couple seconds, then dies. On your second try, it will start normally. Or if you turn the key on for a couple of seconds before starting, it will start just fine. So there is *something* suspect in the fuel delivery. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, and and fuel injectors in this truck. None of these had an effect on the starts-then-dies problem (I was hoping they would). The second time this happened, the tank was about 1/4 full. I don't remember how full it was when this happened the first time. Both incidents happened in the same area, maybe 3-4 miles away from our house, after leaving our house. So the truck was mostly warmed up, but hadn't been driven long when it happened. I'm telling him just to go through on the yellow, but I'd like to get this fixed, lol.
