The weather has been too bad to replace the starter, so I was looking at the relays I had just put in and realized that I had not actually replaced the relay to the fuel pump as I had intended (swapped out a different one instead). After I replaced the relay to the fuel pump with the new relay, the truck started right up. I have been suspicious, since it did that before, but it has been almost a week now and the truck has started up just fine each time.
I'm still going to replace the starter, but I no longer think it is part of the problem.
I'm also still a little unclear why the bad relay kills all of the power to the cab and then eventually resets. Almost like the bad relay shorts the entire electrical system and then after some time the relay mechanically resets, restoring power (sometimes).

I had the same issue happen to me. I did all that you did to no avail. Ended up taking it to my mechanic.....Wiring issue...didn't cost that much at all!

Any ideas what it could cranks over but won't start? Iv changed fuel pump, fuel pump wiring,fuel filter,spark plugs and wires still nothing? Could coil packs be the cause behind this madness?
#313 of 337 91 ford ranger sputtering and stalling
Mar 04, 2012 (11:07 am)
We got my 91 ford ranger about a year ago, and for a few months it has on and off had an issue with sputtering and stalling when we first start it. You will hear the engine working very hard and it will shake the truck and then boom, truck turns off. First time it happened it was right after we had the first full tank of gas in a looong time, had been running it until it died from no gas(we are broke), so we replaced the fuel pump hoping we had just clogged it. It didnt happen for awhile after that but then the last month it started happening again.
Keep in mind, it will do it once, and then we will restart it, and its fine,like it never happened.
Well, my fiance was driving it to work this morning on the freeway and it did the same thing twice. only difference, it was while he was already driving. It took him awhile, but he got it to start and got it back home.Had to call into work. This is his work truck so we are really worried about fixing this or he doesnt have a job any more.
No money to get it diagnosed. Any ideas??

#316 of 337 Ranger won't start first time of the day
Aug 11, 2012 (8:19 pm)
I have to pump once, crank, tries to start. Pump, crank, tries to start. After 6 or 7 times, it will start, but run VERY rough. Then after 5 to 10 seconds, it will smooth out. It starts and runs fine after that for the day. Any ideas?? This is a 97 Ranger 3.0 4X2

I found a possible solution to our problem. Haven't tried it yet. Someone in another forum said that the TFI module on the back of the distributor needs to be taken off and regreased with dielectric grease and put back on.
