#7 of 47 2005 ford ranger just quits
Oct 25, 2008 (11:45 am)
I have a 2005 FOrd Ranger--driving down the highway the engine just quit for no apparent reason--after a few minutes of just hanging out it restarted and on my way I went. On the way back home it quit again--this time no restart. The engine spins but wont start as if no fuel or no spark. GOt the truck home and it started right up. Next day I changed the original equip fuel filter---ran for about 4 miles parked it next morning ran across the parking lot and shut down again. Now it is back in the drive and I can not simulate the problem.

I've not read about Rangers having this problem, but for other autos, these symptoms can be caused by faulty Crank Position Sensor/s.
When this sensor fails, it totally shuts the car down. Very dangerous if you are traveling at high speed. In GM cars (Cadillac) they act exactly as you said, and they also do NOT set a check engine failure code many times. So, 'pulling the codes' will not even show what happened.

My 1998 Ford Ranger was running fine, until I got custom work done to it. “Air bags, suspension”. The Ranger will crank but it is not getting any gas. The fuel pump and cylinders are not working. If I give the pump direct power it works. All fuses have been checked. The Ranger will start with starter fluid for a couple of seconds then die. It has no alarm. The gas tank was never dropped. So it has to be something that controls the gas pump and cylinders.

I hope you got your Ranger fuel problem fixed by now. I just bought a '94 and the night I picked it up and filled the tank, it leaked. I suspect the filler neck and I'm curious on what is all involved with it's replacement. Can you share your experience please?

If anyone else has this problem, the tube will have to be replaced. It costs about $3-400. Had to do it when the independent garage that replaced my fuel pump damaged the existing one. Of course, it was not his fault. Took it to a Ford dealership and cost was about the same as independents quoted.
BTW, it you replace the fuel pump, go ahead and replace the sending unit for gas gauge. Garage did warn me that pulling the old fuel pump out of the tank damages the sending unit for fuel gauge 90% of the time.

Or, might need a new PCV valve, or the line to PCV valve is plugged or kinked. Something to check first.
