1998 Ford Ranger Q&A

1998 Ford Ranger Question: Why won't it start?

Engine turns over, have spark and fuel. Nothing we do can make it start. Any suggestions? -
Answer 1
Are the injectors opening? Do you have spark at the plugs? -
Comment 1
We have spark, but aren't sure if the injectors are opening. -
Comment 2
You can get a tool called a "noid light" to check the ground signal to the injector, you can use a voltmeter or regular test light to check for 12 volts at the injector. Try a search and you should be able to find the tool for your vehicle. -
