Hi all ,
I've read loads on this forum already but still I'm having no success with trying to solve my starting problem with a PK 2011 Ford Ranger.
Basically I purchased a 2011 model ranger with approx 65,000 k on clock , the ute was a liquidation sale, so I have limited info on the vehicle.
The ute has plenty of pick and go , but blows a fair amount of black smoke, because the ute had been sitting for 9 months I presumed it just needed a good run.
On the way home I ran a bottle of injector cleaner though the first tank , and put another in the second tank.
But after a few days arriving home the ute become harder to start and was constantly winding over, so I replaced the battery, still the ute would start when it felt like it.
I since dropped the oil , changed air , fuel and oil filters.
Due to have another Ranger Pk 2011 I've cleaned the EGR sensor followed by swapped it , changed the suction control valve sensor ,changed the fuel pump, changed the starter motor.
I have checked all fuses that I know of
Fuel is getting up into the injectors , I have cracked and noted fuel on all injectors and still it will not fire.
On the times the ute has started the engine runs fine with plenty of pick up , but just decides when it wants to start.
I have spoken to the injectors experts and they all doubt it's a faulty injector , but can test at $50 each just to rule this out.
Has any one else had this problem or might know of wtf is going on as I'm really over it all?
