i just bought a 2001 ford ranger edge 2wd 3.0 v6 auto trans with 115k on it. it runs great once you get it started but its hard to start.
-when the engine is cold in the morning its not AS bad but still takes 5-6 seconds of cranking to finally start up. ive tried just turning the key to ignition 2-3 times so the feul pump could build pressure but that really doesnt make it any better
-when the engine is hot it gets worse and you have to crank it a couple times for 5-6seconds until it finally starts.
i was thinking changing the fuel fiter might help a little, but i cant imagine that if the fuel filter was that clogged it would run at all. like i said once if starts it runs great.
has anyone had the same problem?? thanks in advance for the help -tim
