'93 4.0-starting/tach issues
dont know if its related or not but this morning before work the ranger didnt want to start, '93 4.0 it finnally did but i noticed going down the road the tach wasnt working, went to come home, there was some buzzing/clicking from under the hood, had to hit the key a few times and it finnally turned over and ran, tach started working on the way home, stalled out at one point, it did restart but acted like a low battery, tach didnt work after this. got it home and load tested battery, shows a good 200 cca under load and goes back to 12 v after load test. dont know if tach is a seperate issue, i just want the thing to start, could the battery be just low enough that its having issues? has oringinal starter, 130,000 miles. dont know if this sytem uses a seperate driver solenoid like alot of earlier fords or if its al together like g.m. does (and the old 3.0 taurus we once had) going to see waht i can find, not a good time to be down to one vehicle, and the "other" one is a S-10 blazer with tires in bad need of replacement! thanks for any help/thoughts. Dave.
