Truck died, won't start.
I have a 1998 Ford Ranger, with a 4.0L V6, automatic, 4WD, supercab.
I was driving it, last week, and it died; just like I shut the key off. There was a slight miss in it, for a while, but it got really bad, and shortly after, it died. I pulled the coil pack, had it tested,, and confirmed that it gave out. I ordered a coil pack and installed it.
After installing the coil pack, it ran great. The miss was gone, so I figured that I fixed the problem. After driving approximately 10 to 15 miles, it started to miss, again. It died on the way home.
I used a test light to see if my fuel initera switch was getting power. After 2 - 3 seconds, I'm losing power. I looked through Chilton Repair Manual, and it says that my camshaft position sensor needs to be replaced. The part was cheap, but it looks like I'm going to have remove my intake to get at this thing. Yes, I know that it was easy to get at before they put the engine in the truck. [rolls eyes]
Is there anything else I should be looking at? If my description is lacking anything, please let me know, and I do my best to get it for you. Thanks, in advance, for any replies.
