Will not start hot, intermitantly
I posted this in another section and only received two responses so I thought I would try here to see if I get any responses.
I have a 2002 Ranger with a 4.0 engine. It has about 66,000 miles on it. Every once in a while, after driving it a short distance (2 to 10 miles), it will not start. If I leave it sit till it cools then it will start. It has stranded me about four times so far. I have checked it for codes and there are none. It will crank but not fire. Every time it happens I am away from my tools so I have not been able to check anything. It acts like it has spark but not getting fuel. The battery is Four years old. When it will not start it will turn over rapidly as it does normally. The battery is fluid level is where it should be. Just to eliminate the possibility I will clean the battery terminals and have it load tested.
I am afraid to drive it.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
