Ranger Danger (fuel issues)
My 1988 2.9L ranger has been running rough so I decided to start by replacing the fuel filter. The filter housing I found is inbetween the tank and the external fuel pump, I removed it and it was full of gas but had no filter. I put a can style filter inside it and reattached the lines. It ran fine for a min, then died and wont start. Now no fuel is getting to the throttle body, and no fuel is getting into the filter housing. I blew on the lines coming from the tank to the filter and they are clear and gas flows.
Dont know what to do from here.
Afterwards I found another filter (inline type) after the fuel pump, right under the starter. I plan to replace this later.
My questions are:
Is it standard to have 2 filters?
In my chilton manual I dont see a fuel pump inside the tank, is there only 1 fuel pump?
