Default Final Solution : 89 Ranger Hard Start Cold

Thanks to all who helped along the way...
Physcopete, you were correct from the get go, final solution was the Fuel Pump, located in the Tank. Replaced pump, now starts fine, no more hesitation ect.
I appreciate all the time and patience you all showed me, many thanks.

Default Re: 89 Ranger Hard Start Cold

I have been working on 1988 2.9 Ranger Extended Cab with hard start, ruff idle and no power. Check codes result was clean, cleaned TBS, TB, TPS, check Spark Plugs and no change. Orded new fule pump, removed box to remove and install new fule pump. After removing old pump noticed the new pump was different. After inspectiion of old pump noticed the hose that connects the pump to the pipe was deteriorated, replaced hose and truck runs like a top now.
