Ranger Died ?!?!?!
I gotta 2001 Ford Ranger w/4.0 engine, and yesterday while i was driving i came up to a stop light and it started idling really low, then come back up, then really low, and come back up, over and over. When the light turned green i started driving and about 5 seconds later, the truck just died and wouldnt restart. You tun the key and all you here is the starter clicking, like the sound it makes when your battery is dead. I just put in a brand new battery about 2 months ago so i figured maybe my alternator died but i put a voltage meter on the battery and it reads 12 volts, so that would make me think the alternator is just fine. There are no warning or check engine lights showing up on the dash. It was running completely fine and just died. Any ideas of what caused this?? or what i should check first for the problem?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
