Default Newby's first post. 88 ranger 2.3 ,dead

Sorry if i'm not in the correct spot in the forum. My first post. I've only had my ford for about 7mos now. i've already replaced the clutch, flywheel, hydraulics well basically rebuilt that part of the system. My problem now is that I was driving on the highway doing about 70 and she fell on her face. She turns over just fine seems like it's not getting any fuel. Where's a good place to start. Thanks again, Dickl

Chech your fuel pressure then check the ECU relay. Its buy the fuel pump relay. The green one is the fuel pump one and the brown one is for the ECU.

Whn you turn your key on can you hear the fuel pump kick on . Not starting it just turning it over to acc.
