If the fuel pump fails in your Ford 4. Thankfully, Ford has made it super easy to test the fuel pump on your 4. Take all necessary safety precautions, be alert, be careful.
Starting fluid and gasoline can ignite very easily. A bad fuel pump will make your 4. Here are some more specific symptoms:. Although the above list is a not a very complete list of symptoms, the theme that runs thru' them, and any other related symptom, is that the engine will crank and crank, but not start.
Just in case you don't have a fuel pressure gauge handy, you can use starting fluid to see if the no start condition, of your 4. This method is not the most accurate way of testing the fuel pump but it doesn't mean it's not effective. The most important suggestion I can give you is to first make sure that all six cylinders are getting spark thus eliminating the ignition system as the cause of the no start.
NOTE: If you haven't already checked the fuel pump inertia switch, do so before you start this test. Remove the intake air duct from the throttle body.
You don't have to completely remove it, since you'll have to reconnect it in one of the next steps. Open the throttle, manually, and spray starting fluid down the bore. When you have sprayed a good squirt of starting fluid, quickly reconnect the Air Duct to the throttle body you don't have to tighten the Hose Clamp. Once the intake air duct is back on the throttle body, have your assistant, inside the vehicle, crank the engine.
You'll get one of two results with this test: 1. The engine will start momentarily and after a few seconds will die or. The engine will only crank but not start at all. CASE 1: If the engine started and ran for a few seconds : This means that the root cause of the no start your Ford vehicle is currently experiencing is due to a lack of fuel.
Usually, this also means that the fuel pump is bad. But since we don't live in a perfect world, this could also mean a few other things like: the fuel pump fuse is blown, or the fuel pump relay is bad. Your next step is buy or rent a fuel pressure gauge and actually check fuel pressure your local auto parts store, like AutoZone or O'Reilly Auto Parts will rent the fuel pressure gauge to you for free for a cash deposit which they'll return to you when you return the tool.Forums New posts Search forums Search images.

Join Date: Jul Posts: 3. I just bought a Ranger. It will not start. When I turn the key I do not hear the fuel pumps turn on.
I don't know if there is a fuse or relay that I can change. I looked in the fuse panel under the dash and did not see anything relevant to the fuel system. It does have two fuel pumps and I do not hear either running. I don't know if it is related but the fuel gauge is not working either. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Most are off the starter solenoid batt post. Need to check for fused power sources at the relays, and that would verify. There are a lot of things that need to happen before the relay can turn on. ECC relay needs to be good, computer needs to power on for the fuel pump relay to function. Could be a fuse link, bad ground at the tank, computer relay, computer, fuel pump relay, tripped inertia switch in cab under carpetetc Bad ground would go with the gauge, but try to do some isolation first as they may not be related issues.
Also make sure the small single ground wire from the battery is connected computer relay depends on it. Good starting point generally would probably be to test for voltage at the inertia switch. That way you can isolate where there problem is - tank or under the hood. You will want to either use a test light or analog meter.
The computer primes the pump twice for about sec each when the key is put on run, so you may miss these pulses using a digital. You can further test the circuit at the diagnostic connector. There is a pin you can ground that will supplement the computers control over the fuel circuit, so that you can run the circuit all of the time for diagnostics.

For the most part, you should run into few problems if you properly maintain your Polaris Ranger. If your ATV does start to act up, you can perform some basic troubleshooting to get to the root of the problem.
Examine the fuel system. Pull the fuel line and crank the engine to see if it's getting gas. Check the fuel filter for a possible clog if this is the case. Also, make sure the fuel tank has gas. Look at the air filter of your Polaris Ranger. It may have a clog in it, which chokes your engine and won't allow it to run. If you think the air filter has dirt or water in it from driving in harsh terrain or conditions, replace it. Check for spark. Crank the engine again while looking at the electrode on the spark plug for a spark to see if it's functioning properly.
Replace the plug if it's not getting a spark. If it's still not working, check or replace the coil.
