I have a 1990 ford ranger xlt with a 3.1 engine. It will start when the engine is cold, but won’t run after a few minutes, then won’t start right away. Have already changed the gas filter. It will stay running when I use starting fluid.

  1. Most likely and most common cause would be the ignition module located on the outside of the distributor. Part should be less than $30.00 at your local auto parts store. 2 hex screws and 1 electrical plug should be all there is to changing it out.
