Hello all... Anyone out there know anything about the 86 Ranger Diesel? I am looking for the fuel shut-off on the vehicle and I can not find it?

    Being that in 86 the Ranger was an apperance package of the f-150 you might want to try the f-150 forum
  • try mazda information the ranger had the same 2.2 diesel as the mazda b2200 the f150 had nothing to do with it.
  • 1986 Ford Ranger has a bad fuel pump. The low pressure fuel pump seems to be acting up I think you should drop the fuel tank and disconnect what you called the "main hose" and filler tube to the tank.

    at last I overcome but not perfectly......
  • The Ranger became its own truck in 1983 and so was not a f150 package.
  • The 1986 Ford Ranger uses a Mitsubishi 4d55t (turbo). It uses a low pressure fuel pump to bring fuel to the injector pump. It has an electric fuel shut off built into the injector pump, a single wire comes from the a solenoid at the rear of the pump just above the injector lines. Power this wire to open the valve.

    I got this figured out but I do not think it is my problem. I tested the shutoff and it worked. I vet fuel when the key is turned on. Injectors are clean and I put in new glow plugs. The one thing however is when I took the glow plugs out there was one the looked like it had been smacked with the piston. I know with gas engines the vehicle will still run but noisely and rough. Will a diesel still run?

    The glow plugs are only for heating the cylinder at start-up. They do not function once the engine is running. You can still start a diesel on a cold day without glow plugs... it just won't be very happy about it until the cylinder temps rise from combustion.
