89 ranger 2.9 hard starting

I am having trouble starting my truck, but once it starts-runs good. It doesn't happen every time I start the truck-but most of the time. It turns over, but takes a few seconds to start.I've done a tuneup, fuel filter, new fuel pump. Any ideas????

I've heard that the ECT sensor is the most common cause of slow starting problems. It seemed to help mine start faster.

Where and what is the ECT sensor? What are the symptoms when they go bad? I have done EVERYTHING i can think of to fix my Bronco II and it still stalls out and wont run. It is getting plenty of fuel and would not start with either. Replaced: Fuel filter, Module, Pick up coil, Coil, Cap, Rotor, Wires, Etc.

The ECT is the coolant temperature sensor. On a 2.9 it is located near the thermostat. Make sure you replace the one that has two wires, the one that has a single wire is for the gauge. The sensor have a specific resistance at a specific temperature, you can test this with an ohm meter.

89 ranger 2.9 hard starting

My old ranger (89 4x4, 2.9) always started hard...and over a period of two years I replaced everything I could think of ...then finally gave up and decided to live with it. A month later I sold the truck. Good luck.
