i have this 92 ranger 2.3 and the timing belt snapped it didnt pop or bang like misfiring it sputtered and cut off.a month before that the water pump went the gasket was compleatley gone so i replaced the pump everybody said i should of replaced the belt as well. but the belt looked fine . now a month later it snapped so how much trouble is it replacing?? and the truck has no distributor it has the coil paks so how do you line it up??
first thing... you need a haynes manual, it gives directions. If my memory serves me properly, 2.3 is a clearance motor, so you may have a problem, the valves may have hit the pistons. the plastic needs to come off the front, and you will see marks on the pullys that line up, once lined up, pull the tensioner back, and install the new belt. before you do anymore, check the compression with a guage. if bad or no compression, be ready to do some major work. if compression checks good, put the plastic on, and roll
