Ford ranger 93

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this truck about a month ago. The
guy said don’t let it get below 1/4 tank or it
shuts off and you have to wait 15-20 mins
and it cranks. So  I do not let it get below a
quarter tank. Lately however it’s been
starting to hesitate and chug a lug and
then sometimes completely shut off and
won’t crank for a few minutes.   then it
cranks and it’ll run fine for a few minutes
and When I  step on the gas hard it starts
to hesitate really bad like its starving for
fuel.  I can hear the fuel pump running just
wondering what it is ?  Truck is down right
now and I need to go to work Monday and
don’t have $ for the “It might be this if not
then try that!”  Just wondering if anyone
has had this same thing happen and if yes,
how remedy it.  Thank you

Certainly sound like a fuel pump issue. Have a mechanic diagnose your issue, they can check the fuel pressure amount other things.

I was hoping someone would say fuel filter. Also when done pumping gas it sometimes won’t start up for mins. It just spidder Spudders and shuts off. I now just leave it running while fueling in fear of the truck not running afterwards. I was wondering if it’s stirring up trash and possibly clogging flow at times I’ve never encountered stuff like this man. Should have bought a Chevy or ? lol
