I have a 1997 Ford Ranger XLT 4 wheel Drive. It has 200,100 miles on it. Since I bought it 4 years ago I have had a starting problem with it. Sometimes it will satrt fine for months, other times I will go to crank it and it will crank and sputter, but wont turn over. I have taken it to many mechanics and replaced the relays in the electrical component under the hood. Now when it wont turn over I will prop the hood and punch the electrical pannel and it will adventually turn over... weird I know...
Recently it started shutting off while I am dying. No matter the speed and no matter if I am going straight, hit a bump, coming to a stop, or turn a corner.
I checked the electrical wiring under the electric panel and all wires look good and clean as well as replaced the relays.
Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be and how i could fix it??
