(reported on)

Ranger 2.9L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles

At first it was running good and I drove it for at least 1/2 hr then it stalled due to lack of power then stalls again and now it won't start or fire up. We towed it to my place. I have replaced spark plug wires, spark plugs, fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, module, coil. I fire it up still won't run nothing. I pulled spark plug out and its wet from gas. I am like dead in the water. can anyone help me out please. Thanks, Doc
