      Not sure if this is in the right place. If not, I am sorry. Anyway, while driving, my 1991 ford ranger (2.3L twin plug) just died on me and had to be towed home. Plenty of fuel, new fuel filter but it doesn't seem top be getting any spark. Could it be the ignition module and where the heck is that on this engine. :(

      Not familiar with your vehicle at all, but if its cap and rotor start with that. Maybe coil pack if that's what it has. I would do more research for you but I'm on my cell phone.

      Looks to be coil. I would try that first. You can always get a spark tester for a few bucks at AutoZone to test first.

      I once had that engine in a Capri, and yes the trouble
      could indeed be the ignition module. They were failure
      prone.
      It's located on the front end of the intake manifold,
      toward the radiator on the driver's side. An aluminum
      box a few inches square (or rectangular). Can't miss it.
