Exclamation 98 ranger Dont start need help

i have a 98 ranger 2wd with a 2.5l in it. the other day i was on my way to work and the timing belt broke, so i took it home and replaced the belt and the crank position sensor. well i went to fire it up and it wouldst start. come to find out my fuel pump died, so i replaced the pump and the filter and the plugs. truck fired right up and ran for about 4 mins and died.fuel rain has 35psi key on and 65 while cracking and early running. but will not stay running. if i spray starting fluid in the intake it will fire up and run great of that.any thoughts Im lost on this thing. please help

Sounds like the injectors might be gummed up. You mentioned replacing the pump and filter, so maybe something wound up in the fuel lines when that happened.

Also it couldn't hurt to double check to make sure the fuel filter wasn't installed backwards.

yea the pump is on the right way, it has pressure to the fuel rail so its flowing just not running on it.

Im betting you have the three sprockets out of time. The middle one turns the cam sync sensor and if you dont have it lined up right when you install the new belt it will not fire the injectors and plugs at the correct time.

I would look at the belt again to be safe. If you didnt get the tentioner tight it could of slipped the belt a few teeth.
