Question about 1986 Ford Bronco

1988 Ford Ranger 2.9 V-6

My old truck won't start . It's has 40 lbs of pressure at fuel rail and 36 psi when it does start . I can get it to run for about 30 seconds until it shuts off . I've already replaced both ignition switches along with the MAP sensor . It is a very basic fuel injection system but I can't figure it out . Any ideas would be great help .

Check injector pulse width first, might have a defective injector.
could also be the EEC-IV, this is the computer that controls the delivery side of the fuel system.

but first like slappy said try the relay just because of simplicity and access.

97 lincoln missfire when warm. Especially going uphill. Rund fine until engine warm about ten minutes from starting. Changed all coils.


Sounds like fuel pressure is too low-either a weak , old pump, or you need to change the fuel filter-most likely, the pump, though. Check the fuel pressure specification for your car, most mpfi systems require 40-50 lbs. of pressure.

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

Truck doesnt start in the morning or after long periods of sitting. I have 40 lbs fuel pressure on the rail with key on and 60 while running. pour in a little gas in the throttle body and it starts right...


you should have 60 -66 psi there is a updated fuel pump with a new connector to splice in i would buy a ac delco pump and make sure you check the fuel filter first and if it does end up being the pump its a good habit to but a new fuel filter with it.

Try to get a fuel pressure reading is 9-13 PSI on a 2.5 L,
40-44 PSI key on engine off, 32-36 PSI key on engine running on a 3.3 L,
40-47 PSI key on engine off, 30-44 PSI key on engine running on 2.8 L

Fuel filter or pump. will start but will not continue. gage show 55 lbs of pressure when start, none when not key on.


Sounds like a pump. You should have 43 lbs of pressure after system is primed by turning key to ON. Pump will run for 5 seconds and shut off if engine is not running. It should hold pressure for 30 minutes with just a few lbs drop. If not, it is the check valve, internal to the pump or the fuel pressure regualtor on the fuel rail. Hardly ever the latter

Fuel pump works but no fuel in the fuel rail


can you hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds when you turn the key to "ON"? Then it stops running until you turn the key to start. Do you have 40 PSI at the fuel rail?

Have you changed the fuel filter?

MY 1991 VOLVO 240 WILL START,RUN FOR ABOUT 15 SECONDS, AND QUIT. AFTER THAT IT WILL TURN OVER, BUT WILL NOT START UNTIL IT SITS FOR A FEW MINUTES. THEN THE PROCESS REPEATS.ANY THOUGHTS ON MY PROBLEM?


Try replacing the fuel filter and locate the fuel pressure regulator it should be located on the top of the motor at the area where the beginning fuel rail is, ( the fuel rail feeds the fuel injectors) if you notice the the pressure regulators vacuum hose is broken replace also if the pressure regulator appears to be wet with gas replace it. The fuel pump may be bad check for appropriate pressure at access valve on fuel rail it should be a minimum of 30 psi fuel pressure.

What is the ideal operating fuel pressure for an 89 Corvette w/ LT-1 TPI


The 5.0L injector is sized to deliver approximately 4.05 milligrams of fuel with a 2.5 millisecond pulse or 18.13 lbs per hr at approximately 36 PSI. The 5.7L injector is sized to deliver approximately 4.83 milligrams of fuel with a 2.5 millisecond pulse or 23.92 lbs per hr at approximately 43.5 PSI. This information is typical for all manufacturers and flow rates will vary slightly even between identicle injectors.
Good luck and hope this helps.

FUEL PUMP MAKES NOISE PRESSURE GAGE READS 40 PSI ENGINE BEGINS TO SPUTTER MY PRESSURE GAGE DROPS TO ABOUT 20 PSI


Fuel pump is bad. At idle pressure should read 50 PSI. Replace with original manufacture fuel pump after market pumps will burn out fast and are unreliable from my experience. Also could have a bad fuel regulator but that only works while driving down the road full throttle. You can unhook the fuel rail pressure regulator and that will give it full fuel and the pressure reading should read 60 PSI while it is running. If you turn the engine off and turn the key to run position it should read 50 PSI and hold for 60 seconds, if it drops below 30 PSI after 30 seconds Pump is defective. Many pumps are going bad here of late as people have been running them less than ¼ tank and this kills the pump. The fuel cools and lubricates the pump so the lower the fuel level the worse it is on the pump below ¼ tank. Not to hard of a job to do if you want instructions let me know.
