SOURCE: 89 bronco II stars then dies

if the fuel pump cutoff was tripped it would not start at all, I know this for sure, I am a Ford dealer tech and I specialize in no starts and check eng lights. If the ignition switch is bad the 2 halves of the switch will be starting to come apart, it is very common, u should be able to either see it or feel it with your hand.

SOURCE: 90 F-150 4x4 302, installed cold air intake,

Unplug the idle air control valve and see if this returns idle to normal.If it does then concern is either the valve is stuck(sometimes you can just tap it with a hammer and un-stick it) or the computer is commanding it for some reason.If the latter is the case you may be able to correct it by doing a keep alive memory reset,unhook battery for about 30 minutes.If unplugging it does not cure it then you have a bad vacuum leak or a stuck throttle or linkage.

Turn key forward listen for the fuel pump to pressurize if you don't here anything then your fuel pump needs replaced and it's in the tank.

Car cranks but wont start unless starting fluid is sprayed into the throttle body. Once it starts it stays on and runs good.

I would also replace coolant temp sensor, they arent very expensive and cause alot of issues

Where do you put starting fluid in 1989 ford f150

You would spray it into the throttle body by removing the rubber hose between the body and the air cleaner box.
Open the throttle plate before you spray.

My truck turns over, but wont start unless I spray starter fulid. What could be the problem?

Could be blocked fuel filter or fuel pum, does it keep running once you stop spraying the starter fluid, Try also cleaning out the throttle that could be restricting the mix.

Out of gas

u need to make sure the car has gas now and spray starter fluid in the oening in the throttle may have to take the breather tube loose to spray the starter fluid and you may have to do it several times to get gas going back to he injectors again
