Dis you replace the ignition pickup (known as the stator) inside the distributor? See picture below of how it all comes apart.

SOURCE: Truck will crank and then shut off

You will need to do your testing while the vehicle is in failure to start mode.Check wether the coil is recieving 12v and pour a little fuel down carb to see if it wants to run.If pouring a little fuel down carb makes the car try to fire up you probably have a fuel pump issue.If it doesnt try to fire you have an ignition problem.Hope you get it sorted and good luck.

Timing is everything. Try testing you PCM. It's the little gray box near the base of your distributor. If you have spark, and fuel at the rail (plus good fuel rail pressure) than the timing is your problem.

Check the pet-**** on the fuel rail assembly to make sure the fuel at the rail is under presure and getting to your injectors. Then again make sure you have spark, lastly you should be able to test the trouble codes to see if your PCM is the issue.
Goos luck.

1988 bronco II vapor locking?


Just a guess here, but check your ignition coil. Make sure it's mounted nice and tight to the block. a bad ground on a coil will mess with you bad. other than that, I'd check and replace your fuel filter.
