SOURCE: my daughter ford bronco 2 keeps stalling.

This sounds like some troubleshooting will be needed. SOmetimes it's the fuel relay (cheap at local autoparts store), but first, check your RPM's at idle, what are they? After you start it what with engine in gear and foot on brake, what's the RPM? I'm assuming it's an automatic off course. Other big thing, check also the oil pressure, is it low? Sometimes simple things like really low oil (often accompanied by a ticking noise from the valves) can heat up engine and cause it to strain and "choke" when stopped and still in gear. Also, check things like the airfilter, what color is the exhaust when at idle? Give me some more info and I can probably solve this:) thanks!

SOURCE: cutting out while driving and lack of power

try this: With the parking brake set firmly, put the car in gear and keep one foot firmly on the brake while accelerating (you won't go anywhere...)
If the motor cuts out while this is attempted, replace your ignition/spark plug wires.
Hope this gets you back in business.

I have an 1988 ford bronco 2 automatic V6 i pulled

There are shift solenoids in the transmission and apparently there's a problem them. I would get it to a trany shop and have it checked right away. If you continue to drive it you will ruin the transmission. Are sure you put the right computer in the vehicle? If you put a computer from a Bronco II with a manual trans in a vehicle with an automatic trans, the trans won't work right.

Ford transmission 86 4wd will not shift to high gear

It is hard to say from your description what the problem is ... could be linkage issue ... could be trans is going as is with the other poster ...
Losing overdrive. Clutches (bands/clutches) have had it. Be careful driving without that top gear ... doing too high a speed without the appropriate gear causes extra stress on your engine that could accelerate further problems. Try to do only driving at a low enough speed that the top gear is not missed ... will help the vehical last as long as possible.
