Question about 1990 Ford Bronco
Fuel injected,the truck will rev up about to start but just doesnt get enough juice to turn over the engine and start i changed the fuel filter thinking it could have been clogged up(needed it anyway),..i can hear the fuel pump turn on wen i turn the key so i think thats fine.Please if you have any suggestions post them i need to move out of my home in 4 days and its crucial for me to start my truck.
It seems you have a bad battery or starter. If the engine does not turn freely. Check both. Check the battery first and make sure it is good and charged. Also clean the battery cables of any buildup. you can use baking soda and water to remove the acid and a small wirebrush to clean the cable and post (if any). to check the starter, make sure you have a good battery.And crank the engine. If it is still slow and sluggish with a good battery you may have a bad starter. if you want to check the starter you have to remove it and get a pair of jumper cables. connect the negative cable to the starter housing. Then hit the bolt where the positive connects to the starter. be careful because if it's good, it is going to jump a bit. It should turn smoothly and freely. if it does not. the starter is bad. If it still fails to start, make sure the spark plugs have spark in them. remove one and ground it to a good groung. it shold have a good blue spark. If not your coil is nor delivering. from there you will have to troubleshoot from the coil.
