If u replace the TFI ignition module and the distributor stator that will cure the problem, have done 100's of these as a dealer technician. Don't use a cheap aftermarket ignition module, they fail very quickly and cause all kinds of weird problems like stalls surges etc., this is base on allot of experience fixing these ignition system problems, 20 years to be exact.

No power to fuel pump


check the tan- lt green wire on the fuel relay that is located on the right fender, mine wasn't pushed in all the way, this wire shut down injectors and fuel pump, if you are looking for the shut off switch to reset the relay, it is on the passagers side floor board under the dash, gas two wires, orange and pink, I don't remember the color of the stripes, I removed this switch and wired them together without a problem

The fuel pump will not shut off after i turn the engine off on a 1988 ford bronco II


fuel pump relay is stuck in the "on" position. Replace the relay. It will be located under the hood in the engine bay amongst the fuses. You could probably feel for the "hot" one or just start pullin them out one by one and reinstalling them and see which one kills the pump motor.

1984 bronco 2-runs 15 min shuts down wont start again for 20 runs


If the fuel filter is dirty it will settle when you turn the truck off. When it runs for a few minutes the debris in the filter will get sucked into the screen and stop the fuel from getting through. If it was a starter or coil, it would not start at all.
