Question about 1992 Ford F250

Open Question

No fuel, No spark in a 1992 Ford F250

While driving to work my 1992 F250 "hiccupped" 3 times then died. We now don't have any spark to the distributor and the fuel pump won't kick in. We were told it may be the EEC power-up relay but haven't had any luck locating it in the truck. We have looked in the fuse/relay compartment and it's not there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: E.E.C fuse keeps blowing in 1991 Ford Explorer

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing

sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

If this speratic problem seams to happen most when it's raining or damp, it is a shorting master contol that is to blame. The master control mother board is located on the firewall. Over time, the moisture seal on the cover fails and the motherboard gets damp and meny false signals are sent. This can even happen if the truck is off and key is not in the ignition (this mother board will alwas have power going to it as long as the battery is connected). A cheap way to check this is to remove the cover, put a plastic grocery bag over the mother board and use an small elastic band to close the open end, allow the wires connected to the mother board to go out the open end. If this solves the problem, replace the seals on the master control cover. Care should be taken as if there is ANY corrossion on the mother board, it will need to be replaced.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

SOURCE: 1991 ford ranger 3.0 eec relay fuse keeps blowing fuel good no sp

I understand that there is a relay box under the hood with 3 relays. Which is which I don't know. However if you are blowing the fuse TO the ecc relay, then the relay must be bad. This relay controls the spark.

Try a new relay first. This may not be good news if that does not work. If you can find the EEC (computer) and unplug it, then replace the fuse-if it blows you have another cheaper part on the circuit thats bad.
If the fuse does not blow, then the EEC must be shorted.
If you have to replace the EEC you may find a kindly dealer with a cash-for-clunker sitting there to violate. Salvage yards have them, Ebay sells them. I have seen them at swap meets for $20. They are a high price part even rebuilt at Dealers or autoparts stores.

I have a 1992 ford ranger 4.0 liter 4x4 I drive for about 5 miles and the truck shuts off like its out of gas I wait 10 2 15 minutes and it strts up again what's wrong

Someone will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel pressure to the injectors when it dies.
Could be a relay such as the EEC relay or fuel pump relay, the ignition module or coil, or a list of other things.

How do you replace the front breaks on a 1992 ford f250 custom??

take off the wheels one or two at a time,un-pin the middle swivel device that the rim slides over,if there is none then just pull the rim off.Now on the caliper is a retractable pin that is triangle shaped about 3-4 inches long.This pin is what holds the caliper and the pad together!Also dont forget to remove the bolts that hold the calipers in place!Now you should be good,whatever you do,don't remove the brake lines!Good luck,hope this helps!-CB

Three things to try:

I would check the fuel filter. Also, the fuel pressure. You may have some warn spark plugs or bad spark plug wires.
