Question about 1989 Ford Bronco II

1989 ford bronco 2 fuel issues

We have put in a new fuel pump and fuel filter and are getting gas to the rail but the vehicle will not stay on. It's like the engine is not getting enough fuel to stay on. Prior to the new fuel pump I could drive the vehicle for about 3 miles then it would shut off. I simply had to turn the vehicle completely off then re-start the engine and it would go for another 3 miles then shut off again, like there was no continual flow of fuel. That 's why I went with changing fuel pump but now can't even get the engine to stay on

You might want to check these out. 1-make sure fuel cap vent is not blocked. 2-there is a fuel cut off switch normally located in the boot this may need resetting.3-get someone to run a diagnostic check using fuel delivery program....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.

First thing to check out will be the fuel pump relay under the hood. It is the one who drives the pump, so if it is defective the pump will not work either to prime the engine, or to make it run. Secondly, you need to check if the fuel filters are OK cause sometimes they clog up and prevent enough fuel from reaching the engine. Thirdly, check the injector(s) for cloging, and clean or replace them as needed. If none of this helps, then the problem probably has nothing to do with fuel delivery, and the next step to check will be the whole ignition system, which is also one of the most comon bronco problems.

Did you flush out the injector lines? Bad injectors are known to act this way. Check fuel pressure regulator for proper operation.

The in-tank fuel pump may not be working however I would check and make sure you have power to the pump before just replacing it.Iyou don't have power at the pump then check the inertia switch and if that's doesn't have power check to see if the fuel pump relay is powering up the pump and repair as needed

1989 Bronco fullsize has sat for the past 6 years and wont start, will turn over, has new gas with fuel stabilizer, still no firing. Replacing spark plugs and the fuel pump are the next two steps. ...


Assuming she ran good before she sat, replacing the plugs, cap and rotor isn't a bad idea.Step 1: Make sure you have good spark. No need to worry about timing right now. Step 2: If you have spark, then we have to see if its getting gas. There are two fuel pumps on this Bronco. One in tank and one on the frame rail. Can you hear either one running? The in tank one should come on for a few minutes and shut off. The front one is harder to hear.If you hear it, borrow or rent a FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE and check your fuel pressure. There is a fitting similar to a tire valve on fuel rail. Pressure should remain constant.If either pump fails you will not get adequate fuel flow. The front pump is easy to get to for trouble-shooting. Don't buy anything unless your sure you will need it. Hope this helps.

I have a ford bronco ii, it Does not seem to be getting fuel, changed filter and checked timing,also had a pressure gauge on fuel pump and it had pressure. just had a new clutch put in it.


Your problem is most likely due to a faulty fuel rail pressure regulator. It is the small can mounted inline with the fuel rail with a vacuum hose attached to a hose barb on to of the unit.

I have a 1989 Bronco 2 and it is not getting the fuel right. I think it is the fuel pump. Does anyone think what else it would be. I already replaced the filter. How would I replace the fuel pump?


The fuel pump is in the tank. Drop the gas tank.

1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.

1989 ford bronco 302 fuel injected timing


on the bad gas part I would recommend to get some STP gas treatment with injector cleaner to put into the gas tank
try a salvage yard that has a 302 engine like yours and change the whole distributor because the shaft could be bad on that end

I had a geo metro that sat a long time and the gas turned to varnish. You will need to drop the tank, clean out the gunk, put in a new fuel pump and and filter and flush the fuel lines out to the injectors.

1989 Ford Bronco 5.0 engine will not crank. Replaced fuel filter and fuel pump, but still will not start. Engine turns over and will try to crank with starting fluid.
